How's it Waggin' Money/Check Holder

Since I didn't get to see my aunt during the holidays, we normally exchange gifts between the kids and her youngest son. He is my godson and now that he is a teenager, money is the way to a teenager's heart, right? I scoured the gallery for the perfect money holder and came up with this money holder template by Lisa Somerville. If you haven't visited her blog, go and check it out. She has tons of great tuorials. I also had a reason to use a stamp set I won as blog candy from Tracy Dorton. I got to play with H&M's A Lil' Behind. I just love this set because there are so many funny sayings. I believe this set was inspired by Mothermark. I came across this sketch in Papercrafts Magazine April-May issue. I didn't realize that this is a sketch from Julie Ebersole (JulieHRR). What an honor to be able to use her sketch...

The second picture shows how it looks on the inside. I left it plain and had no writing on it so that my aunt could recycle it for later use. I probably should have taken a picture of the inside with some money in there for the full effect (the money or check slips into a slot at the bottom of the panel (hard to see)...sorry maybe next time I'll remember to do that.
