Good Neighbor Card

It is SO sad that this stamp set is from the Sale-a-Brations brochure. But it's not going to stop me from keeping the set in my stash of stamps!! I just think it's adorable and will be a very well used set.

This card was made at Sue's ever SO fun Card Buffet. Of all the cards we did (and they were all fabulous) this one was my favorite!

We have a new neighbor that moved in on the street behind us. SO I thought I would send her a "welcome to the neighborhood" card. What a perfect set to do that with! Since there is no mail service tomorrow I decided I would make that card tomorrow night. Nothing like rushing into a project or having it ready a day in advance!!! Just taking advantage of no mail service!

This card was made using Crushed Curry, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla card stock. We did a little bit of paper piercing. It added a nice touch to the card, don't you think?

The decorative paper is from the "Welcome Neighbor" designer series paper pad. Isn't it adorable? It's kind of tiny to see but trust me, it's ADORABLE!!! We used the scallop punch on he edge of that paper. And I really don't know what set the words are from. Obviously it's from a set I don't have. But the wording on mine will be saying something like "Welcome to the neighborhood!" If I can't find those words I'll just type them up on the computer and print them out.

Isn't it a cute card? I can't wait to go play and get that card done so I can get it in the mail. I have other cards I need to get done too. I've been REALLY bad about putting things off lately. My time has been consumed with entering receipts in the bookkeeping software. UGH! Again it's a case of putting things off. If I would enter them when I get the receipts or at the end of the month it would make this time of year SO much easier for me. I even went out and bought an keypad for my laptop so I can enter the numbers in easier and quicker. I had to try it out and I did enter a few receipts. Yes, it did make it easier and quicker but it still didn't make it fun!!! LOL It is one of those jobs that will NEVER be fun, no matter how hard you try to make it fun. If you can even make it fun. The only fun part about it would be the bottom line showing something like a nice hefty refund!!! Now that's fun!! LOL

I have another fun project coming up in a couple of days. Plus more technique pages. There's so many fun things waiting to be finished and posted here! You don't want to miss it!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Love the layout on this card. I thas been a while since I have come over here, my updates only show the title and my computer makes me cut and past the urls to check out blogs so I normally just skip ones that I can's see. Nothing more frustrating that going through to motions to find you don't even like what you see, lol. Anyway I alway enjoy your designs so thought I would click over to a peek, been a while!
