Welcome to the Neighborhood

Well, I've been fiddling around in the craft room a bit... So many things to make and so little time!

We have some new neighbors and our kids have been playing together nearly every day. I figured that this calls for a Welcome card and some pumpkin loaf.  :)


I was inspired by Retro Sketches last sketch. I used my Fabulous Frames Polaroid die to create a frame and then started coloring!

The card base was impressed with the Sunrise impression plate and then inked with Wild Honey and Vintage Photo around the edges.

Thanks for peeking!

I forgot to mention how I smiled when I saw that you used pattern paper! I remember the paper and had some myself. The combination of all you did is beautiful!
