Welcome to the Neighborhood

My grandmother used to love this saying...

The hurrier I go, the behinder I get.

I wonder if Grandma had had any idea that some day that saying would be my life?

I'm just thankful that I have gracious friends who put up with me... including the ladies of the "Baker's Dozen" card group on SCS.

Every month one of the Baker's Dozen send little kits to the others (with any special directions) and we all get busy and create. That's pretty easy, right? Then why, oh WHY, was I so far behind?!?!?!? I hadn't touched Debby's June kit, Kelly's July kit, or Roxie's August kit. So.......... this week, I got them all out and created some cards.

Today I'm going to show you what I did with Debby's June kit. But first, here's what she said:

Home is my favorite place to be with family and friends...

While cleaning the other day I ran across this 2004 SU Stamp set "Right at Home".

Make one large card from the papers and items enclosed and then make a smaller card or tag with the remaining items.

The white and kraft card stock is from Paper Studio

Papers are from Reflections - Cartulina (dark turquoise) Blue Tn Plaid and Tan Pindots

The Chevron Mini-bags are from Jillibean

The Stamp Set and ink are from Stampin' UP - "Right at Home" printed with Chocolate Chip ink.

I threw in some tiny tags that hopefully you can use.


Well, yes, Debby, I certainly DID enjoy working with your kit!

Here's the card I made:

Here's the sentiment that is found on the inside:

For my little project, I decided to make a little card that fits inside the little bag. I thought a person could also include a gift card in that little bag if they wanted to.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Debby, thank you for waiting so patiently and for sending such a fun kit!

Hmm - know the feeling Jeanette - but that said I am so glad you stopped long enough to play with that kit - the results are gorgeous.
