Tag! You're It!

Pin It

Hello!  (and long time no blog, eh?)  Well, it has indeed been a few days since my last post, but that doesn't mean I haven't been gettin' my crafty on!!!  I have several new projects I will be sharing over the next couple of days -- promise!  :)

I wanted to pop in tonight to share a card I made for my new neighbors a couple of doors down to be accompanied by a batch of my famous (!) Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies {if I can stand to part with them when I see their golden brown gooey-ness emerge piping hot from the oven!! }).

But I digress.

Let me start by saying I have the best neighbors.  And we have the coolest quarter-of-a-block in our whole neighborhood.  Seriously.  I really lucked out five years ago when I bought this house (oh my goodness…  as I write this, I'm realizing that today is actually my fifth anniversary here in La Casa de Jen!!  :)

But I digress.  Again.

All of that is to say that my new neighbors have some big shoes to fill!  Hope they're as cool as my friends that moved!  (fingers crossed!)

Ok, let's get to it!  I wanted to make a welcome to the neighborhood card and was inspired by the current challenge over at A Blog Named Hero -- to use a tag in your project!  My tag started out plain white and I distressed the bejeezus out of it using my Distress markers to create the sunset.  All stamps used are Hero Arts, the house is colored with Copics, and there is Glossy Accents on the windows!

I hope you like it... (I have decided that I better keep improving at this paper-crafting thing or count on keeping my day job, 'cuz bricklaying is not one of my God-given talents!!!!  :)   I'll be back tomorrow to share the card I made to say goodbye to the neighbors who left!  Until then…  Tag!  You're It!  :)


  1. This is amazing! It will sure make them feel welcome, and good neighbors are hard to find! Ha! We had great neighbors when we lived in Hawaii, and then horrible and I mean with a capital H moved in next door. Close quarters there, but it was pure Hell till we moved from Hawaii, but NOW I am loving life again and have an awesome neighborhood. Our neighbors are moving next year and fingers crossed we don't have what we had in Hawaii. So anyway....I hear ya!

  2. This card is amazing! That ribbon is gorgeous and the coloring is totally fantastic. I am jealous of your new neighbors :)

  3. Jen this is awesome! That bow is perfectttt!!! Love this card to bits..wish I was your new neighbor! :)

  5. I hope the newbies live up to the golden standard! Congrats on your 5 years too!

    That tag, that tag is gorgeous! Beautiful blending on the background, beautiful house. It's just gorgeous! And such a generous gesture (esp if you can pry your sticky fingers away from the cookies!).

    Good luck with the brick laying, remember, lift with your legs, not your back :)
