MISS YOU NEIGHBORHOOD

Here's another sneak peek using an April release that will be available April 1st. I used an arrow in the new stamp set GET THE POINT to make my houses. Then I used a small square in SNOW MUCH FUN to make my windows. Lastly, I used a banner from HEY CUPCAKE to make my front door.

These colors and the miss you makes me think of my Marine son serving in Afghanistan. It will probably be sent to him!

RECIPE:
STAMPS:Snow Much Fun, Hey Cupcake, Get the Point (The Alley Way Stamps)
PAPER:Worn Parchment (Clear Dollar Stamps), Oxford (Basic Grey)
INK:Tim Holtz Distress ink Walnut Stain, Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES:Tim Holtz Blender Tool, Dimensional Tape
TECHNIQUES:Paper piecing

THANK YOU FOR VISITING. ENJOY YOUR DAY!

How creative! Love how the little houses turned out. I would never have guessed they started life as an arrow! Prayers to your son, too.

I really do love this sweet and creative card. I hope you will take a moment to link it up at word art wednesday. I just said a prayer for you as I stopped by your blog, and I really do pray that God will bless your life as you create for His glory. You are a blessing to us, and I really hope you will join us and play along this week. You are a special blessing to our blog, and to me. May God bless you as you create for Him. God's richest blessings be with you always,
