I bought this stamps set by Anna Wright from Whipper Snapper awhile ago now. I have used it before. It is called "Hello Neighbor". I bought it with the intention of making Thank You cards for my husbands business. He does house plans for people.
He likes to send thank you cards to I told him that I would use this set in some of his thank you cards. So far it has worked out well for me.
This card took me a long time to color as I was so picky that I kept doing it again and again. I think in all it took me two hours to get to this finished product. Way too long but it was a fun time. I have to admit. Coloring is just so realxing. I watercolored it with SU markers. I just love the colors. I actually was inspired to make this card from some examples that we received from Whipper Snapper when we placed our order. This card is alot like the sample but I added my own twist and used the cuttlebug for the background instead of dp. I have to say that I am pleased with how it turned out but I wish that I would have used my nesties on this one. I think they would have set it off wonderfully. Oh well maybe next time. I am sure that I will have more opportunities to use this set again.
I hope to get at some more cards the weekend.
Enjoy your weekend and take care

I made this card to give a friend of my dh as she got her degree at Memorial University doing night courses. It must be really hard working full time and getting a degree in the nights. Roma good for you girl!
This is another Whipper Snapper stamp that I bought awhile ago and never had a reason to use it until now. These stamps are just so fun to color. They are quickly becoming my favorite I think.
My dh told me that he thought it would be better not to use too many emblishments on this card as Roma is not a frilly person so this is what I came up with. For me I think a card is not complete unless I have some sort of emblishment. I love these fake dew drops that I bought in the candle section at Michael's. They add that extra little something that you need sometimes.
I am going up in my stamproom now to start something new so hopefully I will be back real soon to show you.
