A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Isn't this one fun? I know I say it a lot but ... I LOVE this set.

My mother moved to town a few years back and lives a few miles from us in an apartment. I made this card for her. The stamp set is All in the Family, the houses are a coordinating Jumbo wheel. The houses were stamped on WW, colored with markers and cut out. Then I mounted them on the same rolled images on Soft Sky card stock, but Bashful Blue or Baja Breeze should work. I just LOVE the soft sky and wish it would have come back to use for ... SKY!

I colored the clouds in the wheel with my white gel pen. I stamped the people on Watercolor paper and bled Stampin' Write markers to get the shading.It was a fun project!

The fence is done and now all we have today is final cleanup and polishing so to speak. It should be wonderful. It smells good too (cedar!)

We'll see you tomorrow for Scrappin' Saturday!
Much love and joy,



  1. Super cute card, Karen! I have had my eye on this set for a ling time, but I've never ordered it yet. I may have to add it to my neverending wish list! TFS!

  2. What a great card for your mom. Was there a special occasion or is it "just because"? I'm sure she'll love it.

  3. It was mother's day. Kind of an odd card for that but it spoke our heart so I was happy. she loved it then I asked for it back to take a quick photo! Aren't I awful?

  4. This is sooo cute! What a fantastic scene you have created. TFS!

  5. I love this wheel. I don't use it enough!

  6. I feel the same way Heidi. I love the wheel but don't use a LOT of my stuff as much as I should.
