Welcoming 3 New Neighbors...

I'm usually on top of welcoming my new neighbors.  I'm embarrassed to say that the last 3 families that have moved in have been here about 4-6 weeks before I could get some goodies baked and a card made to bring to them.  About a week or so after our neighbors moved in across the street, we had neighbors move in down the cul-de-sac from us, a couple days later a military family moved in across the street from those new neighbors, then a couple days later we had new neighbors move in up the cul-de-sac from gald to see those empty houses filled with families=)

I used CTS18 for all three cards and kept them all very CAS.  I used Garden Green, Black, Crumb Cake, and We R Memory Keepers Family Keepsake paper and SU Everything Baby stamp set
This is the card that I made for the first family that moved in. It had started to rain as we got to their house, he was kind enough to invite us in. We chatted for a bit, really nice guy...we look forward to meeting his wife when she returns from CA.


I used Crumb Cake, Cameo Coral,  Basic Gray, and We R Memory Keepers paper, SU Everything Baby stamp set, MFT Die-namic and CTS18 for my sketch. 
This was for the second family that moved in.  A female answered the door, then a male came to the door.  After chatting for a bit I asked if they had kids...he pointed to his daughter, talk about embarrassing!  She looked a bit older (obviously for her age) and he also looked very young...ahhh foot in mouth!  Anyhow, they're a military family, turns out he works behind the fence in the compound with my hubs, just not in the same squadron.

I used Riding Hood Red, Basic Gray, Crumb Cake, We R Memory Keepers paper and SU Everything Baby stamp set and again, using CTS18
This was for the third family that moved in, Christina and Allen. By the time we walked up to their house the temperature had dropped (yes, it does get cold in Tucson!) and it was raining pretty good, we were really quick dropping off the cookies and card to Christina and didn't stay to chat=( Later that evening her husband Allen came to the door to introduce himself to us, thank us for the cookies and welcoming them, and brought us two plates full of food from the BBQ they touched my heart to say the least. I talked to him for a while (my hubs went to bed early).  I'm grateful for three great families that have moved into our neighborhood, I hope they enjoy it here as much as we do!

Thank-you so much for stopping by!
Have a great week!


  1. Your cards are wonderful. Love how they are similar but that you have switched them up.
    Thanks so much for sharing at CAS(E) this Sketch this week!

  2. You are such a good neighbor...makes me wish I could move in next to you.


Thank-you for taking a peek at my blog! Have a fabulous day!
