November Stamp of the Month: "Around the Block"

Welcome to the November SOTM "Blog Hop". Can't believe it is November already and can't believe that I am still waiting till the last minute to get these projects done...I thought that was one of the reasons I got my Stamp of the Month's early!!





If you have come from Laura's blog you are on the right track. If you just happened by, you might want to got to Jena's blog and start from the beginning or at least find the full list of participants.....



Here we go:



I created this cute "Welcome to the Neighborhood" card using the November SOTM set "Around the Block." I loved stamping the house many different ways and using my colored pencils on this project. I truly love to color and consider it therapy after a stressful day. I used my chalk and a "cloud" stencil to do the sky and gold embossing on the house trim.



My son wanted to help me, so I let him color his own house and thought you might want to see his handywork. He is only 7 and I thought he did a great job!




I am also working on a scrapbook page with a really tall house, but you will have to wait a day or two to see that as we had two soccer games, some last minute costume emergencies and two parties to go to tonight! Best get on with it....



Now "hop" on over to Lori's blog to see what she has created for you!




Have fun!!!

Really cute details on your house. And I really like how you used the 'planks' to create a small table for the flower box.
