new neighbours

Today has been a busy day, as has this last few days. I have been baking and trying new things, and today made homemade tortilla shells. They are really good, and my son loves them. Sadly my old and very abused rolling pin died while making them so I am now on the hunt for a 12-15 inch marble rolling pin, which I am noticing don't exist. SO if you know where I can buy one I, and ship to Canada, I will gladly send you a free stamp set from my retired for sale stamps. I should note my old one was not marble, but some weird plastic fiberglass thing and it was 12 inches, which for what I use it for is almost too small, hence the 15 inch wish list. I have also been making a lot of homemade white bread, and would love to try whole wheat, so if you have a great recipe for that I'd love it if you would share it with me.

We also got new neighbours recently, and I wanted to make them a card. I saw a very similar card done on SCS by KIM L, and wanted to case it. I do not have the good neighbors stamp set, but the paper stack from SAB has these cute houses and trees and clouds, so I paper pieced instead of stamping.



Stamps: Well Scripted (retired)
Inks: Chocolate Chip
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, SAB paper stack, Baja Breeze
Misc: Rhinestones, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, Stampin' Dimensionals, Rub Ons (Eggcellent Eggs Kit), 5/8" Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon

This is too cute to give away! I love the 3D effect of paper piercing and you did an incredible job with the whole layout!

Love the paper piecing! Those little details making all the difference.

Great idea to cut up the olive dsp to make it look like grass. And I have to agree, great 3D effect!

How cute! Love the paper piercing -- I just don't know if I have the patience to cut out everything.

On a side note, my grandma has a glass rolling pin with a screw off cap so you can put cold water in it -- similar to a marble rolling pin -- you might want to try looking for that.

Wow...this is FANTASTIC! All of that cutting would wear me out! LOL!

This is an amazing card, and a great way to show how you can use what you have on hand to get the look that you want.

Such patience cutting your clouds and trees! Great effect it turned out to be though.

I wish I knew how to make bread.

I love this set and your card is great, I bet your new neighbors loved it. I hope they appreciate all the time you spent cutting out all those pieces.

Thanks for sharing
Kim
