hello neighbor




How do you tell your neighbor that you are having a new fence installed, and that the construction and mess and noise will likely disrupt their day? Send a handmade card of course!!!




I have three neighbors that will be affected directly, and plan to send each a card with all the details, and a way to contact me if they have any questions. I don't really know them well, but think it's a kindness that should not be passed by! 




I used a brayer to add color to the background, and a couple of stamps embossed in gold really pop. The neighbor stamp is from SRM love one another and the hello is from a sizzix set I picked up at a craft shop. The thank you is a sticker from SRM Thank you stickers by the dozen, popped up with foam

I added a few colored rhinestones, and a spritz in a matching color glimmer mist for a bit of splatter.
perhaps a little gift card to starbucks is in order too....on the plus side they will no longer have to look at a disheveled broken fence! win win eh?! :)
