Howdy Neighbor

Ye-haw!
Celebrate the Occasion Challenge blog March 28th. New Home. I wanted to do something different for my card. I thought about doing a cow and a we've 'MOO'ved card to give to old neighbors, but I decided not to, even though I have been dying to use the cow on create a critter cricut cart.

Instead, I used a horse and the the pun 'Neigh' bors, becuase a horse says neigh. Get it? *giggle*
There are still neighbors I have never met and this card would have solved that problem. I am a bit of a recluse :) You never know, if you live in Utah I might be your neighbor!
THe Howdy was cut from Create a Critter too, and the tag was cut with Once Upon A Princess Cart (beautiful tags o there) And then embossed with my sizzix texture boutique purse and the damask card.
I hand wrote the tag that I cut from Once upon a Princess cart. to match and trimmed it to fit, but I wish I would have found a small stamp to stamp it instead . So, unless you have better handwriting than I do- and chances are you do, but if not, stamp it :)

Go enter your New House craft now. The month is almost over and a great cricut cartridge is up for grabs! The thing I love about this challenge blog is any type of project is accepted and any type of technique- meaning, if you don't want to use your cricut (or don't have one) you can still enter. Go see what the amazing Design Team has put together for you- they seriously blow my mind away every week.

Challenges:
GAB Challenges - favorite technique, dry embossing
More Than Favors - something funny
Cooking with Cricut - funny quote, saying, or pun
*hugs* Ya'll Come Back Now, Ye Hear?

I love it!!!! The pun is really great and I love the whole idea behind the card! I am a recluse too! I know the neighbors right beside me and that is it (and we've been here for 4 years in a nice, quiet neighborhood)! This is the year that I am going to go out and get to know people and I like the idea of making them a card! Thanks! Great job with the challenge this week!
