Mr Lime and I recently moved into a new neighborhood and have been overwhelmed by the friendly welcome we've received from everyone on the block. We wanted to say an official "howdy" to all of our new neighbors so I created these door'naments from driftwood cottages I made for Elmer's Master Craftsters!



On the front of the card, I'm writing personal notes and providing our contact information.



I glued a small paper bag to the back and stuffed it with cards stamped with ideas about things we could offer them if they ever want to swing by our place Smiley.





I have a few more to finish up and then we'll be strolling the block and hanging them on the doors of our new neighbors!

Those are so lovely, Lime! I wish our neighbors were a little more welcoming when we moved from FL to NC, but we have made a couple friends. Perhaps I should have spoiled them like you have Wink I love the extra touch with the paper bag full of reasons to visit Smiley

Thank you both! I do hope our neighbors like them. They've been leaving treats of wine and chocolate for us so I feel like it's the least we can do.

Wine AND chocolate? Oh my, I am quite jealous. Of course anyone would be crazy not to love those adorable houses and the nice little cards.

Great plan, Lime!  I owe some new neighbors across the street some banana bread or oatmeal cookies - that is usually what I make for my new neighbors that move in!  I love your idea - so fun AND creative - of course!!   Cool
