Welcome Home- There She Goes Mother of All Blog Hops!

Happy Mother's Day Weekend, peeps!
I hope all of you Mama's out there are starting to feel the love!
If you are just coming to my blog this morning to check me out, I'm on a blog hop for There She Goes stamps! We're partying and celebrating Mother's Day showing off of There She Goes' sets! (you can start from HERE to go the whole length of the hop but if you are coming to me from JESSIE'S awesome blog, you are in the right place!)
Why is it called the MOTHER of ALL BLOG HOPS? Well, Susie Q, you've never seen a bigger hop in all your pretty life! In other words, you don't want to miss a second! :)
There be PRIZES to WIN!! 6 months of stamps! Ha! So make sure you start at the beginning! To be eligible to win, just leave a little comment at each blog along the hop and at the end when you reach the There She Goes blog you can put your name in the Mr. Linky.
So, onward! Check out what I made with my Welcome Home set:
A "welcome to the neighborhood" card for one of my new neighbors! :) I stamped the doorway with Stazon onto Arches watercolor paper, colored away and then set it up here with the card stock and pretty designer paper (October Afternoon's "Farm Fresh: Root Cellar" and "Report Card: Bus Route"). Added ribbon, sewed it up and viola! :)

I chose to keep the inside nice and open:
I wanted room to put our names and contact info and the traditional "If you ever need a cup of sugar...". :)
And of course, a card is niiiice....BUT....
...A loaf of homemade "Honey Wheat Bread" makes it just a wittle bit more better, don'tcha think? Mmmhmmmmmmmmm!

So who wants to be my neighbor? Hahahahaha!
Now, you make sure you make a stop at each blog along the hop and leave a comment!
You're next stop on the hop is KATIE'S BLOG!!

....Heello?!?
Are you there? Shake yourself away from the bread picture, woman! There are STAMPS to win!
Your carb loving friend,
