Christmas Gifts to the Neighbors!!!!

We have the sweetest neighbors . . . when we moved here 5 years ago . . . we found little packages on our doorstep during the holidays . . . homemade candy, cookies, etc. . . all from our new neighbors!!! What a warm feeling I feel in my heart when I find the goodies on our doorstep or a child delivering a package from the neighbors!!!!! I decided to reciprocate by making a package of 4 handmade greeting cards wrapped in cellophane bags and a bow . . . here are a few from this year . . .
This one is stamped on K & Company Mira Collection scrapbook paper . . . the stamp is the Michelle Ward Clear Stamp set from Stampington . . .
The second one is also from the K & Company Mira Collection . . . the stamp is from Christine Adolph's line from Stampington . . .

The third one is another K & Company Mira Collection with a Christine Adolph stamp from Stampington . . .

The fourth one is on K & Company Urban Rhapsody Sugar Rush Flat with another Christine Adolph image from Stampington . . . I hope my neighbors like their gifts!!!!!!

Hi there, Michi. And you are a very sweet and generous neighbor yourself. These are just wonderful cards you made. I love them all, and especially love the colors you used on the first two. The bird one is my favorite. Great job! Your neighbors are lucky people to receive these.

Merry Christmas to you.

Fabulous cards! We exchange gifts with our neighbors also. Last night one of them brought us smoked ribs hot out of the smoker. Our other neighbor always makes us German cookies from recipes that were handed down from her Grandmother. I so look forward to them every year!

I LOVE the second one. I could see that as a larger print, hanging on my wall with a black frame. Nicely done.

Michi - living in "anonymous" Los Angeles - where no one knows their neighbors - it's refreshing to hear that "neighborly-ness" exists behind the "Orange Curtain"! How lucky you are! Love your idea of giving handmade cards - and they are all so beautiful - hope your mother-in-law is better - and congrats on your blog award - xo reva (Los Angeles)
