Recently friends and I went shopping for little "welcome to gateway" pieces for our Christmas putz villages; some settled for pieces made by Lemax. Instead, I opted for a custom order from Howard Lamey of littleglitterhouses.com
and I couldn't be happier (Howard even managed to find a tiny pug dog!)
As you can see, he utilized the stone textured paper found on Paul Race's site - BIG INDOOR TRAINS - you can check it out here: http://www.bigindoortrains.com/primer/buildings/stonecottage/stone_cottage.htm
I've also removed the text in a photo so you can envision it with your own "welcome" or whatever message; click on the photos. Enjoy.
