Happy Saturday! I should be cleaning and washing windows and doing whatall and whatnot to get ready for Thanksgiving, but I'm also looking down the barrel of a Christmas Card Overseas Deadline, so there's a flurry of activity in the Playhouse. I've got the recent hamsterfall working in six-part harmony while Hammy orchestrates, so I thought I would take a break from them and post a cuppla creations.
First up is a tag:
I was inspired by this adorable tag made using Lawn Fawn products by Samantha Casey for Day Ten of Tracey's event:
Next I have a big beautiful poinsettia for you:
I watercolored the flower and I'm sorry that the color came out looking a bit dull in the photo from the lateness of the day. In real life, it's quite vibrant and sparkly from winking. It also looks a little poofy because I used Loll's trick of rolling over the back with my stylist to stretch the paper and plump up the image. Wait. What? Is "stylist" the right word? The nice lady who does my hair? That can't be right.

The twofers make my posts longer, but I do want to introduce you to these five talented card artists!
Niki Garcia of Stampin'HI. Niki is from Hawaii and she started blogging in 2012 to be a more active member of this paper-addicted community that we all love. She is the mom of two and a full-time Registered Nurse. As always, I'm impressed by women who can mom and blog! Nikki not only manages both of those well, she serves on design teams! You will love her bright and cheerful cards!
Ka of Stamping Smiles Designs. Ka is from Wisconsin and although she only started blogging in January of this year, she is already well known to a lot of you. And rightly so! As she says herself, she makes cute and whimsical cards guaranteed to make the recipient (and her blog fans) smile. Ka is going to start her own challenge in January, so head's up!
Jennifer Loftfield of Caffeinated Papercuts. Jennifer started blogging in 2011. There is more testosterone than estrogen in Jennifer's household which means, as she says, she loves crafting because it gives her the chance to use pink! Jennifer is another designer and award winner whose art is so inspiring. In addition to creating her card art, Jennifer enjoys gardening and cooking and ... obviously ... coffee!
Dusi of Dusi Creates. Dusi is from Slovenia and she started blogging in 2013. She is not just a card artist, although you will be inspired and impressed by the card art she does create. She makes 3D projects, jewelry, ornaments, and brooches and pendants, so there is truly a lot to see. Dusi's special creations are colorful, fun, and full of life!
Thank you for joining, ladies, and welcome to the Playhouse!
