Happy Sunday Funday!
I've been working on making cards for family members who have birthdays in September (a lot of them) and I love pulling out my sunflower stamps for them. Of course, I also love seeing if I can find challenges to play in and immediately I was drawn to the current CAS(E) This Sketch.
Unfortunately, I ran into a glitch because none of my sunflower images was big enough to be the focus pocus per the sketch by the fantastic N@ Ali. Not to worry, I pulled out one of my paper sunflower embellies instead and using my fun burlap ribbon, I made this little number:
I think what happened then was that turtleneck sweaters were invented and so that made it easy to hide something from another person by going up behind them and pulling the neck of their woolen sweaters over their faces, which included their eyes. Hmm? You can see that, right?
Remember when you did that to your little sister that time your friend walked into the room with a pack of smokes and you didn't want your sister to tell your parents so you somersaulted over the back of the couch and grabbed her sweater neck and yanked it up over her eyes before she knew what hit her? Ah, memories.
You're welcome. I know you appreciate it when I look into the oranges of idiots.
New Friends Corner
There is a lot of sunshine yellow over the Playhouse as new friends have come a knockin'! I'm delighted to have you meet:
Mary V. of Mary V Scraps. Mary has been blogging since early in 2012. She is a wife, mother, and lover of paper. She makes really wonderful bright cards and even has amazing designs for wedding invitations and adorable shaped children's party invitations. You will be impressed by her works of art!
Connie of Crafty Home Cottage. I met Connie through The Creative Blog Hop. She is a woman of simple pleasures, a wife, and grandmother. She and her husband of 38 years live on an acre of land in the Pacific Northwest and enjoy every day. Connie is an uplifting soul who shares lots of art and creativity on her blog!
Lindsey of Bashful Blogging. As the blog name suggests, Lindsey is shy, so I won't say anything else about her. Just kidding. Lindsey is a hoot and a talented card artist. I met her through the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, so that tells you a lot about her. You will enjoy your romp through her blog!
Nikki Acton of Addicted to Art. Other than three posts in 2013, Nikki started blogging this year. She is a dedicated and talented artist and huge fan of Tim Holtz. I don't know about some of you, but I find the fans of TH make the most extraordinary works of art with their layers and embellishments and innovation. If you aren't familiar with what I mean (or even if you are!), a visit to Nikki will be revealing and appealing!
Bibiana of Stamping With Bibiana. I first introduced you to Bibiana here when I was tagged by her to participate in The Creative Blog Hop. Her talents and interests and her generous spirit of sharing are more fully described in that link so I hope you will click over to read it and then visit Bibiana to see for yourself all that she has to offer!
Thank you for joining, ladies, and welcome to the Playhouse!
We are still without a new computer, but the pictures of our weekend with the boys were not lost, thank goodness! Here is a little collage for you:
