House Party Update

Yesterday I announced the details for my upcoming House Party. You can find the details here.  I have received emails and created envelopes for:
Cindy
Cherry
Kimberlee
Nancy
Deb
Margi
Jacky
Karen
Sharyn and
Mel
If you emailed me your address and are not on the list, please email me again at rinda1961@yahoo.com, and I'll get an envelope together for you.  Also, if you're not on the list and want to participate, email me your mailing address.  The more the merrier!
The art today is a simple card I made on a plaster background and featuring a hand-drawn house. ETA:  The plaster I use is sold as redi-wrap or rigid wrap in the U.S.  You can buy it at Michael's in the paper mache aisle.  It's the stuff you would use to make a plaster cast.  I featured other art using it during the last blog hop, which you can see here, and also in this post on classes I plan to teach (including one  on creating with plaster).

Great card...how does one make a plaster background?

When I looked at the card without reading your explanation, I thought the background was hand made paper. I never would have had the brilliant idea of using plaster. It's a great card!

Amazing to use a plaster background...not something I would ever have thought of....and thanks for organising all this.

Love the idea of the plaster background but I've no idea where or even if I'd find some here!! Will have to investigate :-) (Michael's sounds like an amazing store. The number of times an American friend/blogger has said something about getting a product from Michael's...)

this little pink house is great on the plaster! I still need to go buy some plaster - and print out the Mike's coupon!
