Teapot Tuesday 166

Our teapot inspiration today is not your typical teapot.  Of course you can see that it is a Teapot House, or maybe even a playhouse.  Our destination station this week opens up the interpretation of this teapot.   As the challenge translation says ....

"Brings cards with a southwestern flair. Bring cards with potted plants. Bring cards inspired by the joys of winter in Summery Arizona!" 

What I read and forgot was the destination station person likes flowers - hydrangeas and hibiscus - and the color purple.  How I came up with cactus is beyond me.  But here we go.  

Maybe it was because it got so cold here over the past day or so. HWNSNBP and I have been fighting over the covers at night not wanting to turn the heat on just yet. So I had blanket on my mind.

I thought I would make a Native American blanket with a base of Sahara Sand cs and wavy stripes of Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Island Indigo, and Early Espresso.  I fringed the edges of the paper with a scissor. 

These stamps come from a package of clear stamps that I got at a flea market last summer for pennies.  I happened across them the other day when I was doing some "straightening up" of my work table.  You never know what you're going to find.  Well, at least I don't!  The chihuahua in his sombrero was stamped onto watercolor paper, as was the cactus and they were colored and then cut out before I adhered them to the center of the blanket.  The sentiment "hello" comes from Pennant Parade. 

So now it's time to peruse the gallery.  Hopefully this won't be too far out in left field!
