Even though this card was purely for fun, I did have some inspiration. I left a comment for Mark over on the Deadbeat Designs blog, telling him that I had no stamping mojo. He replied & suggested I stamp some bluebonnets. That Mark sure is a wise one. Nothing makes this Texan (wait - can I officially call myself a Texan?? I've lived here nearly 15 yrs now, does that qualify me??) - anyway - as I was saying, nothing makes this Texan happier than thoughts of spring and bluebonnets! So this is what I made:The bluebonnet stamp and the "Sending you a big ol' Texas hug" sentiment are both from Deadbeat Designs. That poor greeting got a little lost in all the distressing, but it's easier to see in person. Another thing you can't really see is the gorgeous shimmer this card has - I spritzed the entire thing with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist. Yum. The straight pin & half pearls were white, I made them blue with a Copic. Love that!
Now my goal is to keep up with the stamping therapy, to keep my spirits high and my mojo intact! Thanks for stopping by today!
