Texas Tuesday!

Hey Y'all! It's time for a little Texas Tuesday creatin'! Yee-haw! :-) Today I'm sooooo excited to be joined by a bunch of other cowgirls, some of my favorite Texas stampers - make sure and hop on over to check out what Shannan, Linda, Geeta & Betty created! Woohoo! (ETA: Mark from Deadbeat Designs played too!! YAY!! I officially have to stop calling us a group of cowgirls, it seems.)

For today's Texas-inspired project, I decided to repurpose a Laughing Cow cheese box!


The idea is that eventually this will hold a little circle-shaped mini-scrapbook of our bluebonnet photos from this spring, but for now it is only holding a set of cut out photos. When I get the scrapbook finished I'll have to show you that too. :-)


The bluebonnet stamp is from Joyce Meyer/Texana Designs. I used Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paint to cover the box. I was inspired by the latest CardPatterns sketch (which happens to be sponsored by Hero Arts this week!):


Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget, if you're feeling like releasing your inner cowgirl yourself, just leave a link on this post (I may add a linkie thing tomorrow, I'm too sleepy at the moment) and I'll do a little Texas round-up at the end of the month!


  • Stamps: Bluebonnet by Joyce Meyer for Texana Designs, S5317 Starburst Lace from Hero Arts, message from Deadbeat Designs
  • Paper: white
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers, Brushed Sage Distress Ink
  • Accessories: ribbon, pearls, Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist, cheese box
