Texas Tuesday meets Taylored Expressions!

Today's Texas Tuesday! And it's the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop! I don't know about you, but all of this Tues-steppin' and blog-hoppin' is making me thirsty!


Ah yes, that's MUCH better! Mmmmargaritas - another of my favorite things about Texas. We definitely love our margaritas down here. Mmm hmm. *hiccup* When I saw that cute little margarita glass and most excellent sentiment in Taylor's Chillax set, I absolutely had to own it! Wait, does that make me sound like a lush?? I don't mean for me, I mean to make cards for my mother-in-law. Yah yah, that's it. ;-) (Actually... true story: I bought this set during my MIL's last visit to Austin, but she saw it and HAD TO have it. So then I ordered it again! I have now bought this set for myself twice because I love it so much! HA!)

Today's card played along with a fabby sketch from my sweet friend Sankari:


I stamped the green & blue lime-filled "background paper" and colored it with Copics. The margarita glass is coated with Glossy Accents to make it shine, and rimmed with some Stickles "salt".

I have a whole bunch of blogs to direct you to today! First you need to check out my Texas Tuesday buddies: Mark, Geeta, Tina, Betty & Jennifer.

And next you need to hop on through the Taylored Expressions hop!! There's going to be some fabby cards, I guarantee it!

Thanks for stopping by today,


  • Stamps: Chillax from Taylored Expressions
  • Paper: Kraft note card from Hero Arts, The Paper Studio DP, white cardstock
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers
  • Accessories: Diamond Stickles (Ranger), Glossy Accents (Ranger), circle & scalloped edge punches (Stampin' Up)
