I love the boots! I gave them a little Glossy Accents shine, as well as some Stickles shimmer on the tree:
The sketch is more or less the latest Mojo Monday, and the colors were inspired by last week's Color Throwdown (why can't I ever play this challenge on time anymore??):
For my second card, I thought I'd *attempt* to be creative with my stamps. I loved this Texas Christmas tree card that Mark made last year, but sadly never got around to getting the stamps I need to recreate it. So I stared at my Texas-themed stamp stash trying to find something to use for a holiday card, when I saw my Deadbeat Designs bluebonnet stamp...
What do you think, can it pass for a wreath? I inked up the stamp repeatedly with a marker, so I could color the leaves green and the flower portion red. It was hard to space it perfectly, but I sorta like how it finally came out. I added a little Stickles to this one, too - I happen to think that Christmas cards REQUIRE a little shimmer and shine!
Before I go, I thought I'd share this little Christmas ballad that my dad used to sing to me when I was a kid. Ahhh, the memories. Isn't it sweet?
Now make sure and head on over to the sidebar and check out what my Texas Tuesday buddies are up to! Betty and Geeta are sitting out this time, but the rest have Texas-y goodness on their blogs!
