And here's the inspiration photo:
Usually she's in princess dresses or tutus, so it was lots of fun to see her take a break from those and put on this cute little Jessie costume! I bought it on mega-clearance the week after Halloween - one of my brighter ideas, I have to say. I got the kids a bunch of Toy Story & superhero dress-up clothes that week, for very little money!
I had also been itchin' to make a Texas Tuesday card using this new little cowgirl stamp from Hero Arts. I totally squealed when I saw her in the new catalog. I just knew Hero Arts created her **JUST FOR ME**, for my Texas Tuesday posts. HAHAHA! (a girl can daydream, right!?)
I am often drawn to using hemp twine on my Texas-y cards, and tonight I thought it would be fun to try to shape some into little rolled flowers. I think they turned out rather fun!
I had a couple blog challenges in mind as I made this card. First, the Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge, which had the theme this week of "Live Laugh Love". I think this post fits, because I was inspired by a photo of my sweet girl living her little 3 year old life, she makes me laugh almost everyday and I love her and her brother more than anything on the planet. :-)
I also took inspiration from Card Positioning Systems #205, turned on it's side. Have you been to that blog this week? It's anniversary time so they've shared a ton of fabby cards!
I want to give a little shout-out to my Texas Tuesday friends before I go - make sure and check out their blogs if you like Texas-themed stampy goodness! The links are over on my sidebar.
