Merry Texmas!

After my trip to Archivers this past weekend, I was in quite the stamping mood so I surfed on over to Splitcoaststampers, where a VSN (Virtual Stamp Night) was underway! During VSN, oodles of fabby stampers host different challenges. A new challenge goes live every hour, and you have to complete your project from start to finish in 45 minutes. Yep, that's right - 45 MINUTES!! It's pure madness, and so much fun! When I saw DebDeb's challenge at 4pm on Saturday - to use an "alternative" image that works for a Christmas card in the south - I thought right away of one of my favorite stamps from Texana Designs - this fun Merry Texmas cactus Snowglobe!!

I want to get back in the habit of posting Texas Tuesday cards, so this is perfect timing! The card is pretty straight forward - just added a bit of Picket Fence Distress Stickles for a touch of snow in my snowglobe. I'm just happy it came together in 45 mintues. I decided to add the stitching with about three minutes to go, LOL!!

Thank for stopping by, and Merry Christmas, y'all! ;-)

  • Stamps: Snowglobe from Texana Designs
  • Paper: Hero Arts Kraft & Pine, GP white, DCWV Christmas matstack (plaid)
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers
  • Other: Crimping tool, May Arts ribbon, American Crafts twine, Ranger Distress Stickles, stitching
