Texas Tuesday - missing my bluebonnets!

Last night my friend Christina, who lives in Austin, sent me an email that said, simply: "Bluebonnets!!!! That's all. First of the season." Sigh. I miss Christina, and I miss my bluebonnets! This is my first spring away from Texas after living there for 16 years. Christina understands how joyous it always is to see the first sweet little blue blooms popping up along the road. Back in the day we'd text (page, actually - wayyy back in the day!) whenever one of us spotted the first bluebonnet of the year. Her email last night made me smile big time, even if it also made me a little sad to be missing her and to be missing Texas in the spring.

All I can do this year is share a bluebonnet card.

I adore this Jam'n Frame with Bluebonnet stamp that Joyce Meyer drew for Texana Designs. I stamped it on the polka dot cardstock, and then stamped again & paper pieced the flower and leaves with textured cardstock.

I was going to add last year's photo of the kids in the bluebonnets to this post but I just realized we never took one. During our very last spring in Texas. We were probably too busy geting the house ready to sell. I think I may cry now.

  • Stamps: Jam'n Frame with Bluebonnet, Everythin' is comin' up Bluebonnets from Texas Designs
  • Paper: Bazzill cardstock, Recollections cardstock (kraft)
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Other: Marvy punches, American Crafts twine


  1. Very pretty card Libby! Love the blue and green with the kraft. Great stamps too!

  2. I've experienced Texas bluebonnets once, and they were amazing! Would love to do it again. Your card is lovely, Libby!

  3. There were barely any bluebonnets last year. That's probably why you never took one, though I thought you did...Hmmm...

  4. Awwww ... And dang-it! I want all these TX stamps! *stomps foot* :D

  5. OH! This is just too cute--love the bluebonnets and I LOVE your barbed wire frame! HUGS to you:)


I always enjoy your comments - thanks so much for taking the time to leave one!
