Texana Designs Blog Hop!!

Today is an exciting day!! The Texana Designs team is hosting our very first blog hop! Yay!!
I wanted to make something that really screamed "Texas"! Texana Designs carries many stamps that are not specifically Texas-themed, but since a piece of my heart is still in central Texas, those are the stamps I love most of all! This card features TX018 Boot and TX014 Somebody in Texas Loves Ya!. I colored the boot with my Copics, and the patterned paper is from a great Texas-themed 6x6 pad - Giddy Up! from Carta Bella. The little stars are Studio Calico wood veneers.

My card is based on this sketch, created by teammate Karen Lambert for our hop! Thanks Karen!

You're going to want to hop along and visit all of the blogs - if you comment on them all, you'll have a chance at winning all of the cards featured during the hop. Fun!! Here's the hop list:

And before I go, I just want to share a couple photos. Back in January I was able to take a little solo trip back to Austin. If you don't know, I moved to Georgia from Austin about 2.5 years ago. Family, friends and Austin itself - I miss them all lots. And also in the Austin area is my wonderful Texana Designs family!! I had done a couple playdates via Google Hangout with them, but I had never been able to be in the same room with the entire team! It was so much fun!! I'm so thankful I was able to do see them, they are the nicest and most supportive group of ladies. We even posed for a photo.

And this is me with the owner of Texana Designs, my friend Jimmye Sue Mitchell. She is one of the sweetest ladies in the stamp industry!! I am so very fortunate to be a small part of her team.

Thanks for stopping by today,


  1. Great card Libby! Hot today, hot tomorrow but Sunday brings back the winter. I got my electric bill today. OMW! It's not normally this high except in the summer. Hopefully, with a hard winter like we've had, Mother Nature will take it easy on us with the heat this summer. Love your cute card!

  2. Love that boot, Libby, and the way you have used the sentiment. Nice to see some photos of you too :-)

  3. That boot is one of my all-time fav stamps! Love your card.
