It’s Texas Tuesday!

It's Texas Tuesday again! Create something inspired by something to do with Texas… I live pretty close to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.  It's such a beautiful place to visit. And Lady Bird did so much to make our state a pretty place. When I saw this stamp down at Stamp Antonio, I knew I had to get it.

Here's my card and my color palette is pink and gray. Two of my not-used-very-often colors!

Have a Groovy Day!

I'm working on a slideshow for my son's school for tomorrow night. It's our 2nd movie night! It's my favorite of all of the events the PTA puts on… no shocker there, eh, given that I'm an absolute nut about movies 🙂 Last year, right before the movie started, I put up a slideshow of the teacher's baby pictures. That was fun! This year, the slideshow will be pictures of the kids at different events this year. It's a last minute thing… 'cause there is nothing like stress to get you to move your tail! 🙂

Anyway, as I was looking for pictures on my computer, I realized I have several creations that I haven't blogged and I thought I should start doing that again!

Here's a card that we made at a recent A Muse birthday card class I taught:

DSC_1435 copy (Small) Lime green, popsicle pink, and papaya yellow! Yes, very bright. Yes, very not me colors. But fun anyway, right?

When designing this card,  I realized I hadn't ever used my Love Bus stamp! It's actually quite sparkly in person thanks to some Spica pens.

In any case, have a groovy day!

A Muse PJ Party – Some Kind of Wonderful

LAST CHALLENGE of the night! WOW… fastest 2 hours of your life! Or mine. 🙂

Hostess: ME 🙂

Movie: Some Kind of Wonderful

Challenge: Create a card that sparkles (use glitter, stickles, whatever… just make sure it sparkles… if you put Edward on your card without a shirt in the sunlight, I'll let you slide! 🙂 )

So, remember this movie? I recently saw it on the big screen at Girlie Night at the Alamo Drafthouse here in Austin with some of my best movie buddies… Remember how at the end Watts gets the diamond stud earrings… yeah, that's where this challenge comes from. Ah, such a cute movie… I digress…

Here's my card…
