It's time again for Texas Tuesday! Feel free to play along – just leave a comment or send me an email and we'll get you hooked in for the next round. We (the Texas Tuesday Team) create something inspired by this great state of ours every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month.
I have to admit… I'm thinking I'm not doing this challenge justice. Here's my problem. When most people think of Texas… they think of cowboy boots, horses, yeehaw, howdy and all that. Me. Not so much. I've been in this great state since I was 11. And when I was moving down here from Canada, one of my childhood friends asked me if I knew how to ride a horse and if I was going to ride a horse to go to school. Ah, innocence. It's something, isn't it?
Problem is I've never thought of Texas as the cowboy, boot-sootin', country place… and I grew up in a small Texas town and my brother even helped out the Debonaires for 8 years (local C/W band – do you know them?). So, what do I think of when I think of Texas. I dunno. Still working on that. Hence, why I am struggling with this challenge.
So what did I make for Texas Tuesday? Well, a card with a cowboy and a horse on it, of course. Sigh.
supplies: images and ribbon by A Muse Artstamps; cuttlebug embossing folder; signo gel pen; foam tape – card size 4 bar; paper by A Muse, Stampin' Up!, and LCI papers
There you have it. The good thing is that this challenge is making me "work" … I'll figure out what inspires me here in this great state I call home. (right now – it would be a card showing me cutting down all the BLEEPING cedar (juniper) trees in a 100 mile radius of me – it wouldn't be pretty. If you're not from here… google cedar fever texas and you'll see… awful, awful stuff).
Happy Texas Tuesday! Check out the Texas crew and see what they have to say:
