If you're lucky enough to live in Texas...'re lucky enough! We Texans are proud of our State. Some of our most prized sights in the spring are the wildflowers along the roadsides, especially the bluebonnets. Lots of folks risk the fireants and take pictures of anyone and everyone in fields of bluebonnets. The bluebonnets have gone to seed for this year, so I decided to make a card to remind me of the lovely roadside shows they put on for us every year. This year's crop wasn't too spectacular because of a lack of rain, but we had enough little showers here and there to bring out a few. This cute stamp and sentiment come from Deadbeat Designs up in Salado TX. It was colored with Copics and white accents added using a white uni-ball gel pen. Paper is from scraps and cardstock I had on hand. Hope anyone viewing this enjoys the scenery.

Please remember our veterans and troops this Memorial Day weekend. America is the land of the free because of the brave! Give them the honor they deserve.
