First, let me wish all of you a belated Happy Valentine's Day. I've been concentrating on Valentine's cards lately because I am donating them to a fraternal organization that I belong to for a fund-raising project. It was a bit difficult to switch gears and think of Texas Tuesday, but here's my post for this week.
I wanted to come up with a card that would be suitable for a male or female coworker who is retiring or leaving work. I also wanted something simple and quick to make. I had some Texas map paper in my stash, so I used that for a mat on a craft cardstock base. I should have thought a bit more before I cut the mat because I wanted Austin in the picture, but alas all I got was that big old San Antonio. Actually, with our lack of freeways, Austin looks pretty puny on the map compared to San Antonio anyway so maybe this is a good thing after all. I used the same craft cardstock to stamp the horse and rider and then stamped "Happy Trails" beneath that. I trimmed it down, then I rounded the four corners and stuck it in the middle. I intended to give it some bling to the horse and rider and the sentiment with my black Spica pen, but I couldn't find it. That can always be added later if I ever find that darned pen. So there you have it - a quick and simple card with a Texas theme. Hope you like it. Thanks for visiting my blog.
