A Longhorns Christmas

I really wanted to post another A Muse Sneak Peek today but every time I scan the card I made, it scans blurry. I can't figure out how to fix it. I may resort to taking a picture with my cell phone and emailing it to myself. For now, though, I will share this Texas Longhorns Christmas card with you. My oldest son (11) is a big Longhorns fan. I don't know why. He just is. When we travelled to Mexico last November, we went through Dallas and he bought a Longhorns cap for himself. He ended up losing it somewhere but went to visit my dad this August (my dad lives in TX) and bought a new one, plus a jersey. Anyway, my friend Geeta is also a Texas Longhorns fan and she sent me this stamp. I was browsing the gallery on SCS last night and Mark at deadbeat designs, who manufactures this stamp, had uploaded a bunch of cards in his gallery (deadbeat). It inspired me to pull this out and create something with it. I grabbed my retired A Muse Santa Hat stamp and stamped, colored, cut, and mounted it to the Longhorns image. It just came together from there.

Card details: Notecard: Kona/ A Muse; Patterned Paper: Figgy Pudding 6x6/Basic Grey; Stamps: Longhorns/deadbeat designs, santa hat (retired)/A Muse, M monogram/Marah Johnson Cowboy Ransom Alphabet; 'erry' from sentiment in CTMH set Twas The Night Before Christmas
