So I think I have been here long enough to semi-not-exactly-sort of jump on the Texas bandwagon errr should I say covered wagon? I am not in love with Texas but this wonderful spring we are having as put me in like with Texas :) Of course once the memories of cool April breezes and bountiful wildflowers have melted into 100+ degree days of bathwater warm swimming pools and fire ant infested backyards I will change my opinion back to definite dislike. Yes, I am a fickle friend that way but hey there's a lot of Texas lovers out there to compensate for my fair weather ways.
On to the cards....
I utilized a lot of flowersoft for these cards. It's a really fun medium. I have had 2 pots for a year and never really used them other than trying them out the first day I got them. I added 3 pots of the new ultra fine flowersoft 2 months ago and still didn't use any. The wildflowers inspired me to pull these little gems out of my stash and use them.
I paired the flowersoft with Deadbeat design stamps (3 bluebonnets), Accucut dies, some horse stamps and a few embellishments here and there.
The horse and bluebonnets:
Paper: Bazzil (Kraft, Red, Navy)
Stamps: Inkadinkado (horses) Deadbeat Designs (bluebonnets)
Other: Whale punches (scalloped photo corner) Accucut (scalloped card) Flowersoft (Delphinium blue) Colored Pencils
Bluebonnet Trio (I've made a card similar to this before)
Paper: Bazzil (kraft and the violet)
Stamps: Deadbeat Designs (bluebonnet)
Other: Creative Impressions (ribbon)
Paper: Bazzil (kraft, red, navy, white)
Dies: Accucut (Texas) Sizzix (rustic stars)
Stamps: Deadbeat Designs (bluebonnets)
Other: Flower Soft (Delphinium blue)

The small horse card: For some reason flickr does not like my file and I'm too lazy (not knowledgeable enough) to figure out why.

Other: Creative impressions (ribbon) Colored pencils
All five of these cards will be offered in a class at Felicia's Scrapbooks soon (end of May or beginning of June). Check their website or blog for class details.
