10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More Bluebonnets - KSS

With only a few more weeks left of Texas bluebonnets lining the highways and country roads of our grand state, I knew I wanted to feature them in this week's 10 Minutes and 10 Minutes More designs sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps. They bring such beauty to our state each spring, and we hate to see them go.

The stamp sets used for these designs were Multi Step Bluebonnets, 3 Step Hydrangea, and Words of Comfort & Joy by Kitchen Sink Stamps.

  1. These are both beauties! On the first card, that sponging and speckling really sets the blue bonnet off so nicely and the black mat on the second one makes your image just pop off the page!
