Honoring texasgrammy!

In my stamping lifetime, it has been an honor and privilege of mine to have the opportunity to meet and stamp with a number of Splitcoaststampers' Dirty Girls. It was probably about ten years ago by now that I traveled with friends to a north Texas Splitcoaststampers' gathering in Arlington when I met Bev, aka texasgrammy. She was so kind and lots of fun to talk stamping with.  I still remember the card she created for the swap. It had some cute SU handbags and bling!

Today I get the honor of casing a card from her amazing SCS gallery to honor her at Queen for the Day!
Congratulations, Bev, on this well deserved honor! The card I have chosen is this fun Christmas Thank You design. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration, Bev.

I cut my own light socket from an old stamp I no longer use to stamp over the end of the KSS light bulb so that I could create a string of lights. I connected the lights using a Copic marker.

Stamps: Multi Step Ornament & Stars, Multi Step Build a Garland, Simple
Sentiments, and 1/2 Pint Alphabet by Kitchen Sink Stamps
hand-cut socket
Paper: Pure Luxury White by Gina K. Designs
Inks: Memento Lady Bug, Rhubarb Stalk, and Northern Pine, Copic Marker
Embellishment: Silver Gelly Roll Pen
