And this ain't no place for the weary kind
This ain't no place to lose your mind
This ain't no place to fall behind
Pick up your crazy heart and give it one more try
– song by Ryan Bingham and T-Bone Burnett
One peek at this card and you can see why it call it my "Crazy Heart" card. 'It's crazy busy! Well, that, and I do love that movie with Jeff Bridges and Maggie Gyllenhaal.
Now who in their crazy mind would combine tulle and frilly swirls with a barbed wire heart? Well, darlin's if you've ever been to a Texas rodeo (and everyone should at least once), you'll see women's western wear is a combination of denim and rhinestones; leather and lace. It's rough and rowdy meets powder puff and pearls. I love it. I can't quite carry it off myself; I look more like the rodeo clown. I wish I could, though, because I think it's crazy sexy.
You know I love all things Texas, if only because I get to bring out my Texas twang vernacular. So I'm crazy-heart excited that my sweet friend Jimmye Sue Mitchell of Texana Designs fame invited me to be a part of her inaugural design team! Yee Haw!! I get to hang out with gal pals Libby Hickson, Karen Hall Lambert, Jilda Bolton, Janet Bradshaw, and Joyce Meyer. And today I have my first "official" design team card for you using two Texana Design stamps.
Oh, and this rodeo is just getting started. Come back tomorrow for another Texana Designs announcement (you'll be glad you did). Be sure to head over to the Texana Blog and become a follower! And if you really want to be the queen of the rodeo, go ahead and "LIKE" the Texana Facebook page! I'll see you there.
