Patriotic Horse

Yeeha! Get your boots on and come on down to celebrate with us today! This week I'm releasing four new Little Miss Muffet Stamps and today you can see two of them at Little Miss Muffet Challenges. I'm showing off Patriotic Horse and gave this little wrangler a Texas theme. ;D Of course, the flag can be customized for any occasion!

July is coming up which is when we see a lot of fireworks in our area as we celebrate our country. It was always ironic to me to use fireworks on such an occasion but the bright colorful explosions are a crowd pleaser and always something to enjoy! So among all the other Snugly Giftables... this one is perfect to fill in the slot for July.

I have two more months on the drawing board which means I'm only a couple more images away from a full set - 12 months of Snugly Giftables! You'll soon see a monkey, turtle and of course a cat for October. ;D I've enjoyed using these for kid's birthday cards and even a few for Father's Day too. Hope you like this one and signing off with a big Texas accent... "Y'all come back now ya hear!"

Did you know? The Texas Flag Code states that single (lone) star "represents ALL of Texas and stands for our unity as one for God, State, and Country." The three colors of the Texas flag are red, white and blue - blue stands for loyalty, white for purity, and red for bravery. In addition, the flag and gave rise to the state's official nickname "The Lone Star State." The pledge of allegiance to the state flag is as follows: "Honor the Texas flag; I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas, one state under God, one and indivisible."
