Texas Tuesday featuring Deadbeat Designs!

Hey Y'all! It's the first Tuesday of the month so you know what that means - time for a little Texas Tues-steppin' with some of my fellow cowpokes! This week I have something special to share. If you've been following along, you know that Mark from Deadbeat Designs is part of our little Texas Tuesday team. Well, for this week's post he was kind enough to provide one of his brand spankin' new stamps to all of us to play with! Yeehaw!!

The new stamp is that gorgeous Texas Our Texas collage on the left. I paper pieced it, first stamping it on some old light blue polka dot paper from my massive stash, and then again on kraft. The star is colored in with a white gel pen. Then I decided I simply needed to add more Deadbeat goodness to my card! The red panel is patterned paper that I stamped with Mark's Bandana Flower, and the sentiment is called Big and Bright. Mark has a really excellent selection of Texas-themed stamps (and lots of other fun stuff too!), so all you fellow Texans, cowboy junkies and even you lonestar wannabes really need to check out Deadbeat Designs! ;-)

Now be sure to check out what my fellow Texas Tuesday buddies did with this wonderful Texas-y stamp: Jennifer, Tina, Betty, Geeta, Linda, Shannan and of course Mark himself! (ETA: Mark is giving away a Texas Our Texas stamp to one lucky commenter, so make sure and leave him some love over there!!)

And until we meet again...
