USA ~ Texas - map ~

...I really love map cards like this..."The Lone Star State" comes from the symbolism of the star on the 1836 flag of the republic, the "National Standard of Texas." The single golden star on a blue background signified Texas as an independent republic and was a reminder of the state's struggle for independence from Mexico.
Thanks a lot Judy!!

 I like especially the "Johnny Cash" stamp!
