Giddy Up!

Well for once I was first out the gate with monthly Mail Art. Our theme for August is Cowgirls (or Cowboy Girls depending how you Google).

I loved the image of this young lady (Leslie thinks she is getting ready to beat the tar out of someone, LOL) and the Dale Evans quote. I used scrapbooking paper, star punch, and lots of inking for the different effects.

On the back I scanned an old postcard I had - liked the font. Had a lot of fun at the post office - a friendly postie was very impressed - and very helpful. Next month is Poetry in Motion (can you guess what song that comes from?) - there are so many poems I can think of but pretty sure I've settled on the one I will use. Enjoy. Jewels

  2. That cowgirl sure looks like she's got some attitude! Great Mail Art, the stitching and the stars look super. I'm sitting here singing "Poetry in Motion' to myself, but can't remember who it is by.........:o(
