We're back from our hols!
More of that another time but for now I'll just say
that we had a wonderful time.
Back home, life went on and it was time for another
Postman's Knock postcard swap.
The theme I had this time was
and was for Jill.
I clearly had our cruise in mind when making this card!
Thankfully, in reality the sun shone, the skies were blue and
we had a balcony not a tiny porthole.
I popped it in a Mail Art envelope.
Sue made me a postcard
with my chosen theme of
'Yee Ha! Ride 'em Cowboy!'
I initially thought the cowboy was Roy Rogers but
it turns out he is, in fact, Clayton Moore.
Anyway, whoever he is, he is a transfer on acetate
which is then layered onto the background,
which is another transfer.
This gives a great 3D effect which isn't very apparent in the scan.
Thank you, Sue!
Reading Hi Ho Silver on the label brought to mind
the song by Quantum Jump (from the 1970's)
and I've been singing it all morning!
When this was in the charts I was going out with
a lad who could sing it all, even the fast bit, without looking at the words.
For this reason alone I thought he was very cool.
I was easily impressed when I was 14 years old!
