Pony Express-Challenge #65@TSC

Hello friends, today I'm sharing the card I made for challenge #65 at Tammy's Scrapin' Corner.
This week's theme is Texture.
Our sponsor this week is QRK Designs.
I've chosen a digi called Pony Express.
The texture I added to my card is Pop dots, Metal, Baker's twine, and glitter
The paper is from a 6x6 glitter paper pack by Best Creations Ink called Cowboy Up.
As soon as I saw this image I knew I wanted to use it on a card for friend's of ours, Kevin, and Cheryl, who we met on the first High Seas Rally Cruise we went on four years ago.
We were fortunate to meet up with them and other HSR friends last Spring on a regular cruise. They are from Georgia and are very dear to our hearts.
Kevin has had a long career with the US Postal Service and finally retired this year. His friends call him Mailman. His wife Cheryl also works for the US Postal service. Her friends call her Mailbox. Too fun! They both ride their own bikes.
Have you seen the Ikea Raskog cart yet?
There was a huge thread about it on Two Peas In A Bucket. I've been a Pea for over 11 years and know that if the Peas love something that chances are I will love it too. They are great enablers!
And they were right when they said this cart is awesome for scrapbooking. It really holds a lot!
I love the color too.
Since I scrap at the dining room table but have all my supplies in my scraproom, I  and need to carry my supplies back and forth from room to room. This cart is just ideal for me.! I see another one in my future very soon. I painted the milk can that's in the picture about 16 years ago when I used to paint.
Thanks for the visit...have a wonderful first week of June.
