We know we belong to the land!!

As soon as I saw this fab image by Kenny K I thought of the musical Oklahoma! I don't know whether you have seen it but she looks like she just walked out of it ..  
It just happens that this is the show me and my husband have just started rehearsing for with a local am dram group, so it fits quite well me thinks!

She is called 'Farmers Daughter' and isn't she a belle! And of course I coloured her with my ProMarkers ..

The papers I have used are Kanban gingham cardstock and First Edition New Leaf papers. I have distressed the edges of the white card and the gingham with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and matts are created using Core'dinations. The swirls are Sizzlits dies from Sizzix and the corner is from the Parisian Accents die set from Spellbinders. The sentiment is from the new LOTV range and is cut out using my circle Sizzix dies. All finished off with some copper gems!

There is a chorus from one of the songs from Oklahoma, which is called 'The Farmer and the Cowman' which goes ..
Territory folks should stick together,
Territory folks should all be pals.
Cowboys dance with farmer's daughters,
Farmers dance with the ranchers' gals.

Couldn't be more perfect!

Happy Crafting!

  10. PS - my fave tune from this musical is 'caint say no!'..... loved it since my mum made me watch it as a kid! :D


  11. Hi Laura, you'll have to forgive me for not popping over more often as your blog has disappeared off my dashboard! Blogger keeps doing this to me and I've no idea why - I do hope you re-appear soon as I'm missing all your fabulous cards!

    I had to comment on this one, not only because it is a great image and a perfect card - but because Oklahoma is one of my favourite musicals (along with many other Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals). I'm with Alison above that I love 'cain't say no' but then I also love 'The Surrey with a fringe on Top', 'Oh what a beautiful morning', ok OK - all of 'em are my favs!!!!

    Hope you are having a great long weekend.
