Three Cheers

This is one of the latest images from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I fell in love as soon as I saw her.  I grew up on Staten Island in New York City.  Parades were a big thing in our town.  I remember many years of sitting on the curb watching the parades go my.  My favorite part was always the horses, that is until as a teenager I actually got to march in the parades.  There is nothing worse than having to march following a bunch of horses..

The papers and everything else is from my stash.  The flags were kind of plain so I got daring and printed letters on them.  I hate writing on the fronts of cards.  I usually just don't like the way it looks.  It didn't turn out too bad this time.

Copics:  B23, C00, C0, C1, C7, E000, E00, E01, E11, E18, E21,  E97, E00, R11, R22, R27, YR12, YR14, YR20
