Going Postal: Index Card Art

"You've
Got
Mail"
 
~1998 American
directed by Nora Ephron,
starring
Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan,
based on
the trademark
greeting
AOL users
hear when
they receive
a new email

The definition of "going postal" is:
 'a hostile attack by a postal  worker'.

 My definition of "going postal":
'place postage stamps on art not an envelope'!

So,
 you've got mail:
 
My
"Audrey Hepburn"
 

 {Materials used}
An Audrey Hepburn postage stamp
and a magazine cut out female body
were placed over
my painted paper background
on an index card.
 
My
index card art
 "Travel Teddy Bear"
 
A teddy bear stamp was inserted into
magazine cut out of a lady's purse
as though they're going somewhere.
A teddy bear picnic perhaps?
 
 
My
index card art
"Field of Flags"
 
American flag stamps were laid out in a diagonal pattern.
 
~Cheryl Gee gets actual letters with stamps on them.  She saves the stamps and the letters too.
