My dad and my son, Tim, are tractor fanatics. My dad has had a Farmall tractor for as long as I can remember. Tim started out as a John Deere fan, but has come to the right side of the tracks and wants nothing but a Farmall. The caption is from a t-shirt Tim got as a present last year. This birthday card was for my dad who turned 82 this past Sunday and still drives his Farmall whenever he can. I think he somewhat looks forward to snow so he can plow with the tractor.
Penny Black came out with this stamp set last year, I believe. It was a must have for me! It's called "Life is Simpler", which I colored with pencils. The die cut tree is from Impression Obsession (IO die 0006-V), which I cut out from a piece of Stampin' Up's "Basic Grey" card stock. I water colored the sky and grass on water color paper with Distress Inks in "Broken China" and "Peeled Paint". I fussy cut out the tractor and popped it up. My dad sure did agree with the sentiment.
Thank you for stopping by, I sure love it when you do.
