For the men... have no idea how difficult it is to make a masculine card! And then...sometimes it all falls into place...that is what I will call this latest card...uber masculine...and it came together without stress. I came across this challenge while blog hopping...I don't even know for sure what blog I jumped from to the Three Clovers Design blog...but once I got there...I said..AHA...gotta try that sketch out! I was trying to figure out a way to use some stamps that I hadn't used before...and this tractor I've been in love with for a seriously long time! But...I haven't really found exactly what I need to use it for! So for this sketch I was like needs a slightly larger image...bring on the tractor! Thankfully I had some fantastic paper to use that had some great "masculine" colors! Then...once I saw the sentiment that was in the same set as the tractor...I was like...that's got my FIL ALL OVER IT! He's a farmer at heart...and let me tell you...we love to have his corn on the table year round if possible! DH isn't so sure about the flowers...but of all the options I could think of...this was the best bet!
