Down on the Farm

Morning everyone :)

The sun is shining so I'm happy :) I have my niece today for the day, we're going for a stroll round town, taking in the sweet shop, toy shop, cinema and somewhere for dinner, so should be fun :)

I made this card for my dad, it's his 60th birthday in August, we're having a big party for him, I can't wait! He's a retired farmer, so when I saw this digi on Just Inklined, I had to have it :)

The image is from Just Inklined, the pearls and jute are from Ribbon Girl, the papers are Nitwits and Forever Friends, and the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.

A closeup of this gorgeous image! I coloured it with Promarkers and put Glossy Accents on the red part of the tractor :)

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

I'm also entering this into Brenda's Poppy Challenge on her blog, she took some lovely photos of poppies in the fields in her area and has a candy challenge based on that :) Such a beautiful idea! Here's her post with the photos, they're so idyllic.

Thanks for looking :)

  2. Hello Tanya,

    That sounds like the perfect afternoon out especially the sweetshop.

    Love your bright red tractor, think it must be Massey Ferguson. As it's red you could enter into my puppy challenge, doesn't have to have a poppy just the colour red is great.

    Have a great weekend and really hope sun shines.
