Old MacDonald had a farm...




Isn't this just the cutest li'l fella you ever saw? {What?? I live in Wales ~ I like farmers, OK?}
I'd actually been searching for the *perfect* tractor stamp for a while {the little Horror's more than a bit obsessed with tractors}, so I nearly wet myself with excitement when I saw this one from Stamposaurus {as an added bonus I've found out that Jayne from Stamposaurus is absolutely lovely}.

So anyways... I am actually blogging this nonsense cos this is my CCT card for this week. Soft Furnishings is the challenge - I've used twill {big fave!} & a bit of embroidery floss through the button. The rest of the DT really have outshone themselves this week ~ you can see the full details of the challenge here, along with all the DT fabbiness :)

ooh I love!!! You do have the nack of using the most natural things and making them rather fabby actually darl xxx The twill and buttons are gorge xxxx

And I'm half Welsh and I like tractors and rural things to. Well actually I am not certain of the correct percentage cos my dad was 100% Welsh and my mum was a bit. Not sure how much, but I do know it was very diluted. So maybe I am 62.759854978 %

Anyway, this is fabulous, or as you would say, fablass. Ohh I soooo love your accent - way nicer than my crap hybrid scouse, Chester, Lancashire non descript boring one. Calm down calm down, ey up lad!!!! See, like the drugs, it just dont work lol xxxx

Ohh and I meant to say that I just love your new blog header - what gorge lil cuties they are xxx. Maybe it isnt that new but I only just noticed - dippy moose that I am xxxxxx

There's nothing wrong with farmers, I grew up on a farm, my own tribe now lives in a village out in the sticks still surrounded by fields & farms.... so do you think I qualify as a proper country bumpkin?
The card is brilliant, rustic, but still got that cute factor.

Brilliant card Leann, as grandma of 5 boys (should be 6 by Sunday), this stamp would be an absolute godsend, (have 3 little red tractor fans, so will pop over and have a look.). I digress your colouring is fantastic and love your take on the challenge. Great Colours.

Brilliant Leann!!! Love the motive and your layout. A fab card :)

Marcel Frei said...

I have to agree. That IS the cutest tractor image. I guess our older little horror would adore it.
