Own Up, Who Remembers The Wurzels?

Oi've got a brand new comboine 'arvester ........ sing along now!  Well, as many of you know, it was my darlin' daddy's birthday at the weekend and I always try and make him a card that will raise a smile so when I saw this stamp I just knew it was the right one.

Dad worked as a farm hand, and then for a large chain of garden centres in their horticultural unit (mainly driving a tractor) for forty plus years, until he retired 13 years ago.  He and mum live in the countryside and love their garden and dad still, at the age of 78, digs it all by hand.  So, you could say he is a farm boy at heart.

Mum said that if he ever dared to grow a 'tache like this one she would shave it off in the night!

Ingredients for this card are:
Stamped Image  High Hopes - Farmer Clem
Medium  Tim Holtz Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers  Basic Grey
Sentiment  LOTV
Extras  White cardstock edged with Poppy ProMarker, Pebbles Inc Candy Dots

And I would like to enter this into the challenge for

Ooh, just noticed how close it is getting to that magic 100,000 hits - four and a half weeks to my 3rd blogoversary so it looks as if it will have to be a good candy or two to celebrate properly!

And a big, warm, squirrelly welcome to my new Followers this week - thank you so much, it means a lot to know you enjoyed your visit enough to want to come back!

Hugs, Sxx

What a cute farmer! Great papers. Along with the farm theme the one paper makes me think of crop circles. Hopefully your Pop doesn't have those in his garden! I looked up yesterday's stamp and... well, let's just say that I had to slowly back away from the website. I did put a note on my calendar for next payday to visit them again though. *sigh* I need to clone myself so the clone can work and earn money while I play. I should clone a big fat pile of money too.

Sadly I do Squirrel, I have vague recollectings of hearing it sung around the house and it driving me to distraction as they (my Mum I think) insited un using the country bumpkin accent.

A great card however.
