One for the guys




Time for another challenge at Allsorts and this week my great teamie Sarah wants us to create something 'For Men Only'.

This is one I made for one of the girls boyfriends who is a farmers son and loves his tractors both old and new so this old Massey Ferguson from Stamp Addicts fitted the bill perfectly. These are the tractors I grew up with, now they're more like mobile homes on wheels complete with air conditioning of stereo systems.

I masked an oval on a piece of gloss card stock, brayered with Adirondack inks, stamped the images with black archival and added a little colour to the tractor and trees.


In case you didn't know, we have a DT call going at Allsorts so if you think you might like to join us please do pop over to the blog to see what you have to do to apply.

Whatever you are up to I hope you have a good weekend and as always many thanks for dropping by.

I love the way you picked out the red in the tractor for the matting & kept the base card white. The little raffia 'adornment' keeps the card masculine & countryfied, a lovely touch that.

This is excellent for your theme Brenda! Ideal for a male card, that image will be popular for a lot of males. Good luck with your Dt call at Allsorts, to be honest I am not sure which Challenges i have entered there so it would be unfair for me to enter. Brrrr it has been so cold again here today, but lovely to see a little sunshine. Judy x

Great male card Brenda. That's the kind of tractor I remember too. My uncles had two MFs but they were both grey. Later on they had a more modern red one but it still didn't have a cab! My oldest uncle once said they needed me help out by driving at hay time. He didn't mention that there was also a trailer involved and an elevator carrying bales to the trailer. My aunts nearly had kittens when they found out! I have a pic of Oliver sitting on a tractor that's in the local park. He has a huge smile on his face, he loves wheels.

Take care,

Kat xx

Ahhhhhh, you are bringing back memories for me. My Dad always bought Massey Ferguson tractors...and lovingly held them together over the years.
He raised horses and drove his beloved tractor well into his 80"s. After a few mishaps over the bank and then finally overturning the tractor, he was banned to the golf cart till he was 90! He would use the golf cart to take the horses some flakes of hay for the midday feed!
In his 60's and 70's, he fashioned a snowplow blade on the front of his tractor and plowed his own drive and the drives of all his neighbours! I think he only stopped plowing for everyone when he was around 80 something.
Great card and thanks for the fab memories!
