The Lawn Ranger

I can't believe it's been over a week since I posted a card on here - think that must be the longest break I've had since my blog started!  Card production was down so much I didn't even have challenges to check over the weekend to see if any of my cards got a mention.

The break was down to the good weather, gardening and the boys being around.

The last couple of days have been cooler again and all bedding plants are now in so I thought I'd make a card tonight for a treat.

I do so love Art Impression stamps at the moment - I bought a few a while back and this is the first one I have to show.  He's called The Lawn Ranger and is just perfect for my neighbour - who drives a sit on mower, once even into his lake! Oopsie - he said the bank gave way!

The card is a simple design, text computer generated then the grass made using my Die-namics die - with a bit cut off where the mower has been.  Finally I popped a couple of brads onto the wheels to be the axils and that's about it.



Challenges;
Art Impressions - Use brads/eyelets
Allsorts - In the garden
Cards For Men - Boys will be boys - why use a push more when you can drive a machine!
Papertake - Anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - Male card
