She thinks my tractor's sexy...

I guess that got the attention of some of you, LOL! It is the only thing I could think of for the "inspired by a song" challenge I'm entering this week.

I made this for a friend that has had a rough year, healthwise. He had part of a lung removed last week, a few months before that he had back surgery, and before that he had cancer. And if he's not been sick, his sweet wife has had some kind of surgery. She suffers with Chrones Disease, as well as, other issues. He has always wanted a Farmall Cub tractor. This isn't a cub, but it's the closest I could get. I gave his wife one of the cards I did earlier in the year, since she's the care-giver at this time. (I know that the care-giver does much and doesn't always take care of themselves.)

I colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. Unfortunately I can't remember who made the image. (Once I find it, I will post the name.) The papers are from my stash. I used black raffia lace, and printed a calendar template that I downloaded off the internet.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Sentimental Sundays - inspired by a song

Wood Ware USA - sketch

The Crafty Pad - anything

AI Factory Challenges - anything

Crafty Ann's Challenge - anything

Allsorts Challenge - anything

Crafty Sentiments - anything

CES Challenges - anything

One Stitch At A Time - anything

Thank you for stopping by this year and leaving the wonderful and encouraging comments.

Good one, Debbie! Of course, I'm an awful one for getting songs stuck in my head so thanks alot! Ask Stacey, I even get her cell phone jingle stuck in my head.
Anyway, back to the card! You did a great job and he'll LOVE it! I think the calendar idea is awesome too.
Thanks for joining us at SS!

Hi dj and welcome to Crafty Ann's. This is a fabulous project and I'm sure your friend will love it. Thank you for your lovely comment about the DT's cards too. I think I'd better let you know that the link you left isn't working just in case the same thing has happened at any of the other challenges you've entered too. I found you by following back from the comment you left. I hope we'll see you for our next one too.
