Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday # 28

Fantabulous Cricut is having a challenge about harvest time. So you need to create a project having to do with gardening ( plants, gardening tools, vegetables, etc.) Well this challenge is almost perfect for me. My husband and I live on his Grandparents farm. Don't mistake me for that Great Farmers wife... I am not. He does this mainly as a hobby. Anyway my husband and our 5 year old son, he just turned 5 a few days ago, spend hours, I MEAN hours on tractors. They love to mow, plow and as of this year plant corn and soy beans! Yes, their new adventure! So when I look out my kitchen window I just see the corn they planted! They are so proud of it! Lol. Again, I am not that good farmers wife... suburban girl here! SO  I made this card for my son's birthday because of him and his Dad's love for their corn and for the love of their John Deere Tractors. If I might point out I did not put in the weeds that grew in between the corn stalks, out of respect for them, iI just added the grass leading up to the corn field! Lol. I did put on  2 black Crows  and left out the deer who did eat some of their corn! They did an awesome job! Sorry for the story but I do hope you enjoy the card!

I used Country Life and I can't remember where I got the grass. I  did alter the tractor because there was a girl driving it. If I would have left her on they might have thought there was hope of me driving a tractor... NOT going to happen! LOL. I was inspired by a awesome DT by the name of Samantha.
