Nothing Runs Like a Deere

For those of you who may not be aware of such things, I live near the John Deere Headquarters. It is not an understatement to say there is a lot of interest in green tractors and other green implements in my community.

Nothing Runs Like a Deere!

It's not unusual to find John Deere items at yard sales here, but it is unusual to find them at a reasonable price. Therefore I was suprised last summer when I found this TREASURE:

2009 John Deere Calendar

Cost: 10 cents

I was certain this would be useful in a treasure hunt creation. Here is what I made:

This is a very simple card. I used one of the fun pictures from the calendar for the main part of the card. I punched out a circle and some little strips to create a sun. I added a sentiment (it's an A Muse stamp!!!) and a piece of ribbon for a simple embellishment.

Have a sun-sational day!

Sentiment: A Muse Sunsational Day

Ink: Memento Cottage Ivy

Cardstock: Stampin' UP! Black and Garden Green and scraps from my scrap file

Treasure: image from a 2009 John Deere Calendar

Embellishment: Stampin' UP! Maize Grosgrain Ribbon

Great Card--though I am all for red tractors--Farmall through and through as we had three on the farm when I was growing up. Love the way you added the sun.
