This is for Michelle's "Find Your Happy Place" challenge for the Hope You Can Cling To card drive.
I immediately thought about sponging a sunset, but changed my mind when I thought of the place that makes me the happiest. Our friend's property up the river. We spent almost every weekend up there camping this summer (and every year for the last dozen years). We love it! When we start passing the farms, tractors and the giant marshmallows in the fields, I know we're getting close.
Please visit my blog for more pics, details and to see the inside of this card:

THis is a gorgeous card with the coloring of the tractor and the designer papers!! I thought you were going to say that your favorite time is being on a tractor. I'm always looking for a cool tractor stamp to make my dad cards.

Great coloring and perfect dp for your bg. We lived in VA near the ocean for years but I grew up in the midwest with grandparents who farmed in Iowa. So, coming home meant black dirt and farms and flatness. Once when I was driving with my 6 children we started seeing the farms and I said something like "Look guys its starting to look like home. And they all just stared blankly at me and said, but Mom there's no water. Needless to say it was a bit of an uphill battle when we moved them to Indiana!
