This is my card for the teapot party challenge this week - to bring your tractors - red or green or anything in between. Bring farming implements or vegetables from your garden. Our cards are going to a gentleman who loves to garden.
I don't have any tractor images, but while looking at the clip art in one of my computer card making programs, I found this image of a young boy carrying water to the garden. I think it speaks volumes, as does this poem I found:
Whoever makes a garden
Has oh so many friends:
The glory of the morning,
The dew when daylight ends,
And rain and wind and sunshine
And dew and fertile sod,
For he who makes a garden
Works hand in hand with God.
I sized the image, lightened it and overlaid the poem. I know this isn't exactly what was asked for, but I'm pretty sure I'm safe from the challenge police ;)
As always, thanks for looking!

Oh my goodness Jody! You found such a beautiful, vintage image! It makes me think a little of Tom Sawyer :) LOL Your poem tugs on the heartstrings. It makes me want to go plant something now! But I better wait for spring! Love this Jody!!!
