Old time farming

This card is courtesy of a cyber friend at SplitCoastStampers, Mary, aka octoberbabe.  She used this combination of images on a card for a Tuesday TeaPot Party.  When I saw it, I knew I had to have this for my hubby's twin.  At age 82, he has had health issues, and just recently moved to an assisted living facility, at least for the winter.  He is a retired farmer, and my hubby has often helped him.  He says this tractor is a John Deere D, just like their uncle used to have.  This really looks like a ND landscape years ago!  The stamps she used are from a company called Bad Axe, and probably no longer available.  Thanks, Mary, for stamping this - and adding all those great touches.  The card is 6.5 x 4.75.
New:  image; bg using SteamPunk EF by Darice
