Anyone want to mow a lawn?

I was going to say this was a great man card...and it is, but I am sure there are quite a few ladies out there who mow the lawn also.  I will be one of those ladies on the weekend probably.  

I guess we could have always made the lawn mower pink :) 

I wanted to try a different size of card for this one. I tend to always stick to the standard card of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" but for this one I made it a 5 1/4" square card that will fit into our square envelopes.  

I stamped the lawn mower in Staz-on ink and then watercoloured with my blender pens.  I cut the circle out with my coluzzle and then used the Scallop #2 die with the Big Shot to get my Black Scallop Circle.  I snipped the edges of garden green card stock to make grass and attached it to my white circle and trimmed to match the circular edge.  I punched out my greeting with the word window punch and then layered that onto some altered lg oval punches to get the affect you see in the photo.

Hope you are enjoying the sunny weather!  I just wish it would be a lot warmer.  Don't forget to keep up to date with the Last Chance Accessory List that I have been updating in yesterday's post.  Some products are already showing Out of Stock.  Don't hesitate... order today!
