MY HAPPY PLACE...

Hey there, happy Saturday!  The guys are going out fishing and that gives me a good excuse to head to the "crapping" room (hubby and his buddy's name for my craft room...D'oh!).  Today's Hope You Can Cling To challenge for the Splitcoast Stampers card drive is a good one.  Michelle is challenging us to "Find Your Happy Place"...somewhere we like to go mentally or physically to get away.

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. 
So with that said, I chose an Our Craft Lounge set called Bountiful Harvest.  The tractor was stamped on white card stock and colored with Copic markers.  I don't use my Toner Gray's very often but I like to break them out for this stamp to give my tractor that sort of rustic feel.  All of the die cuts are Spellbinders dies and the DP is Cosmo Cricket.  Assorted buttons and twine complete the card.

Copic coloring:

Tractor:  R08, R05, R02,T6, T4, T3, T2, T0, BG10  Ground:  G85, G21, G20, YG91, YG67, YG17,  Sky:  BG70, 0  Inside image:  E57, E55, E53, E50, R08, R05, R02, G85, G21, G20, YG91, YG67, YG17, BG70, 0
