Sailboats and Tractors

Even though fall is one of my favorite seasons, I find myself missing the sailboats on the bay when I drive by. It's one of the first things I look for in the spring, so the disappearance of them is a little sad for me. It means winter is coming. They are calling for snow for tomorrow already! Not ready for that!

Over at The Paper Players this week they are looking for clean and simple masculine birthday cards, so I pulled out an old sailboat stamp and this is what I came up with. I love brown and blue together.


I made another one in honor of my husband, who really wants a new tractor and is trying to find a way to justify one. Maybe I'll give him this card because I think this is as close as he's going to get!
