Hobbies and Pastimes

Good morning crafty friends, hope I find you well.
As it's Tuesday it means another challenge over t Cardz4Guyz. This week we would like to see your projects on the theme of -


Now I had to think hard on that one, when is a sport a hobby? Anyway after looking through the stash I decided on the 'Vintage Tractor' stamp from Molly Bloom. Hubster has been to quite a few vintage tractor rallies and has spent a lot of time getting his vintage grey Fergie to work, not for showing mind you, just for working! There are plenty of devotees of these tractors and spend alot of time and money on getting them renovated, so definitely a hobby/ pastime.

I used the latest sketch over at Sketch Saturday for the layout but tipped it on its side!

The side panels are raised with an added strip of kraft on the edge and the landscape panel made up from a NitWits paper scrap in the bits box and some marbled paper together with some die cut clouds. This was glued flat on the base and the image was stamped then coloured with Copics, fussy cut, then mounted on pads.

OK, now it's over to you, what will you choose? Join in the fun over at Cardz4Guyz and don't forget to check out the rest of the team's and our fab GD's inspiration.

I should also like to join in at -

Copic Marker Europe - Things with Wings
(There are two wings over the large wheels on the tractor, hubster has two wing shells to fit on his !)
