#1 in Agriculture

     There is such a wonderful story behind this card and I really want to share it with you.  A friend who has ordered lots of cards from me has asked me for one more, this one for a very special occasion.  One of his high school Agriculture teachers is celebrating a 100th birthday!   WOW!  Several of  his former students have gotten together to throw him a birthday party.  Isn't that a fantastic thing to do?   He was so beloved by so many in the high school where he taught for 40 years.

     Anyway, knowing he was an Ag teacher, I found these two images from QKR Stampede, reversed one of them, and made a card for my friend to give him.

     I love being able to share QKR Stampede images with you two days in a row.  :-D  Because it's a masculine card, I kept it very CAS, printing directly onto the card front and then coloring it with my ProMarkers.  The only thing I added is the stitched ribbon.

What a fabulous occasion! I can't imagine living to be 100! That's such a long way away. :) So sweet of some of his students to celebrate his life. Your card is just perfect with those 2 images and colored so well. Thanks for coming by my blog and leaving your sweet comment. Hugs, Maggie
