Hayseed Hank

Check it out...it's Hayseed Hank! What a great name! You can own him too, just head on over to Sunshine Stamps and check out all the great images!

I made this card for my hubby....although I'm not sure when I'll give it to him yet. Every year he plants this garden that gets overgrown and we end up with so many veggies at the end of the summer that we have to start giving stuff away...much like we did today - 3 Zucchini's, 2 bunches of Broccoli, some green peppers and a few cucumbers. Anyway, every year I beg him not to plant so much, if only so that he won't spend 45 minutes each day watering and tending to the garden. This year, however, I discovered that the kids are finally getting old enough they are happy to just hang outside with him, and it actually gives me some time to myself most days. So, this card will be a peace offering of sorts...and as any good wife knows, you have to give a peace offering at the just the right time, and in the just the right way so that he knows he's done good, but not too good...I don't want him to think that he's "won" the garden argument! LOL!

Anyway, I hope that you enjoy my card today.

Your card turned out cute. Love the story too! I'm the lucky one who lives up the street - we have enjoyed cucumbers and brocolli from said garden - we are thankful!
Looking forward to tomorrow evening...
