My Handy Man is the Dandiest!

This is my Third post for today...this is my limit in one day. But I had made this card and wanted to post for some Monday Challenges.
I used these great stamps from Paper Pretties "Handyman" set and colored with copics and glaze pens....one of the glaze pens linked (that's what happens when you lose  that tiny piece for the tip) messing up the wheels and I had to do some paper piecing with yellow CS. Was going for that John Deere look...my DH helped with selecting the colors since he is more familiar with mowers than I am.
Added a little sponging in the background for the summer sky and sun.
Challenges:
Cards for Men: Challenge is Clean and Simple. I went for the cleanest and simplest doing a One Layer Card.
Party Time Tuesdays: Challenge is Birthdays.
Cute Card Thursday: No DP to be used. Maybe not everyone thinks a lawn mower is subject for cute but I think this one is cute enough without DP.
Annabelle Stamps Blog: Say it with ....one layer. Sue, I included some sponging for you. Sorry, no Annabelle's stamps in this one, but I plan to do another card with them for another entry.
Craft Your Days Away:  Create card  for birthdays for any age and anyone, be they general or special. This is for my special "Lawn Mower Man".
Creative Inspirations: Theme is Summertime...which means always Mowing the Grass, does it not???
Paper Pretties Monday Challenge: Theme is Lazy Days of Summer. Maybe lawn mowing does not bring thoughts of lazy days but the grass seems to be growing around this mower indicating that the handyman guy is enjoying some Lazy Days dazing not mowing.
Supplies:
Stamps: Paper Pretties Handyman Set
Copics and Glaze pens;  Memento Tuxedo Black,  Bamboo Leaves, Summer Sky, and Dandelion Inks
Paper: White and Yellow Card stock

Hope you are having Lazy Days of Summer!
I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
