Teapot Tuesday is here again, yahoo! Our cards are going to Jesse, a friend of Connies (stamp300). This card is in the mail and I am sure that Jessie will quickly work out I have never been to a farm in my life.
The story this week was terrific, we get extra cookies for bringing an Appaloosa horse complete with spots and dots. Sadly my Appaloosa horse, George, is still grazing in the top padock. His owner, Clyde, has started up the tractor and is going off to look for him. One of George's little mates is waiting patiently for his return....
Now for the card. Nothing went quite to plan here. The card started out as a centre step card, but I couldn't fit the little horse in (and still fit in an envelope). By the time I worked this out the adhesive tape had really taken a good grip, so I cut around the barn and the cardstock and adhered it to a stair step card.
I purchased a digi stamp from Scrappin Doodles for this, I printed it on white cardstock. I didn't have enough red dp to put in the printer so I traced around the white copy and made my own barn. I used a sharpie pen to put the lines in. I hope I haven't breached any copy write policies. If you don't hear from me for a while, I am in craft prison!!
I covered the trees with little hydrangea flowers (Martha Stewart punch) and did little green centres with liquid pearls. Inside the barn are some cows, I cut them out of last years calendar (I have probably added 2 weeks to my craft prison sentence for breaching another copywrite law).
Young Clyde on the tractor is coloured with copics and TH distress inks. I had loads of fun making this, thank you for looking and have a great week everyone.

This is just that cutest little scene! I love your barn and your wonderful tree! Another masterpiece from Susie! If you wind up in the pokey then you will have lots of time to make these awesome cards. No dishes, no dusting, no sweeping or moping, no cooking or shopping - just card making.....Sounds like heaven to me....
