This weeks teapot cards go to Jesse who is suffering from non curable cancer.
I have been deep underground creating for a long time today. One thing I have learned is that step cards like Susie Australia makes are engineering miracles. I tried my first step card today and at least after spending 4 hours at it I am happy. It was very hard to photograph it to show the steps but the little boys on the fence are on step one, the hills and most of the path are on step 2, and more fields and the barn are on step 3.
Everything except the birch trees are Crafty Secrets from the Farm set. The scene was added to with some extra pen and ink lines and coloured with copics.

Your card is adorable! The little boys are adorable. I especially love the one peeking upside down. Your coloring and attention to all the details is amazing! I'm surprised it only took 4 hours! It would probably take me a week! Great card! Thanks so much for sharing.

Oh my goodness gracious me, Elizabeth this is incredible. I don't know where to start. I love the way you have carried the scene across the whole width of the card. Your colouring is out of this world!!! I am speechless that this only took 4 hours, it would take me twice as long. I hope you had fun making it, cos' I can't stop grinning everytime I look at it. Straight into My Favs!!! TFS
