This week our cards are going to Lloyd. He has found memories of meeting his wife on a hayride many years ago. They were married for 65 years! She passed away and we want to send Lloyd a little encouragement and cheer.
I tried to make it look like the tractor is coming out from the rows of sunflowers. The back step has the verse, " With God, nothing shall be impossible" Luke 1:37

My mouth is still stuck in the "WOW" position, Kathleen - this is amazing!! Your farm looks just like the rolling hills around here. I love your card design and all of the awesome detail and thought that you put into it. It surely puts my card to shame...kind of like Uncle Lloyd putting all of the young kids to shame with his energy. This is so beautiful - Uncle Lloyd is going to love this! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for coming to his Teaparty. My little tractor cookies aren't enough reward, but take a pile anyway - you have earned them! Big ol' hugs from NJ my friend!

WOW..if this can't brighten someone's day I don't know what can!! Those sunflowers are amazing and the whole step card farm is so cool!! You really took your card to the next step (pun intended)...I love the verse on the sign in the back, too!

Kathleen, what a totally wonderful scene you have created - full of summer sunshine and happiness. It reminds me of camping in France, those big fields of sunflowers. But they don't really have barns like that there...And you even fit a tractor in too, for total perfection.

Oh my goodness Miss Kathleen Lammie from Alabama this is jaw dropping wonderful!!! Are you sure you have never been to Australia, these sunflowers and barn and old tractor look very familiar!! You have created a truly magical scene my friend and on a stair step card!!! Lloyd is in for a very big dose of Teapotter love.
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.
