 Hello everyone,

Sharing a card today which was an order for a two year old who loves farms and farm animals and really likes sheep as he can say the word " Sheep"..what kiwi kid can't say sheep right, there are more sheep here in New Zealand than people..but a great accomplishment anyway..

Again started with a very big slimline card..12 1/2 inches long..

^ inches wide or high..

Sorted out all my dies with animals and critters and stuff...

Then started off with making the hills with blue card stock background
so I didn't have to colour..then die cut my barbed wire fence, love this for a farm fence..

Die cut and coloured a tractor and trailer....cut grass and wheat..

A couple of bunny's..

The colouring is terrible but it was the day of days for my eyesight..

Added this awesome Marianne tree border die behind the hills...

Then I added sheep...using a white gel pen and black for their stick legs..

Lots of sheep and all locked behind the fence...

Then the wheat and grass were added coming forward..

Then the tractor and I found this cute little lamb online so printed and fussy cut him and stuck him in the trailer..I also put the tractor and trailer on wobble springs, videoed it working then lost the footage..

There's a cute cow, another internet fine fussy cut and looking over the fence..
He looks like he ate to much wheat..

The inside of the card had a bit of a scene going on too..

Then the decision for where to put the sentiment I had in mind
 but  had forgotten about it..I get so wrapped up in it all..

So decided to pop it on the barn roof and door..

This is the box lid..I love making boxes this long, so easy and fun..
These were mostly online free pictures, so handy..

And the box and card together..
 The lady was thrilled to bits, but so was I as I had sooo much fun making win win..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll catch you up soon..
