 Hello everyone,

Is bigger better?..well, the challenge over at LITTLE RED WAGON  this week is..BIGGER THAN NORMAL.. I'm hostess and I chose the theme..sorry, hee hee..

My project this week is a whopper:.. 14 inches long...5 inches high..and too cute..

First up, die cut and colour the train and find a driver!

passengers next..

I do, do this you know..eyes..

luckily the die come in two's..

so my blind sheep can now see..

not hard to do, just have patience..

Needed to make a railway track..just cut strips in black, glue little ones on..
trim and you are done..

Grass die put in place..

building my fence,
 I don't like barbed wire fences,  but I know it sometimes is a necessity

and as this die was sent to me by Aussie Annie years ago,
 I keep using it, it looks so silly with straight wire, so barbed it is..

and the way these sheep who can see really well carry
 on, leaping all over the place we needed the fence..

Made some mountains with a sprinkling of snow..

all my bits ready to go..

and the pecking order is,
 mountains....trees...dirt...train track on top of that..

Holly dropped in just after I popped the train on..

Lettering next..I die cut all my letters and sentiments..

Little guys name in gold..

The inside complete..

and all is done..

Happy First Birthday Eddie.. so cute..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you later for DT number 2..

Big, bold, fun and fabulous, a brilliant card for Eddie's first birthday, love the train and the scene you created with the fence and sheep- so glad they can see where they're going- it's really dangerous and very painful to jump over barbed wire fences if you can't!

All looks so easy as I look to your photos, but you also need a lot of phantasy to fix it all. Both in- and outside are stunning.

Eddie is a very lucky little boy to receive this fabulous creation. It has everything from the train to all those seeing eye sheep, and the barbed wire fence is just perfect, you think of everything don't you. xx

What a splendid card, Chrissy! All the die cuts are amazing. And you decorated the inside too - fantastic!

Conniecrafter said...

The animals are so cute and it is neat to see a barb wire instead of just plain fence for farm animals. But I do really love your scene with the trees, mountains and train track!
