 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:

"Lucky You"
 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

     "Take Time Mini"

I come from a family of farmers.  So this set is near and dear to my heart.  When I first saw it I though of my brother and sister in law and the farm they have.  We just returned from a trip to Brooks Oregon where we went to see the "Great American Steam Up".  It was on 65 acres of land with thousands of  tractors, steam tractors, steam saw mills, old farm machinery, hit and miss engines, and lots of antiques...  What a trip we had...
 Here is a photo of one of the steam tractors...

If you love farms and animals you will LOVE this set!!!  It is darling!!!  I loved using it to create these fun cards...

Thanks for stopping by and leaving such great comments.  Please visit the rest of the gals...

  5. Two very cute cards! Love this set!

  6. Cute cards. I really like the gingham on your first card. The Great American Steam up sound like The Old Threshers Reunion. There is a huge show in Mt Pleasant Iowa every labor day weekend. My husband and I go almost every year to see the old steam tractors. They also have a huge antique swap meet.

  7. Awww! Both cards are so cute! Love the country DP and the chicken wire on your first one and I love how you have separated the cow and pig by a fence on your second! My husband would have had a blast at the "Great American Steam Up"!

  8. Such fun looking Country cards!! Terrific creations!

  9. Great cards--I love farms and animals!

  10. This set is certainly up your alley!!! What darling cards. I love the cow and pig voicing their thoughts!

  11. Like the photo of the tractor. Like the open die cut used for background. I have a die similar to this. Like the fence animals. Reminds me of the fun I've had at a friend's farm.

  12. The chicken wire background id just perfect for the image........Lis

  13. Your cards are beautiful! I love the vintage feel. That steam tractor looks like one that my great uncle had on his farm.

  19. OMGoodness - I like both of the cards! The roosters are adorable! But so are the cow and piggy - well done!
