My second card brings shades of Robert Redford.

Lois, what an adorable stair step card. I have been seeing lots of these step cards and thought i should try my hand at it and this is the stamp set that came to my mind to make one with. Thanks for giving me an example. :)

Both of your cards are just adorable. I love the side step card with it's hay background and the cut out tall grass. I love how you colored each of the little horsies different on your second card. Great layout! Awesome job with all the sets this week!! You have been an inspiration.
