The impressive image of the barn, as it sits in the field surrounded by fields of color, connects to the passerby. It invites you in to meet the animals that live there providing you with the great storytelling ideas and enact animal storytelling. Its bright red color stands out from the road. Its shape shows that it has many different rooms. It is a powerful image with thoughts around folklore and storytelling.
The Barn invites you to be a part of its warmth. It connects to you just as you will connect to the person to whom you send the card. Barns symbolize warmth and hard work; they are a foundation of America.
