On to my first card: This was a birthday card for my father in-law. I thought considering his personality the pick-up truck from the Loads of Love stamp set with a load of dogs in the back was suiting...Gabby (my nearly 2 year old) apparently disagreed. After having a lot of fun making this card and getting it just right, my sweet little one came along and made a quick 'edit' to the card...apparently her Grumpa (no typo there) needed a convertible not a pick up truck! I don't think I would have come up with this myself but if you tear off or omit the top bit of the trucks cab it actually make a nifty car!! I've found that with a toddler you really have to go with the flow and though that often means dealing with chaos occasionally you find a little treasure in the rubble!
