Beep Beep!

This is the birthday card I made for my nephew for his first birthday this past week. I was fortunate to spend extra time with my sister and her family the previous week when my Dad was hospitalized and they came up to see him. Fortunately, everything turned out okay and we were all able to celebrate my Mom's birthday together. I've gotten addicted to WOW Toys lately and ended up getting my nephew the fire engine and the farmer. My sister said she really liked this card and she doesn't usually express that about my cards so I felt good about it. I know she appreciates my cards but I was excited that this one was extra special to her. In fact, I really like it myself. LOL

Tomorrow, the entire Avocado Arts Pit Crew will be showcasing the January Stamp Set: Sweet Treat Sweetie combined with sneak peeks of the February Stamp Set: Wishes and Kind Thoughts. You don't want to miss it! ;)

It's perfect Emily - I love the cut out trucks on the kraft background. I understand exactly what you mean about praise from your sister - I have the same in my family!

Everytime I see this set, I think, why do I not have it? The vehicles are super cute. Fab coloring! It's perfect for a little guy.

I love WOW! vehicles, too (I think we have 6--yikes!). The mixer is my son's fave, although the garbage truck and plane are really fun. I like Green Toys trucks, too (they're good for outside).
