Loads of Love...

Happy Friday! A very special and lovely friend of mine is having a baby! The cat is not out of the bag to the world, so I'm not saying who it is. She doesn't know if she's having a boy or a girl (or maybe is keeping that delicious secret to herself!), so I wanted to make a card for her that was just about letting her know that I am thinking about her -- and her handsome hubby, too -- they are going to be such amazing parents and I am just so thrilled for them.
I used the adorable dump truck image from Taylored Expressions' Kid at Heart set, and I love that I can use it for more than just Valentine's Day. I created a little "road" for the truck by simply cutting some cardstock and adding white lines with a gel pen. A little vellum for the sentiment and I was all set for a card to send a huge truckload of love and good wishes!
