Hi, just made this card for my grand daughter's 1st birthday. She is half way across the world & I won't see her on her special day. I'm just so happy with the end result, and so easy!!! Anything that takes less time than it takes to cook dinner has to be a God send! To make it quicker I used stickers instead of stamps. Thanks so much.

Thank you so much for the tutorial. I googled other sites for instructions, and they were just way too confusing to me. You had it layed out so perfectly with step by step pictures and easy to follow instructions. What a great card!

I just made one of these for a friend having a baby girl! Used my new Cricut to make some pictures instead of drawing and stamping. LOVE IT!! Came out soooo cute!

Thank you for this idea!
