Its my nieces birthday today and I spent ages making a lovely card for her, only for Connor to rip it to pieces yesterday :(

I tried and tried last night but I couldn't come up with one that I felt was good enough, so I threw one together this morning- do you think its ok?

I personally don't like it but don't have time to make another one- its this or I buy one on my way over there!

It's a bit girlie, would prefer trains on it myself but if you insist well it's a nice girlie card! :p Sounds like you need to increase your Connor-free space?

Thanks guys,

I don't know why I'm so worried- she's 2!!!! But yes I do have high standards for my cardmaking- I have been known to chuck cards in the bin or take bits off and reuse them on other cards cos I wasn't happy with the result lol.

Dom I thought I was gonna cry- the card was sitting on my desk in a handmade box (was a 3d card that took several hours to make), Connor followed me upstairs when I went to take some clean washing- before I could stop him he had grabbed it and ripped all the bits off the front, couldn't even recycle/rescue it. Gutted :(

Agh I guess it's that age where you are always a step behind him as far as knowing what he will destroy next :(.

You have the thumbs up from my 4 year old daughter and my six year old son.

Wow if that is one of you quick cards then you most certainly have a talent. Have you thought about selling cards as they look great.

I used to sell them when I lived in London, haven't really got as far as thinking about selling here lol.

Thanks for the nice comments all- gotta run, have a toddler to abandon on a farm (am hoping that some random pig or goat will take a shine to him and adopt him :p)

Nesties are fantastic- I have 'ahem' a few sets!

Niece looked at the card, screamed bear and then chucked the card behind the telly pmsl- all that worrying for nothing!
