A donkey ...

... for my sweet little Luca.

Hello there, my title probably made you smile today, and my heart smiles when I think that my gorgeous nephew Luca will receive this in post tomorrow morning( I made sure he will wink, wink). you see Luca is nearly 1 and a half now and is growing up (FAST!!) to be a typical little boy, full of energy, loud and every now and again mischievous. So of course like every parent out there my sister is trying to lay down the rules that will bring peace and harmony to the household( I know what you are all thinking here, well those that have kids of their own at least LOL). Of course this new plan of mummy's doesn't meet Luca's approval and like expected he did rebel against it at first. Perseverance is key and I have heard reports that the plan is finally starting to work (daddy joined in mum's efforts so they work as a team) and my cute little angel is GETTING THE PLAN!!!!LOL How sweet is that?
So of course Mimi (that's what Luca calls me, oooh you just don't how much I like that) thought that this kind of good behaviour should be rewarded and she bought him a little present, a DONKEY!! Now this is not your everyday donkey but the softest and squishiest donkey out there. Is supposed to be a pillow and it just feels gorgeous ( found it in my local Aldi for a bargainous £4.95) but what s so perfect about it is that Luca adores anything furry or fluffy, he just loves snuggling up to furry things and I just know this will make his day.
A quick card was made to travel with the donkey to London and I have used a layout shared at a demo training event I attended last night in Sheffield. The stamp set is my fave's *Wild about you* and colours used are Kraft, Choc Chip, Creamy caramel ink, and Bashful Blue. Lookie at that new grosgrain striped ribbon (mmmm). Will keep you informed on how the donkey and Luca get on. Hugs Monica xxx
