Submission #3..."Landcruiser Love"

"Landcruiser Love!!!!"

Just wanted to share my third submission with you when I applied to QKD! My inspiration was our 1979 Toyota Landcruiser that my husband and I purchased for each other as our wedding gift to each other almost 13 years ago!! =) I've used the QKD speedometer in SO many ways and I have another card to show you another time that I used it for in a TOTALLY different manner but I've found it SO versatile for both feminine and masculine cards!! It's a MUST have!!! And it's on sale!! NOW!! RUN!!! DON'T WALK!! ;)

Thought you'd enjoy!
