Loads of Love for a Grandson

Autumn is my favorite time of year but Valentine's Day is my favorite day for making cards.  I make one for each family member plus a future SIL so I have 22 to make.  After making Valentine cards for OWH (deadline was Dec. 31), I took a break but now I need to pick up the pace and get these done. 
Most of them will be quite simple but I wanted to try to make one with a secret message per the challenge at Designers Choice Challenge - pull or slide card

This is the way it looks closed:

This is after the tab is pulled:
It isn't very fancy but it is for a small grandson.
The pick up image, loads of love sentiment and little blue hearts are by Stampin Up.
the highway icons and the tire tracks are from a $1.00 roller that I bought for the grandkids to use.
The Valentine sentiment are words from GKD set Happy Hearts.
I pull out this truck every couple years.  It is especially fun to fill it with hearts. It is one of the first stamps I earned with Stampin Up about 11 years ago. 

Challenges:
A Blog Named Hero - Golden Oldie
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Valentine
Paper Creator's Crafts - Love is All Around
Craft Us Crazy - love and/or red
Lady Anne's - use a stamp or digi
Pile It On - hearts
