Adoption Day

My husband is a principal at an elementary school in Maine and one of the teachers at his school needed a card for a friend who has adopted two little boys.  This one is for the 3 year old, Aaron.  This is a special day for he and his brother!  I got the idea from flowerbugnd1 and she used SU punches. Her link is as follows used wide oval and large oval, word window, small circles and slit punch.  The trees are from sizzix and I used the 1 inch square punch  for  the stop sign, just fold it in quarters and cut the angle.  The road was cut by hand. with white uniball pen to make the center lines. I sponged the sky with a scallop punch and used brocade blue to make the clouds. This was a lot of fun to make and the sentiment I also found on SC.

Tomorrow I will make his brother's card so stop by (excuse the pun) and see it!  Thanks for looking.


  1. Love this card. The car is perfect. I think the trees are a nice touch, too... Great color combo.
