This past weekend we got to celebrate with a friend who has adopted a 3 year old son! It’s a beautiful story, but it’s not been an easy journey. A group of us who were all together in a leadership study a year ago gathered together and threw them a "welcome to her family shower," and I made the card that we gave to them. I wanted it to be all boy, full of joy with a dreamy summer feel.
I started with The Cat’s Pajamas - Drop In stamp set. I knew it would be perfect for the a "precious-but-not-so-little-boy". We decorated for the shower with a world travel theme, so it was a good pairing.
Stamped onto XPress Blending Cardstock, paper pieced with Simple Stories So Rad dp, and then coloured in with a little bit of Copics. The sentiment is from TCP’s Words of Love set.
To finish it off I added some of our TCP Stitched Clouds CutUps, ‘cause they’re my favourite! Then a button and twine finish it off.
Here’s the Copics I used.
