FWF Sweeter


Today I have a simple and sweet card to share for the Unity Friends with Flair blog hop. I made this card as a thank you for a friend who has kindly given me lots of baby items to help me prepare for the kid(s) we hope to soon be adopting. Since we don't know the age (will be 0-3) or even if it will be one or two kids, it's been very hard to prepare yet I have a need to "nest".

I've asked for help and the world has given back in such amazingly generous ways. I want to spread the love. I was thrilled to see I was last week's FWF post winner! I'm nearing my 300th post on my blog and to celebrate I'll be giving quite generously to one of my followers as well. I'll have a post on this soon but wanted to give everyone the heads up in case you are not already a follower. I so appreciate each visit to my blog and send a personal thank you to each and everyone of you for making my day brighter!

All images by Unity, ink and paper by Stampin' Up! - Regal Rose & Certainly Celery, green/gold stickles, copic markers, and buttons.

Your card is awesome and what a great reason to need a thank you card! I hope the adoption process goes quickly and smoothly and your family grows just as you would like!

oh, this is such a sweet card, and a sweet story behind it. What a wonderful and stressful time you are going through and I'm sure it will all be wonderfully worth it in the end when your new family is all together!
Hugs :)

How sweet of both of you. Nice job. And I hope that things go well with the adoption, and the kid(s) you get. We have friends who adopted 2 kids from the Ukraine... do you get to spend a lot of time with the kids before you decide fully?
