Welcome Max

Hello crafters.  Today I am sharing with you a card I made for our neighbors who recently adopted an 18 month old little boy from China.  They gave him the name Max, and he is super sweet.  He was born with a cleft palate, and they chose him so they could bring him here to the U.S. and give him an opportunity to have surgery and have a better life.  He knows sign language, and I just love watching him use it!  I took a little gift to him and this card.  His Mom does some card making, so she appreciated it.  Here are the details:

Size:  A2
Card stock:  Bazzill, Recollections
Patterned papers:  My Mind's Eye - Quite Contrary
Sailboat:  Boys Will Be Boys Cricut cartridge cut at 2 3/4" (page 77 of the handbook)
MAX:  Olivia Cuttlebug font
Green Label Behind Max:  Spellbinders Nestabilities Die
Red Label Behind Green Label:  Paper Shapers Punch (I cut it in half and used 1/2 on each end)
Welcome:  Computer generated and punched with the same Paper Shapers punch.

Thanks for looking, and for taking the time to let me know if you like it.  Be inspired.

I am seriously like the biggest fan of adoption...I know how lucky I am for everything that I have but I'll always wish we could of adopted more (but like 3 little ones isn't enough, right? Ack!) LOL!
I just know how very excited/nervous/happy/overwhelmed they are! LOL! And wish them and their little guy a VERY happy life! I'm so glad you made this for them, you are an awesome friend!
