It's been a long time coming! There were many days with thoughts it would never happen. But on Thursday, September 3rd, Lucy was officially adopted into our family. She has been with us since she was 3 months old and she is now 3 1/2 years old and looking forward to starting preschool next week. My heart always knew she was my granddaughter, but now the courts do too! :)

This is the card I made for the happy occasion. The stamp is called "Adoption Calligraphy" made by Paper Inspirations. It was a gift from my friend, Nancy.

Ink: Basic Black
Paper: SU Pretty in pink, Certainly celery, Regal rose, Whisper white.
DP: Making Memories - Simply Fabulous Collection - Brooke

The fabulous flower brad is by K&Company, and the green organdy ribbon is retired from Stampin' UP!

A big thank you to all of my friends for their encouragement and well wishes along this long 3 year journey... WE MADE IT!
