View Full Version : Help desperately needed for a card idea!?!

Hi everyone.

I'm new - just registered today & loving the site so far.

I need to make a card for someone who is adopting a 6 year old boy. Does anyone have any ideas?

Tis a hard question.. umm..

I'm a bit lame and would go for a generic type of card but the other side is if you know these people well then.. What would you like if you were them? .. ummm..

Some ideas http://adoptionshop.com/c3/cards-announcements.html

I envision a small ring of people-holding hands- and one colour (or warm shades)
there's a gap in the ring with a small human form approaching
hands raised... and a different colour...(cool shades-blues,greens,etc)

When the card is opened the ring is complete and all the same colour...
warm shades--reds, oranges,pinks...

The forms can be very interpretive-- just drawn so you know its people and not bunches of brocolli...
maybe basic expressions by showing the eyes and mouth...

I dunno--might be off base here...

Oooh that's a lovely suggestion Mr Branch or may I call you Gnarled? :wink:

Hopefully Max is as artistic as yourself, I think I'd struggle and end up with the brocolli :lol:

By the way, what part of Canada are you from I'd like to go back for another visit again one day, loved it over there.

I live near Toronto Ontario... it's nice here...
although I hope to over the pond and experience a few things
over your way... lovin' the pub on every corner concept.

You and about half of the UK I think!

My parents are looking at houses in Nova Scotia for when they retire in a few years time - cheap holidays yay :D

be prepared for harsh winters...and they are lengthy.

The housing is fairly cheap there compared to Ontario--but
I find everything is a little more expensive...

to visit homes that are for sale all over Canada I HIGHLY suggest

it's a search engine for homes available in whatever province or price range you are interested in....

or you can visit my wee site and admire some art...lol

seriously though Canada is a great country but apparently we drive on the wrong side of the road. :lol:
