Warm Thoughts

 Happy Friday Eve.  I'm off tomorrow so this is really my Friday and it's going to be a super busy one!  I'm popping in with a card for a super happy occasion.  A co-worker of mine is adopting tomorrow.  For so many years she has fostered children and has longed to have a child of her own.  I am so thrilled that tomorrow the adoption of her beautiful 10 year old will be official.  My heart simply sings with happiness for her.  So this simple CAS card will be for her and her daughter.  I used the color palette from this week's Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.
