Aaron's 5th Birthday

Today marks the 5th birthday of a very special little boy. He is not my grandson, but about as close as he could come to it.

Aaron is the first born of our very dear friends and he has four siblings below him. With this growing family, an extra set of grandparents is always handy to have around. The family (even the 'real' grandparents) often refer to us as the adoptive grandparents.

I made this card for Aaron, using an Ellephantastic letter A digi to which I added, "is for Aaron".  The fold is a simple stair stepper. My inspirations were: Recipe Challenge at Card Swaps, Bingo at Creative Stamp Friends and Sketch at Mojo Monday.

Thanks for visiting. I love visitors and your sweet comments warm my heart.

Blessings,
Teresa
