Default Need unusual sentiment--citizenship

We have friends who came to the US from Cuba several years ago. They both just had their citizenship ceremonies, and I stamped a card for them. Red background with red stars, Liberty Bell stamp from AC Moore, and "God Bless America" from TAC. Now I'm stuck on what to write inside!

I don't want to say, "Welcome to the USA" because they've been here for years. I keep thinking of Pierre Robert (Philly folk might know him) saying "Hello, Citizens!" But I don't think they'd get that!

Any suggestions?

Maybe something about "dreams coming true" or "hard work paid off".

If it's a fun card -- maybe about "finally being one of us". (pun intended)

That's all I can come up with at the moment. HTH

I personally think Congratulations would work fine!

How nice of you to recognize them for doing this! I think "Congrats" is fine. Also including how nice it has been to get to know them, etc. Just from the heart I think is what works best -- especially for something like this!

You could go with some kind of an acrostic that would be personal to them...

U niquely and always Cuban

S ingled out and chosen to be...

A merican.

Don't mind me....I'm a teacher This caught my eye because my husband left Cuba with his family when he was 3 years old. Bless you--I'm sure you are a real encouragement to them!!

I know Pierre Robert! He makes a tofu turkey on Thanksgiving.

I recently bought a stamp from House-Mouse that says "Celebrate Independence!"

Just an idea.
