Can you believe it's June already. I'm off to fetch Harry and all his belongings back from Uni for the summer today and can't really believe he's finished his second year. Time really has flown :-)
Before I head off we need to announce our May Giveaway winner and I thought I'd share a quick card make with you too.

Congratulations Donna. If you could mail your postal address to me at firstname.lastname@example.org I'll get your frame and papers off to you.
A card fell through the letter box the other day announcing that my cousin has become a Grandma, and was just about to go out and buy a baby card when I decided to make one (well few actually. I found a great stamp set that was perfect for my card by Woodware called I've arrived FCRL125.
After stamping the images out onto white cardstock using Memento black ink I used Copic markers to do some very basic colouring in, and then cut them out.
I used Hobbycraft 6 x 6 card bases for my cards and panels (trimmed to 5 1/2" square) which I checkered up using distress Oxide inks and a great stencil called Classy Stripes from Altenew.
I die cut the raised frames using a pair of square stitched dies by Lawn Dawn, mounted the frame on a back panel using foam tape and adhered the finished frames to the centre of gingham panels.
I built the baby's, mounted them on foam tape, added them to the centre of the card and then added the other elements and sentiment. A little glossy accents and a sprinkling of glitter on the hearts finished the cards off perfectly.
These were the colours used to colour my little girl.
And so we get to the end of today's post. Harry I hope you've started packing up your belongings, I'll be with you shortly :-). Thank you for calling by. Our June giveaway will be up on the blog on 4th so do call back then and leave a comment if you'd like to be in with a chance to win the goodies. Have a great weekend what ever you're up to and look forward to catching up again soon.
