May Giveaway Winner

Woodware Baby Stamp Set
Morning Everyone 
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.  
Thank you everyone for your comments, as always I had great fun reading them. has chosen comment no 30 
as our winner, left by 
Congratulations Donna.  If you could mail your postal address to me at 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.

IndigoBlu Tags  Happy Friday everyone If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!    I cant deny I'm not pleased its the weekend and I've got time to re charge my batteries before attempting another 5 days on the trot :-)  As I've just joined the IndigoBlu team official this week I thought I'd share a couple of tags with you made with stamps from the  Pomp and Pageantry and Grand Tour 1 plates and the ledger background which I really love.  Tag 1 IndigoBlu

Launching the File Folder......

Hi everyone, it's Friday and launch day for our latest project - the File Folder.  I had loads of fun making the samples altered here in two gorgeous paper collections to give two totally different looks to the same File Folder Cover Set.  .   Measuring 10" x 7 1/4 x 2" the sturdy File Folder Cover set is laser cut from 3mm MDF, has a magnetic closure inset into the covers, opens top reveal the option to add a noticeboard section on the inside cover and a ring binder that holds four layered pages. These can be made with or without pockets and pull out photo mats.  I've added a tuck spot option for the pages too. These allow you to slot pictures onto the pages without sticking them down. That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall se
