June is a busy month!

It's hard to believe that it is near the end of a month again! June is always such a busy time of year whether you have schoolage children involved in end of year activiites or you are readying your garden for summer. June is always a busy month in the world of Stampin' Up! The new Idea Book & Catalogue sales officially begin July 1st. Retired stamp sets and accessories are quickly being ordered before they are gone for good, and lists are being made for "must haves" from the new catalogue.
Recently, I hosted a baby shower for my nephew and niece in our home which kept us busy preparing for the event!
I wanted to show you the card I made for the new arrival. This is a retired Stampin' Up! set from a ways back, but I have kept it in my stash because it is so darn cute! Have a look.

I have paper pieced the little onsie and coloured in the lettering with a marker. When dry, I added
Crystal Effects to make the word cute "pop". The border beneath the card was created using the
new triple punch, Blossom Bouquet. Love this punch, it's so versatile! To make it  even more
feminine I added some of the Basic Pearls to the centre of the blossoms.

stamps: Big on spring.
ink: Staz-on in black
marker: Daffodil Delight
designer series paper: Sunny Gardern
cardstock: Melon Mambo, Whisper White
