Morning and welcome....

Our only grandchild, Max, who you may remember moved to Dorset just before Christmas, (we and Max's dad (my son) live in the north east), it's so very hard for us coping with this distance

Last Thursday was parents' evening and Max received an excellent report.  The teacher said he was a credit to his parents as well as being "an awesome little fella".... very proud parents and grandparents as you'd expect

This is way I've made today's card to send to him and I've also shown what I added inside 

The background is created using Distress Oxide Inks, I did block a border around the whole of the card but must not have pressed the lift off tape hard enough because the ink spilled onto the bottom of the card and one side, hence the wiggly black border

The card is a lot brighter too in the 'flesh'

The stamp set is unknown, which is annoying!  I used 5 different colours for the stamping on the card front and typed the insert

Until tomorrow....

  1. What a superb card june, im sure max will love the card but especially the heartfelt words in the centre. I can just 'feel' how proud you are of him.
    Fantastic card and a great idea for this upcoming end of term. Thank you for never failing to come up with new ideas xxx

  2. Fab card June, it is so hard when they live so far away. I only see mine 2 or 3 times a year and it is harder now that they live in different parts of UK. xxx

    1. Thank you Wendy, it is very hard, they grow up so fast too! x

  3. What a simple idea but so effective. Thank you June.

  4. Spot on card for a young one June, I'm pleased he's doing so good and I'm sure he will love the verse as much as you love him

  5. A wonderful card June and I am sure your Grandson will love it. Thank you for sharing this with us. I need to make a card for my youngest Granddaughter who I was told today has passed her second Ballet exam with Merit and has also gone up a class in her swimming. Very proud of her.

    1. Excellent news about your granddaughter Littlelamb, no wonder you are very proud of her she is doing so well
