June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - A Bushel & a Peck

Welcome to the JuneStamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month's stamp is A Bushel & a Peck. This adorable stamp has 15 images!! If you came from Michelle Johns' Blog you are on the right track! The hop is one big circle so when you get back to me you will know you have completed the hop! If you get lost along the way, you can see the entire list of participants HERE. What an ADORABLE stamp set!  This stamp is a lot of fun for coloring!  Even though this is the JUNE stamp of the month, it made me think of August and autumn colors so I pulled out some Enchantment colors to create my card.  I started with a Sapphire pattern paper from the Enchantment Fundamental paper pack and New England Ivy and Saffron cardstock.

June Special - Create the Rainbow

I just can not get over how fast this year is flying by!  Did we even have a spring?  If you live in Middle Tennessee - probably not much!  We are full blown into summer weather here!  Today I wanted to share a NEW special that Close To My Heart has for you!  I think you will LOVE it!! If you are familiar with Close To My Heart and our products, then you will know that our cardstock is sold either in 24 sheets of ONE color OR you can purchase a Combo pack which contains 20 sheets - 2 of each of 10 colors in a pack. There are 4 different Combo packs that you can choose from - Basic (Browns & Greys), Enchantment (darker more Autumn type colors), Whimsy (Pastels) and Adventure (Bright colors). The 1-color packs usually are too much of one color unless you are doing a big project that uses alot of one color of cardstock. Our Combo packs are great but how many times have you needed more or less of a couple of the colors?? We've got a great Cardstock special in June!! This
