This week's new releases are: Little Birds With Big Mouths, Planted with Love, Lilacs in the Summer, and Adirondack Summer.For your convenience, all these sets are available TODAY at Mark's Finest Papers.

So, do you want to WIN today's Featured Stamp Set: Adirondack Summer? (If you don't want to wait to win, you can always purchase the sets right away! We'll substitute a set from NEXT month's release if today's winner has already purchased this set!)

For your chance to win: Comment on the participating Design Team members' blogs listed below TODAY before midnight EDT. There will be ONE random winner chosen from the comments on today's Blog Hop blogs. That winner will win Adirondack Summer. We will announce the winner's name on tomorrow's MFP blog post.

As I mentioned yesterday, I attended StampFest Orlando a couple of weeks ago. I bought this frame die there. I thought it would give you a "look outside" at what could be my back yard -- although my palm is considerable bigger than the potted one shown.

My second card is a simpler, monochromatic one. I confess I channeled a fellow DT member for the "feel" of this card. I love the way Joanne (jojot) makes cards with rounded corners and piercing. And, by the way, she is the one who introduced me to that dimpled corner punch!

Be sure to comment on the following DT members' blogs for your chance to win today's set. Thanks so much for joining us this week. We hope you have gotten lots of inspiration!

Lois, I love that frame die. How perfect for this image. YOur card is gorgeous! I didn't get to shop one minute at Stampfest because we were too busy. I'm sure I missed out on seeing some fun new (to me) stuff.
