 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:

"News From The Woods"

 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

                                                         "Corn Ears"

Here we are on the last day of this month's Blog Hop.  I hope you've enjoyed what you've seen this week.  Today I have two somewhat similar cards.  The extra mini set this month coordinates with today's set.  My first card uses just images from Seed Packets.



The seed packet stamp is actually blank on the inside, but there are several vegetable images you can use in it.  I chose the tomatoes.  Actually, the image is just one tomato.  I stamped and then masked it with a post-it and then stamped it again a little "behind" it.

My second card uses the seed packet with the image and one of the sentiments from the mini set, Corn Ears.


As you can see, the two ears of corn fit very nicely within the  seed packet image.  Don't you love that little play-on-words for the sentiment?  "You're A-maize-ing."

Be sure to check out all the cards in today's Blog Hop and comment on as many as you can.  Remember the more you comment, the more chances you have to win a free set of stamps.

I just love how you put two tomatoes on the first packet. On the second card, I like the a-maize-ing sentiment with the corn.
