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

"Lucky You"


 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

"Take Time Mini"
                                                      


I had seen directions for this technique both on Splitcoaststampers and the Technique Junkies Newsletter CD, Move It.  It is called a Curved Fold Card.  I stamped, colored and cut out the four images from today's set (Country Charm) and placed them on the curved pieces, with the barn glued to the back.  I added a little punched-out fence and a cloud, and I was done.


Cutesy is not my style, but I had fun with this set.  My second card uses several of the images from this fun set, as well as a chicken-wire embossing folder.


Again, I invite you to check out all the cards made by our talented design team members and comment on their blogs for a chance to win a free stamp set.  Here's the Design Team:
