All Occasion Card Using CTMH A Bushel & A Peck June Stamp Of the Month

Hello friends!   I hope everyone is doing well and finding time to craft.  I rarely get a chance to use a new stamp the same month it comes out.   I don't normally think of anything to do with them until months later.  LOL!   I surprised myself this month and have fallen in love with this sweet CTMH June Stamp of the Month.  

I created this adorable card using CTMH June Stamp of the Month - A Bushel & A Peck.  I found some retired CTMH Jubilee paper and decided it would work well with this stamp set.  I added the sentiment inside to go with the old saying; "A Bushel & A Peck and a Hug Around The Neck".  I always thought that was a cute saying.  

And you can purchase this adorable stamp set for only $5 with a $50 purchase or you can purchase it for only $17.95 with no other purchase required.  Click on name below to order now.
