 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"

Today's set, called Seed Packets, is the perfect compliment to day #1's set Garden Bunny.

I continued with the vegetables theme and did some more water colouring.

I thought the green card stock was the perfect colour for the images, and distressing the edges of the panels was a good way to look rustic without looking too messy

For my second card I had the idea to make a card that was really simple.  I love the tomato image so this is what I came up with:

I think it would be fun to make a card set with all of the vegetables which I would have done but by the end of my card making sessions I was running out of time.  Even so I love this tomato.  I think I got the perfect shade and the Glossy Accents came out perfectly.

I hope you enjoyed viewing my cards as much as I enjoyed making them.  The rest of the DT had a great time with the stamps this month so don't forget to continue hopping and see what wonderful things they've done.  And you should also visit the Mark's Finest Papers store.  There you will find a lot more beautiful stamp sets and some wonderful crafty products!  :)
