June Stamp of the Month - Wonderful Friend

Tonight's post is going to be a quick one so I can slide in under the wire. You know me: Last Minute Latisha!

If you're traveling on the CTMH Blog Hop, you should have arrived from Allison Mullen's blog. After you view this bolg, you will travel to Laurie Newton's blog.

The June Stamp of the Month - D1422 Wonderful Friend - has a Father's Day theme, but can be used for many other celebrations. For my 4x4 card, I used the tie as a background because my husband doesn't wear ties. Hopefully this will inspire you to look outside of the box when working with this set.

Products used:
D1422 Wonderful Friend
Z2135 New England Ivy Ink Pad
Z2140 Outdoor Denim In Pad
Z2114 Cocoa Ink Pad
1301 Bamboo Cardstock
X5642 Cocoa Cardstock
1388 Colonial White Cardstock
Z1146 Pewter Designer Brads

As always, all these products are available on my website.
(Sorry about the blurry picture - I was holding the baby when I took the picture.)
