Cottage Garden Stamp-a-Stack

I can't believe we're in June already...the year is flying by scarily fast. I'd better get cracking and design the rest of my classes for July (including Christmas Stamp-a-Stacks!!). My plan for today is to do just that. However, the sun is shining outside for the first time in a couple of weeks, so I might have to squeeze in a walk in the sunshine too. Poor Coco has been very walk-deprived lately... I have to say, I love my job!
Before I do all that, I thought I'd pop in here and show you last month's Stamp-a-Stack design

Super-easy, these ones! We just stamped a background on a 1/4 sheet of A4, and punched twelve 1 1/4" squares from it. The squares fit really nicely on a 7cm x 10.5cm piece of cardstock, and I've added a few extra squares of co-ordinating DSP. Finish off with some ribbon, and voila, you're done!
I've used a soft, gentle colour scheme - Sahara Sand, Baja Breeze and Basic Grey.
