June SOTM Blog Hop and don't forget the Blog Candy!

Hi There! 
Welcome to the June SOTM Blog Hop where over 60 consultants will give you a wide variety of ideas using the Wonderful Friend stamp set available June 1-30th only!
First off-  if you came from Melissa's blog- you're headed in the right direction... but if not- no worries because the blog hop is a continuous loop so once you're done here the next link is at the bottom of this post.

I have already posted one card using this set this month and you can find it here.  This card I'm showing today is a very simple card-  I had to design a card for a swap I was in and had to use the papers and cardstock from the Passages kit... which I had totally forgotten to order!  Luckily I'd picked up a 6x6 paper swatch of all the new papers so I had SOMETHING to use... but alas- it's just a small strip.  I made up for it by using the diamond pattern to make a wider stripe behind the paper.  I kept it simple so I could give this card to my dad for Father's Day...
What you can't tell- is that the circle piece is pop-dotted above the square.

Hop on over to Barbara's blog to see what she's got in store for you!



P.s  If you haven't left a comment on the post below yet... go ahead and do so now!  You can win a kit to create the 4 cards shown in the post.  All supplies are ready for assembly except for a couple minor things you need to do.  All images are pre-stamped!  No stamps or inks requred- just scissors and adhesive!  Contest ends Tuesday at midnight EST.

Just goes to show what amazing things can be done with small scraps of paper...that's why I never throw even the tiniest scraps away! Nice.
