CSS Stamp of the Month and a Template Challenge

I'm so excited to be sharing my very first "official" Clear and Simple Stamps DT project with you for today's Take the Challenge. Sue Berker has designed another fabulous FREE template for you to play with, the Summer Treat Pack Template - On those hot, sunny summer days, what better little gift to give than a summer drink treat pack holder. This adorable template houses 4 individual drink mixes. Double it up and you've got an 8-pack.

I changed things up a bit and created a functional little notepad holder to hang on my bulletin board in my Craft Room. I also attached adhesive magnets to the back so I could hang it on the fridge. Check it out...you're also getting a Sneak Peek at one of the beautiful New Release stamp sets, In Bloom, available July 15 from Clear and Simple Stamps:

Stamps: In Bloom (Clear and Simple)
Paper: Soft Suede, Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay CS (SU)
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)

Jen this is SUPER cute - I love it - in fact I think I'll make them up for some guests coming for 4th of July. So sorry for the issues you've been having with blogger. Hang in there. Have a great 4th! Hugs n smiles.
