Monday Montage 230 - Country Bouquet

Where do the weekends go??? Brunch with Friends on Saturday morning, Sourdough bread making, and a Lord of the Rings Marathon.  Church on Sunday,  bake the bread, make cards, and then the weekend is gone.  There may have been a few chores interspersed like laundry and dishes that always need doing.

I purchased the Country Bouquet stamp set and punch after it was demo'd at Stampin UP Onstage.  Couldn't wait to play with it.  I finally sat down to play with it and all I could think of is "why did I buy that?"  It looks like a stamp set to make cute country decor from the 80"s.  What I do like about it is that it is a set that can be used year round, not just for Valentines Day. Also all the stamps and sentiments don't have to be used all together.

The mini slimline card lent itself to the offset stacking hearts.  I love all the brightly colored hearts and the distinctive look of the hearts.  

I wanted to make a cute little treat box to accompany the card and fill with these yummy peach gummy hearts sold by a cute little kitchen supply store here. I left the box opening uncovered (the back of the box) and decorated the other side.  Make it cute and the candy still accessible (great idea Bree)
