As soon as I saw this stamp set in the new catty, I knew that I had to have it! Once I got it, I struggled with cards worthy of the blog hop, so I played all weekend with them. I wanted to showcase each herb at least once, so here is what I came up with.

The first card is Lavender which stands for devotion. I used an oval punch, scalloped oval punch and the modern label punch, I also used a scalloped border punch on the bottom. I totally love the Razzelberry Lemonade DSP and the Rich Razzelberry paper and polka dotted ribbon.

The herbs came with the names on the stamps and their meaning, but when I started to stamp, I didnt like the sayings on the cards for some reason, so, I cut them off and mounted them separately!

The second card uses Rosemary which symbolizes remembrance, I struggled with this one for a little while and then decided En Francais was the perfect touchfor the back ground. The sentiment is from teeny tiny wishes and the color is Rich Razzelberry, one of the new in Colors, isnt it gorgeous?

I haven't been able to get enough of purple and green together lately. Basil (blessings) is actually one of my favorite herbs, I love the smell of it. I know I colored all of my herbs purple, but I was having too much fun with the razzleberry! I also love the distressed look, with the torn papers, it adds to the natural look of the card, dont ya think?

Finally, my last card is Thyme for happiness, more torn kraft paper with purples and greens, I just cant get enough of these colors together!

Now, if you made it this far, I hope you will sign up to get my newsletter or subsribe to my blog by email and come back later this week for a super-fabulous blog candy give away.
