My favorite day of the month is the day my Paper Pumpkin arrives from Stampin’ Up. This is the coolest, most affordable kit ever and you can purchase the kit on a month to month basis so you don’t have to worry about a long term commitment. This month I loved the examples that came with my kit so much I didn’t want to make alternatives until I saw some darling samples on Pinterest. I  made and delivered my baskets the day after I got the kit so I used the adorable Picnic With You stamp set I got during Sale A Bration, unfortunately this stamp set is no longer available, nor is the adorable neither is the striped Dapper Denim ribbon, I’m hoping you have some in your stash:(
