 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:
"Love Script"

The mini stamp set we have for you this month is
"Big Cupcake"


As you may have guessed by the title, the first set we have for you this month is St. Patrick's Day themed:

I love that there are so many sentiments to choose from for this set and I love the images.  Here is what I came up with:

I am continuing with my CAS theme.  I thought a white base would be perfect to set off the green four leaf clover.  Once coloured and cut out, I added a touch of glitter by adding some glitter pen and smudging it before it was dry.  Some Glossy Accents (another theme this month) and twine finished it off.  

The centre is also simple with just a sentiment:

With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner this would be a perfect set to add to your stamp collection, after all everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day!  But this isn't the only great set this month, make sure you check out the Mark's Finest Paper's Store to see what other great sets and supplies they have to offer.
