 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:
"Marsh Silhouettes"



 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is
"Lily of the Valley"
                                                    

Today's set is a pretty one called "Marsh Birds":


I love this set so much I made three cards, water colouring with water based markers used on each.  This set is perfect for water colouring!  :)




I love the blue heron with the fish patterned paper.  And the sentiments are perfectly punny!





For this card I took advantage of the pre-printed collage on the Echo Park patterned paper.  It works perfectly with the pink flamingo, looks great, and saves time! :)




Its always nice to have a blank card on hand for unexpected events. :)


I hope you enjoyed my cards, but the fun isn't over!  You still have all of the rest of Mark's Finest Papers Senior DT to visit!  There is lots of inspiration to be had....



And don't forget to visit the Mark's Finest Paper's Store, where you will find all of the May sets, and lots of other lovely sets.  There are also lots of supplies to go along with your stamps.  Why not click on over and have a look?  See you tomorrow!
