The special stamp set we have for you this month is:
"You Are an Angel"

 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

Its now June, and if you haven't had a vacation yet this year you are probably counting the days until you get to have one.  Thats why today's set is perfect for this time of year.  Its called "Need a Vacation".

I had fun with this set and some beach themed papers.  Watercolouring seemed like the natural choice for these images.

I had a lot of fun playing with bright colours on these cards.  My Glossy Accents on the second card wasn't as neat as I would like but I still think its pretty.  

If you are enjoying these sets we are showing this week visit the Mark's Finest Papers store to get some for yourself.  In addition to these stamps they have lots of great sets along with tons of card making and crafting supplies.  And don't forget to come back tomorrow to see the next set we are showcasing.

But, the fun is not over! Now that you've had a look at my contribution, you should hop over to the rest of the DT and see what they've come up with.  The MFP Senior DT is a very creative bunch and you won't be disappointed!  See you tomorrow!  :)
