 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

Today's set is great for those with Firefighters in their lives, or maybe just loved ones who love firetrucks (like my little boy, lol).  Today's set is called "Fire Fighter"

I decided to focus on the two largest images in the set:

I enjoyed watercolouring these images, and they pop against the black background.  I decided to use a kraft base as I thought it kept the cards from looking to dark and dreary.  I couldn't resist adding some glitter pen to the badges on the hats and the axe as well.

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!  :)
