My first card above, I made for the WT challenge on SCS this week and I also used our mini set, Take Time.  Using a bg stamp or creating your own bg. I think this set is fabulous for masculine cards (which I always have a hard time doing). My card below, I used mushroom colored acrylic paint (also used the new mini set). Have fun on the hop!

This is our extra set for the month. I made a TLC442 challenge card over on SCS...external frame and an internal sentiment. I kept it simple to be able to frame it with ease!

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

"Lucky You"

 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

"Take Time Mini"
