 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"


My first card uses both today's set, All Postal, and this month's mini set, Big Cupcake.  I added some crystal lacquer to the hearts.


My second card is pretty simple also.  I made a smaller postcard and mounted it with pop-dots on the purple DP.  I added some bling to dress it up a little bit, and I was finished.


I hope you have gotten some inspiration from our blog hop this week.  Make sure you continue today's hop and comment as often as you can for a chance to win a free stamp set.  PattyLois (that's_me), Vicky, Jane,  Debbie,  Pam,  Pat,  Thrifty_Stamper,  MariLynn,  Karen,

These are both really cute! I think that Big Cupcake works really well with this new postal set! I love the crocus and the shading you did around your stamp!

That first postcard is just adorable with the beautiful cupcake! Your red background is perfect! The crocus is so pretty, and I really like the touch of color that you bordered it with. It makes the "stamp" stand out!

Lois,
Two wonderful cards. I especially like the second card - with the pretty and tropical looking DP - the postcard could be coming from some wonderful, exotic place!
