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

Works of Art


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

Wise Men
                                               


The layout for my first card today is a favorite of mine.  I used two of the small images from today's set.


Again my second card is a regular A2 card.  Are you noticing a trend for this month?  One regular and one not so regular.  Not much of a theme, but it's the best I could do this month.  I actually used an image from another MFP set, Wealthy Fish, behind the focal panel, which is popped up with foam dots.



The extra set this month is another Oriental set.  The main image on this set is actually a background of oriental symbols.  It made a nice base for my easel.


Be sure to check out the blogs of the rest of the design team.  Remember, if you comment on their blogs, you may win one of this month's stamp sets.

Like the circle look & layers on 2nd card. Like how the green gingham ribbon complements the Bamboo. Pandas are one of my fav wild animals.
