Had a lot of fun with this set of stamps even though they might be mini but they are mighty! 
My first card is faux postage.  Don't you think they make great faux postage?  I do. Second card is a window cut out.  Cut out the window with a paper punch and stamped saying inside card to peek through window.  For the front of the card I masked off a circle for a moon and got out my blending tool to blend Ranger Distress inks.  The reason for all the birds flying around is because coming home from a trip recently it seemed we saw a lot of buzzards just circling in the sky.

Please leave comment here and at other design team blogs for your chance to win this set of stamps.  Come back tomorrow to see more fun samples.
