"You Are an Angel"

 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is


This was an easy set for me to work with.  I love anything Americana.  The colors of red, white and blue are just beautiful together.   Not only will the set be good for July 4th cards, but for both adult and children's birthdays and it is so perfect for cards to send to  our servicemen and women.  

Come back tomorrow for the last day of our blog hop.  We will be showing cards made with the classic dad set.  See you then.
