February Blog Hop - Day One

Mark's Finest Papers Design Team is celebrating our BRAND NEW STAMPS for the Speedy the Cat Designer Collection and Serenity Collection with a Blog Hop! They are available at Mark’s Finest Papers TODAY! For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, visit and comment on each of the design team members' blogs on February 10th, 11th, and 12th. On Saturday, (February 13th), a winner will be chosen from those who have visited all 9 blogs all three days. The winner will be announced on the Mark's Finest Papers Blog and will receive 2 Stamp Sets that will be released NEXT month. And remember, Friday night will be the New Flourishes Release at Mark's Finest Papers!

This card features the Speedy the Cat Collection: Spring and Easter 2010. I stamped the cute little Easter bunny on Snow Storm Smooth, cut him out with a Spellbinders Labels Four die, colored him with Copic markers and sponged around the outside with some purple ink. The background designer paper is from Basic Grey Wisteria Paper Pad, matted on Lemon Slice cardstock. I added some ribbon, an Easter basket charm, and the sentiment – stamped on Lemon Slice and cut out using the small Labels Four die.

Be sure to visit the blogs of the rest of the design team, commenting on each, to be in the running to receive the two stamps sets from next month.
