Blog Hop - Day 1

Mark's Finest Papers RELEASE Hop and....BLOG CANDY!!!

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 TODAY! For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, visit and comment on each of the following design team members' blogs starting tomorrow -- March 10th, 11th, and 12th. On Saturday, (March 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!

Oriental themes are not usually my go-to images, but I like this Serene Lady from Mark’s Finest Papers: Serenity Collection. I stamped her, using Palette Noir (clear embossed), onto MFP Snow Storm Smooth and colored her with Copic and Prismacolor markers. The red DP strip is from Basic Grey’s Cupcake paper pad. I found this simple layout on Page Maps, a great site for card and scrapbook layouts. I added a strip of ribbon and the Oriental charm for interest.

Not all the design team members are participating today; but to check out today’s cards visit the following blogs:
