Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop - Day 2

Welcome to the Mark’s Finest Papers September Blog Hop! This month, we’ve added two new DT members and have shortened link lists! And…LOOK for a NEW LINK LIST TOMORROW!!!

We have 4 New Stamp Sets Released this week: Autumn Fun, Broom Rides, Stinky Situation, and Thankful Mums and Pumpkins. For your convenience, all 4 stamp sets are available for purchase TODAY!

For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, (a set that will be released NEXT month), visit and comment on each of the design team members' blogs. On Saturday, (September 11, 2010), a winner will be chosen from those participants who visited all the blogs listed for today. (There will be four different winners, one winner for each day of the blog hop. You DO NOT have to comment every day. However, the more days you comment, the more chances you have to win!) If you miss a day, you can go back and comment on each day's blogs, as the winners will be chosen Saturday morning!

Again I have created two projects with today’s set – Broom Rides.



I love these little matchbox treat boxes created with the Sizzix Bigz XL die and the Big Shot. Two of them are decorated with DP and the other two are stamped with images from Broom Rides and “buttons” from Michaels.




My hill on my card was created by cutting a piece of “grassy” DP and stamping the tree at the top. The cute little ghost is popped up on a pop-dot. After coloring the sky with chalks, I stamped this wonderful sentiment in black. Do you want to be the official “tester” of Halloween candy? What a fun job!



These jack-o-lanterns are part of my salt and pepper collection.


Be sure to visit the rest of the team to see what they did with this fun set and comment on each blog. You have a chance to win one of the stamp sets to be released next month.

Oh, I just think those boxes are so darling. I just can't pay the price to buy the die. Although, the bigger price I"m paying is not having the fun and joy of making/giving them away! I'm starting to break!
