MFP Blog Hop - Covered Bridges

Hello! Welcome to the September 2011 MFP New Releases Blog Hop!

This week's new releases are: Autumn Glory, Boo To You, Covered Bridges, Get Your Broom On. For your convenience, all these sets are available TODAY at Mark's Finest Papers.

While I'm not an official member of the blog hop today, thanks for stopping by my blog to see what I've created with Covered Bridges -- which might be my favorite set this month.

My first card for today is serving double-duty. In addition to being for the MFP Blog Hop, it is also for the Stampin'B DT challenge -- to use two border punches. I used the wavy border for the top and the plaid border for the bottom -- with a snowy scene between them. After coloring the bridge scene, I added some Flower Soft for the snow on the trees and on the ground.

I thought of my second card as an inspiration challenge. When my late husband and I moved from Pennsylvania to Florida some 43 years ago, my brother gave me something to remind me of my Bucks County, Pennsylvania, roots -- that picture of various landmarks in Bucks County. As you can see, the image in the upper right-hand corner is a covered bridge. So I used some wood-grain DP to make a "frame" around the covered bridge on my card.

By the way, that picture is still hanging in my living room. Bucks County, Pennsylvania, was a great place to grow up!

So, do you want to WIN today's Featured Stamp Set: Covered Bridges? (If you don't want to wait to win, you can always purchase the sets right away! We'll substitute a set from NEXT month's release if today's winner has already purchased this set!)
