MFP Blog Hop - Pucker Up

Hello! Welcome to Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Company's December Blog Hop!

This month's New Stamp Set Releases are

Pucker Up Featured December 13
Pussy Willows Featured December 14
Ice and Snow Featured December 14
New Pines Featured December 15

I like doing fun folds, so my first card for this month's blog hop is a gatefold card. I used the large lemon image for my focal panel, coloring it with Copic markers. The patterned paper is from Basic Grey's Nook and Pantry paper pad. How appropriate was that paper with its sliced lemons and other fruit.

For my second card I used the smaller lemons and cut them out with circle nesties, matted in two different papers from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie DP pad. I punched the top of the background paper with an EK Success border punch.

Please hop along with us! You have a chance to win one of the above stamp sets! Just comment on the following blogs (don't forget this one), each day for more chances to win! We will announce all four winners on December 16, 2011 on the Mark's Finest Papers blog. You can go back and comment if you missed a day. The winners will be chosen at 11PM EST on Thursday December 15, 2011.
