MFP Blog Hop Day 3 - Blessings/CCEE Challenge

This month's New Stamp Set Releases are:

Relax A Bit Featured February 14
North American Woods Featured February 15
Blessings Featured February 16
Dogwood Blossoms Featured February 17


Please hop along with us! You have a chance to win one of the above stamp sets! Just comment on the DT blogs (don't forget this one), each day for more chances to win! (You do NOT have to comment on all the blogs each day! The names are drawn randomly!) All four winners will be announced on February 18, 2012 on the Mark's Finest Papers blog. You can go back and comment if you missed a day. (HINT: The more you comment, the more chances you have to win and comments on the MFP blog count twice!) The deadline for commenting is 11PM EST on Friday February 17, 2012.

My first card is also for the CCEE challenge that Shirley gave us this week -- white-on-white, with maybe a little color on the image. Have you tried those Want2Scrap nestablings? There are shapes that match many of the Spellbinders dies -- in both pearls and rhinestones.


Both of my cards today are Easter cards. This bunny doesn't need much coloring, just a little pink on his nose -- so my only coloring is on the lilies and the ground. To dress it up a bit, I added the gingham ribbon and stickpin.


Thanks for stopping by my blog again today. I hope you will visit all the rest of the team, too. Lois (that's me)  Vicky  Anne  Pat G.  Karen H.  Patty P.  Mary  Dawn M.  Marilynn  Chrissy  Karen K.  Pam  Debbie Nancy  Bonnie  Harriet  Kathy  Brenda  Mark's Finest Papers

Sorry, I was commenting on yesterday's card, too! I like the rugged look of the animal stamps. The Easter stamps and cards are very, very pretty (and not masculine at all!)

I love your lilies in the soft color and shading. The ribbon and stick pin added a great touch to finish off the bunny card. I love this set and your cards are gorgeous.
