All four winners will be announced on July 21, 2012 on the Mark's Finest Papers blog. You can go back and comment if you missed a day.

Here we are on the last day of the MFP Blog Hop.  I hope you have gotten some inspiration from the design team.

While my first card is technically a clean and simple one, it does have several layers.



My second card is a step card, but a little different than the others I made this month.  The steps are in the center.  I saw this type of card at a recent stamp show and thought I'd like to give it a try.


My friend's kitchen is decorated with items painted with chili peppers.  I thought I'd give her these two cards in case she needs a few more!

Be sure to check out the rest of the design team members' blogs to see what they did with this "hot" set.  And make sure you comment for your final chance to win a free stamp set this week.
