Speedy Fox and Friends - My State

Today's Speedy Fox and Friends challenge on the Mark's Finest Papers blog is to make something depicting your state.  In my back yard I have a hibiscus bush, and it just so happens that MFP,aHC has a brand-new stamp set filled with these beautiful flowers -- Humming Along.  I confess I've never seen a hummingbird in my yard, but I Googled "hummingbirds in Florida" and found that three species of hummingbirds do indeed live in Florida.  The ruby-throated hummingbird is the most populous.


We'd love to see what reminds you of YOUR state.  Make a card and link it up on the MFP Blog -- you could win a free stamp set.  If you use MFP stamps, you get two chances to win!

Stamps:  Mark's Finest Papers - Humming Along
Paper:  MFP Evergreen Mist, Strawberry Freeze, Snow Storm Smooth, Deep Olive
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  Copic markers, Fiskars Grass border punch, MS Fence border punch

A gorgeous card, Lois. I love those beautifully colored hibiscus. I like the step card and the fence with the grass in the front.
