Please Hop along with us!! You have a chance to win one of these new stamp sets! Just comment on the design team members' blogs (don't forget this one) each day for more chances to win! ( You do NOT need to comment on on all the blogs each day! The names are drawn randomly.) The winner will be announced on April 04, 2015,  on the MFP Stamp Shop 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 Friday, April 03, 2015, at 10:00 PM EST.

Here it is, Friday already, and our Blog Hop is coming to an end.  My first card using today's set, Mushroom Selections, also has an interesting background techique, Partial Retiform, which is sort of a collage.

I used some other MFP Stamp Shop sets on this card also -- Fairies and Scenic Selections.  As you can see from several of my cards this week, you can mix and match MFP Stamp images and sentiments on your creations.

My second card also uses images from Fairies and Scenic Selections.  The "plaque" on my portrait has a sentiment from MFP Stamp Shop Birds and Trees.   I cut strips from a piece of patterned paper that looked like wood to create the frame.

Please visit the rest of the team members' blogs and comment for a chance to win a free stamp set. Here's the Design Team:

I hope you have enjoyed my creatioins this week -- maybe you'll even want to try one or two of those background techniques yourself.
