Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop- Day 4

Welcome to the MFP September Blog Hop! This month, we’ve added two new DT members and have shortened link lists!

We have 4 New Stamp Sets Released today: Autumn Fun, Broom Rides, Stinky Situation, and Thankful Mums and Pumpkins. For your convenience, all 4 stamp sets are available for purchase TODAY!

For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, (a set that will be released NEXT month), visit and comment on each of the following design team members' blogs TODAY. On Saturday, (September 11, 2010), a winner will be chosen from those participants who visited all the blogs listed for today. (There will be four different winners, one winner for each day of the blog hop. You DO NOT have to comment every day. However, the more days you comment, the more chances you have to win!) If you miss a day, you can go back and comment on each day's blogs, as the winners will be chosen Saturday morning!

Today we are featuring the "Thankful Mums and Pumpkins" stamp set:
For my card, I used one of the sentiments and the large mum from the "Thankful Mums and Pumpkins" stamp set.  I colored the flower with Copic markers than added a small amount of glitter to the center.  I was amazed at how easy this flower was to color!  The papers used are Hazelnut Tan and Late Afternoon Sun from Mark's Finest Papers, and patterned papers from My Mind's Eye. 


Be sure to visit the Mark's Finest Papers blog tomorrow to see the blog hop winners!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1.  Paper Play Challenges- "Autumn is a Comin"
2.  Freshly Brewed Challenges- use brown
3.  Anything Goes- autumn theme
4.  Tuesday Throwdown- celebrate fall

  10. So beautiful, Claudine! I love the colors and DP you chose for this card. Was the mum truly easy to color? Because it really scared me off. Of course, I don't have Copics or anything, so coloring for me would be with Prismacolor pencils and that would mean constant stopping to resharpen for all of those fine petals. I think you did a FAB job on this :)
