Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop- Day 1

Welcome to the MFP December Blog Hop! This month, we are releasing 4 NEW SETS!

And…LOOK for a NEW LINK LIST TOMORROW!!!

We have 4 New Stamp Sets Released: Hearts, Hearts, Hearts, Nature's Postage Due; Hello Sunshine and Take a Peek. 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, (December 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 celebrating the release of the "Hearts, Hearts, Hearts" stamp set: 
I wanted my card to have a clean and crisp look.  I stamped the flower wreath and sentiment onto white card stock, then colored the wreath with Copic markers.  I used layers of white and Mamma's Favorite Purple card stock by Mark's Finest Papers.  The white layers were embossed with two different Cuttlebug embossing folders.  I completed the card by rounding the corners and adding rhinestones and a bow made with satin ribbon.  The "Hearts, Hearts, Hearts" stamp set, card stock, ribbon, and Copic markers are all available at Mark's Finest Papers. 

Head over to the Mark's Finest Papers blog to see today's blog hop line-up.  Make sure to join us tomorrow for day 2 of the blog hop!
