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 "Hello Sunshine" stamp set:
To compliment the sun stamp, I wanted to use bright and summery colors for this card.  The papers used are Pacific Point from Stampin Up, shimmery gold and tango from The Paper Company, and Mediterranean Summer patterned paper.  I embossed the sun then sponged it with Tim Holtz distress inks.  I cut out the face, applied gold Smooch on the edges, then popped it up.  I stamped the sentiment with Staz On ink, as the mango paper is somewhat slick.  I completed the card by adding shimmery ribbons and a gold border made with a Martha Stewart punch.  The stamp set, Tim Holtz distress inks, Smooch, and Staz On ink are all available at Mark's Finest Papers.
