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 "Take A Peek" stamp set:

When I saw these cute woodland creature stamps, I couldn't resist having them "peek out" of a tree.  I embossed a piece of Desert Sand card stock from Mark's Finest Papers, punched out two circles and an oval, ran it through a Tim Holtz wood embossing folder, then rubbed several brown ink pads over it.  I colored the creatures with Copic markers then mounted them and the stamped sentiment behind the "wood" panel.  The other panels used are Cajun Craze by Stampin Up and Deepest Mahogany by Mark's Finest Papers.  I completed the card by adding greenery made with a Martha Stewart punch and punched rings around the knotholes.
