Please hop along with us! You have a chance

The names are drawn randomly!) All four winners will be announced on December 1, 2012 on the Mark's Finest Papers 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 11PM EST on Friday November 30, 2012.

My cards made using today's set are quite simple.  The first has a feminine feel, using SC353 rotated, and I think would work for a new job card.  I just stamped in black Versafine on pink card. 


The second was stamped onto watercolour paper and then the background painted with watercolour pencils.  Don't forget to check out the rest of the team's posts for today and please come back tomorrow.



As you all know November is the time to gear up for Christmas shopping. So many sales and crowds, well stick with us we have some great deals for you.


 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:

  2. I like the contrast of the stark buildings against the flowery DP on your first card. I think my favorite is the second one though. I like the plain embossed background (super embossing folder, BTW) with the bridge/city scene.
