MFP July Blog Hop - Day 2

Welcome to the Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company

July Blog Hop! 

This month's New Stamp Set Releases are

 Featured July 15 - Chinese Take Out 
Featured July 16 - Coneflowers & Roses

 Featured July 17 - Snowflakes
Featured July 18 - Sun and Moon & Heavenly Harmony
Today's sets are right up my street.  I love colouring flowers and cards with flowers are ones I am able to use.  No fancy sentiments just nice and clean with some die cut shapes.  The first 4 cards were made whilst on vacation and I even used a little wire mesh on the red rose one donated by my friend Jules. 
The blue rose was made when I got home - for our anniversary later in the month.  It is actually a richer blue than in the photo.  All the colouring was done with Prismacolor pencils and Zest. 


Please hop along with us! You have a chance to win one of the above stamp sets! Just comment on the following blogs (don't forget this one), each day for more chances to win! (You do NOT have to comment on all the blogs each day! The names are drawn randomly!) All six winners will be announced on 
July 19, 2014 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!)
