Blog Hop and Blog Candy, Day 3!

Mark's Finest Papers Design Team is celebrating our BRAND NEW STAMPS for the Speedy the Cat Designer Collection and Serenity Collection with a Blog Hop! They are available TODAY!

For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, visit and comment on each of the following design team members' blogs on March 10th, 11th, and 12th. On Saturday, (March 13), a winner will be chosen from those who have visited all 9 blogs all three days.

The winner will be announced on the Mark's Finest Papers Blog and will receive 2 Stamp Sets that will be released NEXT month. And remember, Friday night will be the
New Flourishes Release at Mark's Finest Papers!
My project today features the new set, Spring Roses.  I altered a planner for my Grandma to keep in her purse.  She loves roses and even gave her daughter (my Aunt) Sharon, Rose as a middle name.  Sharon passed away about 9 years ago from cancer and I know this image and sentiment will be the perfect thing to remind Granny of Sharon, and brighten her day.  All of my supplies are from Mark's Finest Papers, excluding the planner itself.  I used Prisma pencils and baby oil to color the images.

Enjoy the rest of the lovely creations today from this fabulous design team!  
Thank you so much for visiting!
Nikki- You are here!
