Mark's Finest Papers RELEASE Hop and....BLOG CANDY!!!

** I am so sorry this is going up late-- I had it scheduled for 12:01 a.m. and it didn't post like it was supposed to! **

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 card today features the brand spankin' new set, Ferns and Chickadee!  I colored the bird with Copics and Prisma pencils and tried to do my best robin impression to go with the robin's egg blue eggs in the nest.  I trimmed them out and adhered the nest with adhesive, and the bird I popped out with a few 3D dots.  The Nestie is new and called Fair Isle Pendant.  All of my materials are available at Mark's Finest Papers!

Enjoy the rest of the lovely creations today from this fabulous design team!  
I hope to see you back here tomorrow for more new releases!
Nikki- You are here!
