Day 3: Mark's Finest Papers RELEASE Hop and....BLOG CANDY!!!

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!

My sample today features the new set, Take the Time. 

Masculine cards are often a challenge, but this set has so many wonderful images, the work is nearly done for you!  I stamped the image in Pallette Noir onto Hazelnut Tan cardstock and sponged some extra color around the edges.  I also added a brad to the center of the clock hands and added dots with a gold paint pen.  It was difficult for me not to add ribbon!!

For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, visit and comment on each of the following design team members' blogs on April 14th, 15th, and 16th. On Saturday, (April 17), a winner will be chosen FOR EACH DAY from those participants who visited all 9 blogs for that day! (3 different winners, one winner for each day.)
