MFP Nov Blog Hop Day #1

Hello! Welcome to Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Company's November Blog Hop!
This month's New Stamp Set Releases are
Peaceful Nuthatch
A Trip to Lancaster
What a Fox


Before I get to my projects I have to say that I am very excited as this is my first official blog hop as a senior design team member for Mark's Finest Paper's.  For today we are sharing samples made with Peaceful Nuthatch.  I have to say I love the cute little nuthatch and have so much fun coloring it.  For my first card I used the larger of the two images and used colored pencils with OMS.  After cutting out the image with a nestabilities die and before removing it from the die, I sponged with memento new sprout and bamboo leaves.
Next I stole an idea from my mom (Geri)  and made a snow globe that I bought at Michaels.
 And here is the other side.

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! We will announce all three winners on Thanksgiving Day. You can go back and comment if you missed a day. The winners will be chosen at 11PM EST on Wednesday November 23, 2011.
