Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company Blog Hop Day 1 - Lighthouses

Hello! Welcome to the first day of Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Company's March Blog Hop! 
This month's New Stamp Set Releases are

Lighthouses Featured March 20
Flaps My Wattles Featured March 21
Wild Horses Featured March 22
Mother's Magnolias Featured March 23

As noted above, today we are featuring the new Lighthouses set.  I used the largest lighthouse image in the set and a birthday sentiment.  What fun this was to color!!  I kept it clean and simple, letting my lighthouse shine (pun intended).  I did a little embossing, some die cutting and applied a couple of rhinestones and then called it a card.  

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 four winners will be announced on March 24, 2012 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!) The deadline for commenting is 11PM EST on Friday March 23, 2012.
