Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company Blog Hop Day 2 - Flaps My Wattles

Hello! Welcome to Day 2 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

For today's sample, I bring you 'Mark's Finest' barred rock chickens fresh from the new Flaps My Wattles set.  I stamped these birds, colored them minimally, and fussy cut them.  Next, I drew my own speech bubble to fit the sentiment and cut that out.  Finally, I gave my birds some scenery via some distressed hills and a framed sunshiny day.

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.
