Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company Blog Hop Day 4 - Mother's Magnolias

Hello! Welcome to the fourth and final 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

I think today's sample card could work well for a variety of occasions, so I didn't stamp a sentiment inside.  I originally made this as a Mother's Day card and then pondered the idea of it as an Anniversary card as well.  I think of my husband as a protector, teacher and friend, as well.  However, my mother might really appreciate the lace, rhinestones and border punches more than my hubby.  I think I will work that sentiment into a more masculine card on the next go round!

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.
