Asian Delights - A Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company Blog Hop


Welcome to Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Company's 
    July Blog Hop! 

This month's New Stamp Set Releases are
Asian Delights Featured July 17
Wild & Free Featured July 18
Garden Art Featured July 19
Hot & Spicy Featured July 20


I created a couple of cards with today's featured set.  I really loved the Asian theme and I wanted to keep my cards simple and uncluttered.  I have just begun to share about my mother's cancer and her healing process.  She is currently undergoing chemotherapy and it isn't easy for her, although she probably wouldn't say so.  I made these cards to support for her.  I opted to stamp the hope symbol repeatedly and used the color associated with her cancer type.  Of course, when I looked it up I found a couple of colors mentioned, so I made a card with each color.





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 July 21, 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 July 20, 2012.
