Hot & Spicy - 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

I had to go a-googling to figure out just how I wanted to color this baby!  In the process, I learned a new word.  A ristra is a noun that means a string of dried chilies, garlic or other foodstuffs.  Boy, I tell you...I am always learning!!  I kept this one clean and simple because that's just the kind of crafter I am. 


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.


Above you will see my lovely teammates and you want to head off to Tangii's blog next.  Thanks for stopping by!

I love a CAS card and this one is great.
Toni, I didn't know what a ristra was, either. So, now I've learned something new today, too.

Especially like the border edge & paper piecing. Your card is HOT looking indeed. These make me think of Tex Mex food.
