Mark's Finest Papers November Blog Hop Day 1

Welcome to the MFP November Blog Hop! This month, we are releasing 6 NEW SETS!
And…LOOK for a NEW LINK LIST TOMORROW!!!
We have 6 New Stamp Sets Released: Brick Wall, Bells on Bobtail, Christmas Postage Due, Bold & Free, Musical Holiday and Welcome Home. For your convenience, all 6 stamp sets are available for purchase TODAY!
For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, (a set that will be released NEXT month), visit and comment on each of the following design team members' blogs TODAY. On Saturday, (November 13, 2010), a winner will be chosen from those participants who visited all the blogs listed for today. (There will be four different winners, one winner for each day of the blog hop. You DO NOT have to comment every day. However, the more days you comment, the more chances you have to win!)
If you miss a day,
you can go back and comment on each day's blogs, as the winners will be chosen Saturday morning.
Okay on with the fun stuff!  Here are my samples for Brick Wall
This is also my sample for the Color Challenge that I am Hostessing over at Splitcoast Stampers this week.  I chose one of my favorite color combos - Red, Turquoise and White.  Don't these colors just work for this set of stamps!
I originally had made this sample (forgetting I needed the sample for the cc) so I am just showing how versatile this set is with different colors!  A little spotlighting going on with a border punch and you have an entire different looking card!

I went CAS with my sample for this set Bells on Bobtail  I FINALLY found a white gel pen that WORKS!  (Glaze) Good heavens but I have about 10 - that just do.not.work. You can see the little white dots that I added for some fun.  I also paper pieced the bell with some silver paper. That's it for me today.  Be sure to check out the rest of the team~  See you tomorrow.
