Blog Hop Day 1


Mark's Finest Papers Design Team is celebrating our FIRST Blog Hop! How could we make it a REAL celebration? How about giving away some Blog Candy?

For your chance to win, visit and comment on each of the following design team members' blogs on December 9th and 10th. Then, on Friday, a winner will be chosen from those who have visited all 7 blogs both days. The winner will receive 2 BRAND NEW Stamp Sets, 5 packages of Mark's Finest Papers and 5 Satin ribbons! And remember, Friday night will be the New Flourishes Release at Mark's Finest Papers! The winner will be announced on the Mark's Finest Papers Blog on Friday.

Good Luck!

I hope you like my card using the Doves images from Mark's Finest Papers. I colored them with prismacolor markers as well as glitter pens. I used the cutting outside the box technique and the colors Ripened Tomatoe and Speedy the Cat Black. I love the lush sating ribbon, don't you? Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back tomorrow to see what else I have made!

About Me

My photo
Hi everyone! My Name is Nancy Levine, known as NANCYRUTH on SCS. I have began stamping 20 years ago, though I put everything in the attic for about 10 of those during the hectic years of my single motherhood. I went to a stamping up party about 5 years ago and the stamping flame was rekindled and i have stamped almost every day since then. I work full time in a lighting store and enjoy my career in sales which allows me to fund my crafting habits. I am also a beader and spend my free time stamping, swimming and making jewelry! I look forward to charting my creative journey through my new blog. Fast forward.... After 13 months of unemployment due to the economic downturn I completed my Therapeutic Recreation certification and now work in a skilled nursing facility creating and implementing recreational programs for the residents. I also had the priviledge of working at Beadz Boutique in Darien Ct. where I fine tuned many of my beading skills!
