Mark's Finest Papers Design Team is celebrating our BRAND NEW STAMPS for the Speedy the Cat Designer Collection and Serenity Collection with a Blog Hop! They are available TODAY!

For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, visit and comment on each of the following design team members' blogs on February 10th, 11th, and 12th. On Saturday, (February 13), a winner will be chosen from those who have visited all 9 blogs all three days.

The winner will be announced on the Mark's Finest Papers Blog and will receive 2 Stamp Sets that will be released NEXT month. And remember, Friday night will be the New Flourishes Release at Mark's Finest Papers!
Good Luck!

I used the set *Spring and Easter 2010* to create this ethereal butterfly card. The technique is called a Wiper Card and the little piece on the top pops up wehn you open it! I think they are so much fun! I stamped the butterfly in black staz on on basic grey dp, and my other butterflies are embossed in gold and colored with a gold gel pen. I hope you enjoy this breath of spring, even if the groundhog says there will be six more weeks of winter!

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!
