Mark's Finest Papers



I always find it a challenge to make more masculine cards but the images in this set can go either way, with a very fluffy cat or with some great dog images. The cat would have been easier for me to use so I thought I would challenge myself and make a 'guy' card. I think the guys in my life must get tired of flowers. :)

Here is a card I made for this last VSN with a set preview, just giving you a quick look again this set again, using it in a different layout.


If you didn't start at the beginning of the hop, visit Samantha, who is at the top of the list above. If you've already been hopping, you would have arrived from Debbie Seyer's blog and your next stop after this one will be Faith! Good luck and happy hopping!
