Mark's Finest Papers May Release . . . American Made



Hi everyone! As we know blogger was acting wonky recently and this post disappeared as did some other things . . .crazy!

Anyway, today is the fourth day of the Mark's Finest Papers May release hop! Hop, hop, hop. The weather in many parts of the country is beautiful, so I would imagine a lot of folks are outdoors. I still have seeds to plant!

But I want to show you these cards from the last set being introduced this month, American Made. Very patriotic and you can create a lot of interesting cards with it. The eagle card uses the cracked glass technique and a rosette that I learned how to make from a tutorial on Becca Feeken's blog, thank you Becca!

And thanks for looking~! The link back to Mark's Finest Papers is right here for the other cards created by the design team. They are beauties, you don't want to miss out on seeing them!
