Welcome to the last day of the hop!  I hope you enjoyed viewing the new releases with us this week!

I have three cards to share with you today. First up is my little scene using MFP a HC 140lb Premium White paper for my base and clouds.  I love  the quality of this paper.  It's a heavy weight, perfect for bases and if you enjoy creating CAS in white you will love the look of your finished project when using this paper. 

This little guy is drawn perfectly to add a little paper pieced wing!

Next up my little birthday snapshot:

For my last card I did a little experimenting with the stamps.  Can you find the tree?

If you guessed it's the flower petals you guessed correct!  I stamped 10 trees, heat embossed them with white EP then inked them and layered them into a shape of a flower.  

Thanks for spending some of your time with me this week!  This is the last day to leave a comment on my blog, my teammate's blogs and Mark's Finest Paper & Stamps a HC blog for your chance  to win today's stamp set!
