(Please scroll down to see additional posts for today.)

a lot like Christmas over at Mark's Finest Papers. Welcome to day two of the October Blog Hop! Today we are showing off projects using A Walk in the Woods and Greetings of the Season.


This set (A Walk in the Woods) would make a great companion set for Regal and Proud, released last August.


Being a Buckeye, born and raised, I have wanted a cardinal set for soooo long. I love tihs paper pieced birdie! Note the gorgeous ribbon....also available at the MFP website. Not only that, all the cardstock on these two cards can be purchased from them as well. Be sure to hop along the snowy nature trail and perhaps you'll be today's lucky winner!
