Blog Hop Day Two PREVIEW WEEK for Mark's Finest Papers

We are trying a new format for our Blog Hops. Starting this month the Hop will last 2 weeks. 3 days the first week ( PREVIEW WEEK HOP ) and 3 days the second week ( ACTUAL BLOG HOP ). The DT will be divided also so you will have less blogs to Hop each day and you will have 2 weeks to make all your comments. You won't miss any DT creations because those not included in the DT Hop blog list will have their cards posted here on the blog. Let's get started. 

December Preview Week

This month's New Stamp Set Releases are





 Featured Dec. 3
Lots of Words

Featured Dec. 4
Mini Swallowtail

Featured Dec. 5

Please hop along with us! You have a chance to win one of the above stamp sets! Just comment on the following blogs (don't forget this one), each day for more chances to win! (You do NOT have to comment on all the blogs each day! The names are drawn randomly!) All three winners will be announced on Dec. 14, 2013 on the Mark's Finest Papers blog. You can go back and comment if you missed a day. (HINT: The more you comment, the more chances you have to win and comments on the MFP blog count twice!) The deadline for commenting is 10 PM EST on Friday Dec.. 13, 2013.
