Blog Hop Info and The King

Today Mark's Finest Papers is releasing its newest sets AND having a blog hop.  Be sure to go HERE to begin the hop.  For my card I used the new set called Bearded Iris.  This is one gorgeous set.....and irises can be so many wonderful colors.  Now, after checking out the rest of my post (of course I want you to see it all....lol!!!), be sure to go to Mark's Finest Papers Blog to begin the blog hop.

The Teapot Tuesday Challenge on SCS today involves making cards with guitars.  The destination for our cards this week is someone who loves guitars.  Well, the only guitar image I have is a stamp of Elvis's guitar, so I went with that.  The stamps used on this card are mostly from the now defunct Cornish Heritage Farms.  A couple of others were bought online years ago and have no company name on the stamps. 

I must admiit that for a change I REALLY like the way this card came out....hope the recipient feels the same way.
