Welcome to the MFP April Blog Hop!  Today is the final day of my participation as a Guest Designer.  I want to thank Mark's Finest Paper for allowing me to be a part of this fun event.  I would love to do it again soon!

Here is the list of today's hop participants:

Nicole -
Connie –
Emily N.-
Guest Designer, Lillian (you are here)
Mark’s Finest Papers

Again, I apologize that my cards are a bit on the dark side. For this card, I used a Martha Stewart punch on both sides of this beautiful fairy image and then backed it with a maroon paper so you could better see the latice effect.

Thank you for stopping by my blog for this week's hop.  It was truly a pleasure being a Guest Designer.  Thank you MFP for inviting me to participate.  I had so much fun!

Lillian--we have really enjoyed having you as our guest designer this month. Thanks for playing along with us! And your card is beautiful. I love the punch down each side if the image and the pearls are a perfect accent. TFS

Thanks for your sweet comment and introduction on my blog. I am so happy to see your pretty cards because I am quite lacking in coloring skills and you have taught me that you can use those fine line stamps without having to color them and they look great!! Good job!
