12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!!

Speedy the Cat at Mark's Finest Papers likes to get a head start on special Christmas gifts and memories for friends and family. He gathered the design team at Mark's Finest Papers to bring you 12 days of exciting paper crafting gift ideas to get that holiday mojo flowing. The hop runs for 12 consecutive days, starting October 17th! Begin your holiday hop at Speedy's home base, the Mark's Finest Papers blog and relax with a cup of eggnog (or sprig of catnip, your choice) as Speedy leads you though a short, daily hop. You'll find your holiday paper crafting ideas and supplies at Mark's Finest Papers. Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop! We have four samples each day for our hop! Please visit each of the following blogs today for holiday inspiration! Start off  on the MFP Blog for more inspiration!

My sample coasters are below:

I got some old plaster tiles long ago and have intended to stamp them with a wedding theme
for my son and his wife....who have been married now for 4 years!!  Time to get my act on the road.

I airbrushed some Copic markers for a base color and then stamped
and colored the images with Copics as well.  I applied several
coats of sealer and affixed felt bumpers on the bottom.

These will fit into a small table with a grid when I finish all 12 of them.
Until then they will serve very well as coasters.
I used Marks Finest Papers stamp set titled 
"Magnolia Wedding"
for this project.
You will find the set by clicking

Thanks so much for visiting!
