For your convenience, all these sets are available TODAY at Mark's Finest Papers.

So, do you want to WIN today's Featured Stamp Set: All Aboard? (If you don't want to wait to win, you can always purchase the sets right away! We'll substitute a set from NEXT month's release if today's winner has already purchased this set!)

For your chance to win: Comment on the following Design Team members' blogs TODAY before midnight EDT. There will be ONE random winner chosen from the comments on today's Blog Hop blogs. That winner will win ALL ABOARD. We will announce the winner's name on tomorrow's blog post.

For my sample using ALL ABOARD, I made a slider card, now this was my first try and I found the info on how make it in a Cardmaker magazine. It was fun to try something new. To make the wacky tracks, I just bent the stamp on my block.


Here it is with the train slide forward. Looks like it's bouncing off the tracks!!! Better slow that puppie down!! LOL


Be sure to check out the rest of the teams wonderful samples.
