Sending Hedgehugs!!

Good Saturday Eve...

I had a bit of fun and a bit of time to play today...


Played with this sweet hedgehog from MFT. The background is an A2 card, scored, and added another layer of white after diecutting using MFT's bludprints 13. Then I diecut a layer using MFT's inside/out stitch rectangle stax. That sweet hedgehog was stamped on PTI seletc white, colored with copics, and die cut using the coordinating dies. 

Here's this week's MFT sketch... mine is a mirror image..

I'm also playing with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge... NEW.

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!

Happy, Happy New Year!! Wishing you a wonderful year of love, laughter, health, and success!!

Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps Challenge! We love seeing what you make with your Serendipity Stamps and Dies. The challenge begins on the first of the month with a central theme. The design team provides samples for inspiration at the beginning, and then again at the half way point of the challenge, but you get a whole month to join us! At the half way point we'll be showing another round of samples as well as celebrating with a monthly blog hop - showing you the latest products and offering another chance for you to win some goodies from Serendipity Stamps.

The rules are simple... play along using at least one Serendipity Stamps image on your submission and link it below. You don't have to have a blog to play along - you can link your designs to any on line gallery. 

Ready for our latest challenge?

SSCB#63 Anything Goes!!!! It's the perfect month for a freebie!! After all the holiday business.. just create whatever you want!! Whatever you choose just be sure to include at least one Serendipity Stamps image (stamp or die) on your design!

I was still in the Xmas mood... 


Never too early to work on next year's cards, right?!? 

I played with Serendipity's Ornament die.... love it in gold!! Just a few layers using blue, gold, and black.
