Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop!!

Happy Happy Friday... it's even better as I have some new Serendipity stamps to show today... !! The DT is having a hop and I am the start. If you get lost long the way, go to the Serendipity blog for a list/links of everyone participating. AND there is a prize!!

We're showcasing a fabulous new die and sentiment just in time for your Christmas/Holiday cardmaking!!

For my first card I went short in width and long!! The new Dove die was cut twice and layered to give it some dimension. Added a border, ribbon, and the first "jingle bells" of the season-whoo hoo!

The inside...

Stamped the gorgeous sentiment.... don't you adore the font!!

And... the dove can be used for more than Christmas.... thinking Anniversary, Wedding... and sympathy cards.

Sentiment....


Left some room on the inside for a personal message.

Prize-- leave a comment on EACH DT members blog  for a chance to win a random drawing for $20 off your next order. Check out the Serendipity blog for all the details.

The next stop along the hop is Anya Schrier-- always makes me smile when I visit (Love her work!!) -- can't wait to see what she created!!

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