Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop #1- December

Oh my word.... It's December... Did  you have a great Thanksgiving and are you getting ready for Christmas??? Me, I can't believe it's almost here!!

It's time for the Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop! We're changing it up this year- there will be two hops each month as usual and there will be opportunities to win $ to purchase Serendipity Stamps. The design team will be showing you the latest products and offering a chance for you to win some goodies from Serendipity Stamps.

You should have arrived here from Julie Warner's blog but, if you got lost along the way I have a full list below. 

For today, it's all about winter [again :-)] brrr...



I decided to use the Tall Trees- Medium and Small in who different kinds of cards. The first is a traditional Christmas card- with my first "bells" of season!! The Joy die was cut three times, layered, and popped up with microfoam dots for a little dimension. 


 In the close up, you can see the detail of the ground around the trees- Love!!


For my second card, I used the Tall Tress for a Thank-You card. Versatile for the season- nontraditional season colors but, you may have a few "Thank Yous" to send after the holidays.


For the sun, I used Serendipity's Retro Starburst Cling set- fun, huh!! I wanted to show that the set can be versatile and not just for graphic cards. 

Looking for some awesome inspiration?   


AND... there are always prizes. One random comment along the hop will receive a $20 gift code to the Serendipity Stamps store. You have from today until Sunday to leave your comments. Mary will announce the winner on the Serendipity Stamps blog on Monday!!

  Have a great day... hugs, Vickie!!
