Serendipity Stamps Blog #2- November!!

Oh my word.... It's November... are you getting ready for Thanksgiving and 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 Miriam Napier's blog but, if you got lost along the way I have a full list below. 

For today, it's all about winter, brrr...

This card was created using the Branch die which was die cut in black and the Birds Looking Up die also die cut in black. The background is a wood embossing folder that I sponged with gray ink. The Winter die, from the Seasons die set, was cut three times using black, gray, and white- layered "off set" a little to show all three colors. 

Here's a little close up of one of the birds and the Winter die.

Here's my next card....

This card was also created using a set from a new illustrator at Serendipity Stamps... isn't that font fun!! This For Unto Us set comes with the one Nativity image and several sentiments that coordinate. 

Love the season but, not the cold!!!

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!!

AND.... there is a sale going on!! Wed 11/15 – Sun 11/19 all items (stamps and dies!)  in the Autumn, Halloween, and Thanksgiving categories will be 20% off.  
Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!

  Have a great day... hugs, Vickie!!

I love the classy black, white and gray and how the embossing makes me think of the wind blowing! And the Nativity card is so sweet in it's simplicity!

Two beautiful cards indeed! I really like the first one though with the birds on a branch and all the texture in the background.

Love your cards. The latest winter card certainly made me feel the chill of the snow season here in the Southern Hemisphere!
