Serendipity Stamps - March Blog Hop #2!


Welcome to the March Blog Hop!
I was in the mood to do a card with spring colors.
I just love these Little Critters dies for certain occasions!
This time its for a baby card. 
The HAPPY is from the new Happy background die.  
It is a bit smaller than the original Happy die.


Here is a closeup of the darling little giraffe.  I backed it with some
plaid paper.  The eye is done with a black gel pen.


Inside I used the SWEET die for a sentiment.  
The stitched flag die is by My Favorite Things.

The HOP Prize is a $20 Serendipity Stamps Gift Certificate

MOJO Monday 488 - G45 Portrait of a Lady


I just love the colors of the new Graphic 45 Portrait of a Lady papers.
This week's MOJO Monday 488 sketch is a simple one 
and easy to replicate using just about any paper or stamped images.


Inside I kept it simple as well with some patterned paper
and a fussy cut image. The finished size is an A2.

Why not play along in the challenge this week?!

    Serendipity Stamps - January Blog Hop!


    Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps January Blog Hop!
    The theme this month is Anything Goes!



    Lately I've been playing with Graphic 45's Nature Sketchbook 
    paper and thought they would be a good pairing with some of 
    Serendipity's floral and garden stamps.

    I decorated an envelope and tag for the HOP.



    I made a little seed packet with a subtle patterned paper and the
    Serendipity Stamp Daisy Seed Packet.  It tucks into a pocket on the big tag.
