Serendipity - New Stamps Blog Hop!

We have some new stamps to show you today!  The Serendipity Spring Release has flowers, new sentiments and a cute mason jar! If you comment on each BLOG you could win a $20 gift code for your next purchase of Serendipity Stamps online!  You have until midnight on Sunday, April 27 to comment.  
The winner will be posted on Mary's Blog on Monday April 28.

I have 3 cards to show you today.  Using a Stamp-a-ma-jig helps place the flowers in the jar just right.  This Mother's Day card has some shiny accents on it.

I used Crackle Accents on the jar and VIVA Gold pen for the flower centers.  

The new Mother's Day stamp adorns the inside.  It reminds me of my cross stitching days!
 Finished size is an A-2.

This card has cute aprons hanging from a clothes line for you to color or emboss!  I love the cherries on the blue apron.  A great image for Mother's Day for someone who cooks.

My third card uses the new Flower Pops stamp set.  
I stamped them on patterned paper and cut them out.  

Finished size is 4 1/4 square.

Next up on the HOP is  Pauline!
