Serendipity Stamps - MAY Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps MAY Blog Hop!  
Spring is flying by and I can't believe it is already MAY!

You should have arrived here from the talented:


It seems a lot of us chose this cute hammock image for the hop!  I decided to do a Shaker Card with mine.  I had a plastic disc from Impression Obsession that I put some green Flower Soft in.  I die cut the circle out of my white layer and put it over the disc.  Can you see the loose "grass" inside?  Some of it stuck on the background due to static.  I am hoping the little pieces will drop!


Inside I stamped the image again in blue.  
This would make a great retirement card!

Special: Free Shipping on US orders of $15 or more.   
Good from Friday May 1 to Sunday May 3rd.
Please leave comments through May 3rd for a chance to win a 
$20 Gift Certificate for Serendipity Stamps.  
Mary will announce a winner on Monday, May 4th on her blog.

The 50% off stamp of the month is Aprons!

Oh my, love your sweetly colored hammock, and the shaker is brilliant! Wonderful stamping of half the image on the inside. Say it again, brilliant!

Oh how I love your card! Fun to make it a shaker. You have inspired me to make a Fourth of July card with this stamp! Or at least all red white and blue based on your red stripes and blue blanket. Love this Miriam.

Love hos you framed the shaker element. I would never have thought of putting the round shaker in a square frame. Thanks for the inspiration.
