Serendipity Stamps - JANUARY BLOG HOP!


It's BLOG HOP time again over at Serendipity Stamps!  We've changed things up a bit and going forward, the HOP will be on the third Wednesday of the month.  To enter to win you can leave comments through Sunday, January 24.  The prize is a $20 gift certificate to Serendipity Stamps.  Mary will announce the winner on her blog on Monday January 25th.

We have a great new Balloon die to show you!


Who doesn't love a party?
The Design Team theme is Birthday AND stripes.  I added stripes to my 
background paper to tie in with the papers I used for the balloons.  After die
cutting the balloons 4 times with different colored papers, I pieced them
back into a white background.


Inside my card I die cut CELEBRATE into my white layer and
backed it with blue paper to show through the word.

Finished card size is an A-2.

Next on the HOP is the talented Vickie Zimmer!
