Serendipity Stamps - DECEMBER Blog Hop!

If you are hopping along with us you 
should have arrived here from:
Mary's Blog

The HOP prize is a $20 gift certificate to one commenter randomly selected from all the blogs!   You can leave comments through December 25th.  
The winner will be announced on Mary's blog on December 26th.

Our Blog Hop theme is THANKS this month.  
I used the Herringbone technique for my background 
using strips that are 1/2" wide.
Check out the tutorial on SplitcoastStampers.
You can't see my SPARKLE but I highlighted some of the 
elements on the patterned paper with a clear Wink of Stella pen.

Inside my card is the You Make me Happy image colored with Copics.
The finished card size is 4" square.

My next cards are done on Kraft card stock to show off the
wonderful detail of the flowers.

To show off the lovely detail of this Queen Anne's Lace stamp I
stamped it in Versafine on Kraft paper.

The small version of the stamp is on the inside.  The finished size
of this card is 4" x 5 1/2".

Here is an A-2 in the same format with a stitched frame around it.  
I omitted the upper butterfly so I could stamp the Thanks so much sentiment.
The center panel is popped up.

Again, inside I stamped the small version of the butterfly bush, 
upper butterfly included this time!

And completing the set is the lovely water lily!

The finished size of this one is just 4 3/4" x 3 1/4".

Your first card (quilt) is so perfect for a winter-given card.
It just makes me want to snuggle down for a nap under the bright colors.

What a cool quilted look and I am in love with the elegance of Black and kraft and white! (I also love your blog header!!)

Love the crazy quilt card.
So bright and colorful.
the plain cards are great.
I don't know why we think
everything has to be colored in.
thanks for sharing
Merry Christmas and Happy New year
