Serendipity Oct Blog Hop #1!

Welcome to the Oct #1 Blog Hop
 for Serendipity Stamps
To make my Thanksgiving card, I stamped & colored the Wheat Sheaf then die cut the white panel. I wanted to add a little something extra so I die cut the 3 small squares along the top, added a tan frame, then added a stamped image from the Retro Starburst set.  For the greeting, I stamped part of the little Thanksgiving word then die cut the Greetings &  Believe words & did a snip & paste to put them together & make Give. This is also for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge & THIS was my inspiration.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Please be sure to comment on all the is much appreciated & also increases your chances of winning!

    This design makes me think this wheat sheaf has been gifted outside someone’s door, very pretty.

  2. Love the way you pieced together your “Give” die cut! And love those 3 little “windows” – using the stamped image inside makes them look like little shutters!

  3. LOVE the depth & texture you gave this card. I can see why the wheat sheaf is one of Serendipity’s most popular stamps.
