Serendipity Stamps New Release - Bird Die

Don't you absolutely love new products?  I don't know if I am more in love with making beautiful things or just buying them some times.  I see something gorgeous and well - I just can't say no.  Well this one - if you love it - you are definitely going to use it!  Today the Serendipity Stamps Design Team is having a blog hop to celebrate the release of a brand new bird die. If you are following along with the hop you should have gotten here from Anya's blog.  If you'd like to start at the beginning a complete list can be found here on Serendipity Stamps blog (or further down in my post). 

 The new die is beautiful and so versatile - I can see this detailed beauty being used for Christmas, Weddings, Valentine's Day/Love, and  Religious events like Communion and Baptism  (as the symbol of the Holy Spirit).

I made two projects today - one for every day use - to say I love you in the most romantic way.

My second project is a holiday card in blue and tan featuring the dove a symbol of peace. 
I know you want to see all the designs showcasing the new die so I will keep it short.  You know the drill... the other DT members names and links are listed here.  Make sure you leave comments as you go. One lucky winner will be selected to win $20 off their next Serendipity Order - that's like getting this new bird die free - plus a little something extra - maybe a sentiment?  

The next stop on your hop is the sweet and talented Jenny Gropp - and let me just say - that girl can Copic color like nobody's business!!  Here's the complete list if you want to start from the beginning. 
                                                                       Julie Warner
                                                                      Vickie Zimmer
Jeanne Jachna (Thats Me!)

The winner will be announced on Mary's blog on Tuesday Sept. 2.   Have a beautiful day!
