Serendipity Stamps - Spring Fever

Hi friends!  I hope everyone is doing well!  I can't believe it's March already!  It really doesn't feel like Spring here in the Chicago area.  There is still snow on the ground and no sign of anything green.  It's going to be a little longer before anything can make it through that!  But every day puts us that much closer to warmer weather right?  Our theme this month at Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog is Spring Fever!    A new challenge begins on the first Wednesday of every month.  This time our theme is Spring Fever.  Mary usually asks the DT to focus on a certain theme or technique and this time we all made St. Patrick's Day projects.

This clover die was released last year.  It has a wonderful celtic knot design, and lots of little hearts on the stem.   There's also a new "Lucky" die this year that has a little clover on it. 
I made this "Lucky" sentiment from little alphabet stickers.  I love adding pins and little embellishments on my designs.
Did you know that Serendipity stocks dies from other manufacturers?  The green circle doily on my card is the Cheery Lynn Horizon Boutique Circle Stacker, and the little scallop trim on the top orange piece features the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Border.  They're both in stock in the web store.

Would you like to see more designs to inspire you for the challenge?  Just click on the design team names below to jump to their blog.  We also have a special guest this month... Karen Dunbrook from Snippets blog!  Hope you'll hop over and say hi!


Now for the bad news... no sale this week.   Mary had a bad fall and hurt her back.  She's recovering from surgery so she's out of commission for a while.  We wish her the best and hope she's feeling as good as new QUICK!

I love your card. It includes both Spring with the flower background and St. Patrick's Day with the shamrock die and embellishment. A great use of dies and embellishments. Great Job!!! TFS

This is so pretty & springy, Jeanne! You always have such a fab way w/ designer papers. Your little charm is the perfect addition. I thought I had one, but I couldn't find it anywhere. Love it!
