SSCB#42 Monograms & Verse

Did I tell you?  I'm doing a little renovation with my craft room.  DH is adding some kitchen cabinets and a big counter top for me to work on!  The down side is moving everything out of the way - out with the old and in with the new.  I won't tell you how many trips I made to the good will drop box with some of my older things.  I hope they find a new crafty home!  So far I have four new cabinets - counter top is on back order... so still a work in progress.   Yes! I promise some photos when it's all together!! 

We're at the half way point of the latest Serendipity Stamps Challenge.    This month the challenge is "Monograms & Verse".    We thought this would be a clever way for you to "stretch your stamps and dies".  Think of all the word dies you have.  You could make a neat monogram just by snipping off a few letters.   You could mask off letters from your sentiment stamps too.  There are so many beautiful fonts and initials to choose from.  Not feeling up to making a monogram?  Make a card with your favorite Serendipity sentiment.   I'm so lucky that my first and last initial are the same.  It makes it really easy to create a symmetrical design.
I love this floral frame stamp and really enjoyed coloring it with Copic markers.  I love all the colors I was able to incorporate into the design. 
We're trying something new at Serendipity - a 50% off "stamp of the month".  This time it's the Jar Label.   And... another special 50% Off select Wood Mounted stamps - you can see them here.

Need a little inspiration?  It's only a click away!  See what the design team made for this one!

 Have a great day!  I hope it's a beautiful Spring day wherever you are!
