I noticed today that the coneflowers in front of my porch are just blooming. It reminded me that folks who don’t live as close to the prairie may not be familiar with the lowly Coneflower (also known as Echinacea). It’s a “native prairie” flower and they can put up with any heat or drought. The center is very hard a bristly, a “cone”, and as the flower matures the petals droop down more and more. Click the photo to see the Serendipity Stamps version of the Coneflower!
Sue was out of town earlier this week and so just got her Garden Challenge card to me. What I love about her card is that she took absolutely one of the UGLIEST stamps in the Serendipity catalog and made a adorable card with it! You’re the bomb Sue! (do they still say that?).
Here’s the stamp – 758E Daisy.
Our incredible team of designers just posted their projects for the Serendipity Stamps Garden Challenge. Just take a look at these green thumbs!

Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps Gallery! I’m Mary Lee, Serendipity Stamps’ owner. For years I’ve had a small team of great designers – Holly, Sue, and Carolyn. You’ve seen hundreds of their projects on www.serendipitystamps.com over the years. Now we’ve added seven more to the group! Each member of the Serendipity Stamps Design Team has her own page, where you’ll see a gallery of her projects.
I started Serendipity in 2000. I can’t believe it’s been almost 10 years! Back then my daughters were 4 and 6 years old – now they are 14 and 16 and we’ve added a third one to the bunch- she’s 13! My husband of 19 years has to put up with all these extremely hormonal women — he spends a lot of time out in the barn puttering around…And then I have Opal – she keeps me sane. When all the other girls in the house are complaining that there’s nothing to eat, that I make them do too many chores, that it’s too hot, too cold, that I’m too strict, that we need faster internet and more TV channels, Opal just smiles and wags her tail, and I’m able to shrug my shoulders and say “Opal seems content, I think we’re good.” So here’s to all the Opals out there in the world, reminding us that smiling and wagging our tails is the best way to get through any day!
