Due – July 16th, 2011
Requirements – Send a Christmas card (or other project), made using stamps that are NOT traditionally Christmas or winter stamps. That means no snowmen, no Baby Jesus, no Christmas trees etc.   But it has to be obvious that it’s a Christmas or “Winter Holiday” card – don’t be sending me any red and green birthday cards…The primary stamp used on the project must be a Serendipity Stamps image.
Prize – A brand new set of 45 Bruynzeel Aquarelle Pencils (watercolor pencils) – a value of $50!

Check out the card below which was  submitted by Karen McAlpine.   She used Strawberry Hearts, 1083D to create her card.  Check out Karen’s blog for details and lots of other create ideas!  And congrats to Karen for the upcoming publication of her card (made with a Serendipity Stamp) in the Sept. 2011 issue of Scrap and Stamp Arts!
