Rake and Leaves...Serendipity Stamps September Blog Hop

Hello!

Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps September Blog Hop (#1), where my incredible DT and I are sharing a whole bunch of Serendipity Stamps sensations.  Want to add a few of these fabulous products to your collection?  Two simple steps: hopping along the DT blogs (you should have come from incredibly talented, sweet 
Patti Kehl's blog) and leaving a comment puts you in the running for a $20 gift certificate.  Here's the list.


The warm (and later this week HOT) temperatures of Summer continue to linger, but Fall is starting to make 'sneak' appearances in the cool air that descends overnight and the changing colour of the leaves.  As much as I don't want Summer to end, I do love Autumn's palette, which influenced my cards today....



My next two cards use the same image; one for those who might not want to colour and one for those who do.  This fabulous Rake image - which is 50% off this month! - is lovely either way. No sentiment, which 'leaves' them open for any occasion...




Please head over to Serendipity Stamps Blog for more how-to-win details as well as for some scoops on sales. 

The 50% off Stamp of the Month: 
Rake


Next on the list is wonderfully talented Miriam Napier. Enjoy!

Thank you for dropping in today; your visit brings me joy!

  1. Lovely colors. Like you, I'm sad to see summer heading out, but I guess the compensation for that are the colorful leaves and the crispness in the air. Makes one start to long for a cozy afghan and a sip of something warm. That's what your cards evoke, Carol! That bit of longing. Thank you so much for sharing. Have a wonderful day! Hugs!

  2. Sometimes a black and white image works better than other times but I have to say this Rake looks good either way!

  7. Fantastic fall cards, I love leaves, kind of like butterflies, one can never have too many! I guess because Fall is my favorite season, watching the colors change! I love your first card!

  8. Well if I wasn't stomping about in my fall boots and sweaters happily already, these cards would definitely inspire me to bust them out. They both epitomize the spirit of fall. I especially love the contrast between those vibrant fall colors and that stark black. So lovely!

  19. Although I love Fall and it's wonderful color I only want to see it on your card, Carol. Summer went by much to quickly for me. But with Fall comes raking and your rake stamp, colored or not, makes a wonderful card that you can 'leave' the sentiment off. ;)
