Dance....Serendipity February 1st Blog Hop

Hello,

Welcome to the first Serendipity Stamps February Blog Hop of the month. February...already!!!

Once again, the design team will be showing you some fabulous products and offering you a chance to win some goodies from Serendipity Stamps. All you need to do is hop along and leave comments, which puts you in running for a $20 gift certificate.  Here's the hop list....

Carol Mayne - you are here

Today, I'm sharing two cards that herald the start of several sets - requested by my sister-in-law - for my niece's ballet teachers.  How fortunate, isn't it, that Serendipity Stamps had exactly what I was seeking in the oh-so-lovely  Ballet Cling Set, that comprises a ballerina, ballet slippers and a fabulous sentiment.  I think these images are lovely as is...so I left them *as is*. My CAS-loving heart is swooning...Gotta love it when gorgeous stamps do ALL the work! *grin*



The sentiment "Dance is the hidden language of the soul", is lovely and powerful. I have several other designs in mind for these images; hopefully, Ms. T's teachers will be pleased when they receive their gift card ensembles once dance wraps up the season...

Please head over to Serendipity Stamps Blog for more hop details. Oh yes, and there are awesome deals to be found!  The Fun Heart Cling Set, for example, is this month's 50% off stamp...I think they need to come live in my collection! 



Next on the hop list: wonderfully talented Karen Amidon.

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #166~Music to my Ears (ballet/dance implies music...that's my connection. Hope that's okay and if not, totally understand...)

Thank you for spending time with me today; your visit brings me joy!

Those ballet teachers are going to love these, and wonder how someone could personalize cards so beautifully! I know little Miss T. is going love them, too! When our Jessica was little, she wanted to be a "bannereela." The family still refers to ballerinas that way, lol! Sweet, my friend. Bev

That looks like a silhouette of my granddaughter, Carol. After seeing the shoes I remembered I have that stamp in rubber that I won a long time ago.

Karen Kleinert said...

Reminds me of when I used to dance. You do not hear much of little girls doing ballet anymore. But then it did not help that I had a boy. I would have loved to take a little girl to lessons and reminisce of putting on those ballet shoes and wearing a tutu.

Sarah Ashley Posch said...

I agree; I like that ballerina silhouette. It's perfect just like that.

Michele K. Henderson said...
