November SOTM Blog Hop


Welcome to the November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring November's Stamp of the Month, Capture the Date, a set of 72 stamps.  If you have came here from Beth's Blog, you are on the right path.  The blog hop is a great big circle, you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find a complete list of participating consultants here.


 Close to My Heart is having an awesome promotion with the November Stamp of the Month.  Place a qualifying order to purchase the Stamp of the Month for only $5, and you can chose another stamp set of your choice for 50% off! Your half off stamp set is your choice from any of the current A,B,C,D,E or M stamp sets! If you have been waiting to try the alphabet stamp sets, now is the perfect time to add one to your collection! The promotion is valid from November 1, 2012 (9:00AM MST) through November 30, 2012 (11:59PM MST).

 I incorporated November 22 from the Capture the Date stamp set to make one layer of my background paper.  I used the Thanksgiving stamp from the So Grateful set for my additional layer.  I fussy cut my pumpkin and layered onto my Perfect Fit Frame, which was cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge.  I folded down the top edge of my burlap strip to give my card a cleaner finish.  My card is based on the sketch challenge this week at The Paper Players-



I added an additional layer of pattern paper from the Florentine Paper pack to finish out the inside of my card.  The colors are perfect for Fall.
