November Stamp of the Month - Seasonal Trees

Thanks for stopping by

                                  November Stamp of the Month

Welcome!  A blog hop is just one big loop of fun and creative ideas. Glad you could join us today.  If you are coming from Krista's blog you're on the right path. If you are starting here, just look for the link to Joyce's blog at the end of my post.  Each blog you visit will feature a link to continue following the hop.   If you get disconnected somewhere along the way, you can find a complete list of blog hop participants here.

This month's stamp set is Seasonal Trees It features 22 stamps great for creating unique trees. It's available only through the month of November.  After seeing all the great ideas in this blog hop, you're going to want to add this to your stamp collection.   You can purchase this set for $18.95, or get it for only $5 with a qualifying order of $50 (US) through your Close To My Heart consultant or find it here .

I have some winter themed cards for you today.  I used texture paste along with this stamp set to create these cards.   I have a special fondness for cardinals on winter cards, so I used a red marker to form a peak on the top of the bird's head to make it look like a cardinal.
