Zombies & November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop


We had such a good time doing the zombie thing last night I just had to post a photo of my little family in character. We went to two Halloween parties and also walked around the local grocery store just for fun.

I'll have more Halloween photos to share in a few days, but business comes first because it's a new month. November already! And that means a new stamp of the month. And the Blog Hop, of course! November's stamp is called "A Little Thanks" and it's filled with many quotes and phrases and words of gratitude. I know I will be getting a lot of use out of this one. See the image of all the elements of this set in the righthand column of my blog.

And, of course, what better time to qualify for a FREE stamp of the month than November because it's also time for "A Little More Thanks" with Close To My Heart's November campaign. All YOU have to do is qualify for this stamp of the month for FREE (with your purchase of at least $100 before shipping and tax) and you'll also get to select any A through D sized stamp set for absolutely FREE! Check out my website for details.

Now on to the Blog Hop. If you're already hopping, you've come from Georgia's blog. Did you scroll through her blog a bit? She has some really cute things there.

Now check out what I've created below, then be sure to keep on hopping. You'll see a link at the bottom of my photos on where to go to next. Have fun!



I am still in love with CTMH's Veranda paper pack and will surely miss it when it's gone for good. It's so feminine and romantic. With the help of some dies and border punches, plus a little Prisma Glitter, this card will be a perfect Thank You for one of my coffee buddies.




My all-time favorite card template in CTMH's Wishes card confidence program book is "Fancy File" on page 81. It's so simple, yet so impressive no matter what papers or stamps you use. I just love it! I added a sparkle gem, some Buttercup ribbon, and Cocoa ink to pull this card together.




Finally, I needed some really quick Thank You notes for the four fabulous consultants that ordered kits from me last week, so I dug into my stash of extra make-n-take cards, and whipped these babies up. The paper is from good old "Good Times" from last year. (I miss that one too). 

Now, keep on getting inspired and continue on the hop. Let's go check out Katy's blog to see what clever creations she's come up with. I love her ideas!
