November Blog Hop - Happy Halloween!

It's not quite November yet, but it's time to start talking about Close To My Heart's Stamp of the Month and our November Constant Campaign. They go hand in hand this month, so be sure to read all about it below.

If you are already traveling through the Blog Hop, you came here from Erin Schulte's blog. If you get lost along the way or have issues, simply go HERE for a full list of the blog hop participants. With the storm damage up in the Northeast, there may be some power issues with certain blogs. We just ask that you be patient and find your way the best you can. Keep reading through my post to see where to hop to next.

November's stamp set is called "Capture the Date" and is sure to be one of those classic go-to's for calendars and scrapbook pages. (You can view all the images in this set in the right-hand column of my blog page.) I decided to make my husband a birthday card with it and - funny thing - I made it so long ago I forgot about it and gave him a different card I had in my stash. Doh!

So I guess I'll try to remember it next year and will just have to change the date. 

I think the new Dakota paper is a perfect fit for this stamp set for a manly card. I pulled the Happy Birthday image from one of the Cricut Artiste stamp set collections (Birthday). 

I am really loving these Sparkle Badge Buttons. They are slightly grey in color and they work well with everything. You can get them in the Haunted Assortment or you can get a 24 bulk pack (BULK273) directly from your CTMH consultant.

Are you digging those little mustaches as much as I am? Those are cut from the Cricut Artiste cartridge at 1/4 inches from black card stock. Hubby doesn't have a mustache. I just thought they were cute.

Now I'm giving away my husband's age. He's SO much older than me, don't worry.
(Good thing he doesn't read my blog)

November Constant Campaign
The November Constant Campaign ties in perfectly with the Stamp of the Month.
When you place an order of $50 or more in full retail products and purchase the November Stamp of the Month set for just $5, then you can receive a stamp set of your choice (Size A through E, or M) for 50% off! This is huge!! Now is the time to get that favorite stamp set you've been thinking about. Or to save a little on a nice holiday gift for someone special.

Onward through the Blog Hop! Go check out Georgia Hauglid's blog now and see what's she's come up with. I, for one, can't wait to get my big cup of Starbucks in the morning and go through the blog hop myself.

Now I leave you with a photo of my husband and I in our Halloween costumes. Those of you who are Big Bang Theory fans like us will figure out who I am. Paul didn't quite match up with any of the show's male characters, so we're saying he's my Space Center engineer "cousin." 

(Funny thing is, he really IS a space center engineer.)
