November Stamp Of The Month

Here is a sneak peak of the Nov. SOTM-A snow man with all sorts of different scarves and super cute!

more CTMH peaks.......

Another card using images from the Sept. SOTM and I also added an image from the Oct SOTM. The Oct SOTM is a lot of fun to play with. It's great for placing journaling in or just cute saying or phrases. The paper I used for this card is from the Perfect Day paper pack. Everything is CTMH including the little corner frame embellies. They are so super cute and fun to play with . TFL. I'm going to post a couple more things later this afternoon, including a card using the Nov SOTM-a snowman......and I plan to post a smaple of all the paper packs featured in the new Fall Winter Idea book. :O)
