November CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Hi everyone can you believe it is November already? Where has this year gone? Welcome to the November CTMH blog hop. If you came from Michelle's blog you are on the right track. Today I am sharing a two page layout using Capture the date November stamp of the month. This stamp set is so versatile, you could use it for layouts, cards, business ledgers just to name a few. I have chosen a School Days theme. I think this works so good to capture those pictures of school functions during the months of school.
You can purchase the stamp set for 17.95 or with 50.00 purchase you can get the set for 5.00
During the month of November we also have an additional special see information at the bottom of the post.

If you would like to purchase the two page layout kit for 12.50 plus 6.00 shipping you can click on the paypal button. If you would like to directions for the kit just purchase the stamp set or any paper pack and I will email you the directions. You can purchase this stamp set or any other items you may need by clicking on my website button in the upper right hand corner and joining the online gathering.

Trick or Treat I have something cute for you

Hey everyone, I took a little break from our Holiday Workshop to work on this fun little Halloween house, yard and trick or treater's.
I used a small chipboard house from Alpha Stamps, Graphic 45 Halloween paper and the new Tim Holtz Halloween strip die and a digi print from Alpha Stamps by Artfully Musing.

This was really fun. I used a piece of foam core for the ground and then added the little house and built it from there. Hope you enjoyed looking at it.

Keep those hands inky and will talk with you soon.

The little house sits flat, I have it raised on the coffin just for a better picture.
