Holiday Magic - CTMH October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to my Heart October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. This month features a fantastic Christmas set with so many possibilities.

 If you've come here from Dawn's Blog, then you're on the right path. If you just happened upon my blog then you can continue the hop from here. When you get back to my blog again, you know you've seen them all.

I have two cards to share with you today. The first card was made with the sleigh. The packages were made using the tops of the stockings. The packages and the ovals were all cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge.


This second card was made at a play date with my convention roomies, Joyce and Debbie.  We all put our heads together and came up with this card. The stocking was first cut with the New Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge exclusively through Closed to my Heart. If you want to know more about this amazing cricut cartridge with 700 images on it, Contact me here for more information.


Now, hop on over to Wanda's Blog to see what fabulous artwork she has to share with you.

I'd like to submit the Stocking Card into these challenges:
Crafty Creations - Clean & Simple
Stampin Royalty - K.I.S.S.
Truly Scrumptious - Clean & Simple
Less is more - Color of your eyes

This is charming stocking card Nancy.
Thanks so much for joining us this time.
We do ask our participants to remove Word Verification from their blogs as we usually have about 200 submissions each week and that takes a lot of time to comment upon. Word Verification makes that process even longer for us... thanks
We hope to see you next time.
