October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

It's time to blog hop! If you've just arrived here from Wanda's blog, you are on the right path.

Wow, this year is 75% over! We're getting SO close to Christmas. What a perfect time for the October Stamp of the Month, Holiday Warmth. That is the stamp set that over 60 Close To My Heart consultants will be featuring in our October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. This month we've shaken things up a bit and broken the hop down into three mini-hops. There will be a link to each of the other groups at the end of my post. This month's SOTM is a set of 11 stamps, and is perfect for your Christmas card making.

For these cards, I used one of the workshops in Wishes by Jeanette Lynton. I went for a rustic look with these cards, using Desert Sand cardstock for the base, along with Cranberry, Bamboo and Ponderosa Pine.
