CTMH October SOTM Blog Hop

Hi!  Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  This month we are featuring the October SOTM which is called "Share the Magic:"  It is a set of 12 stamps.  If you have come here from Wendy's blog, you are on the right path.  Just follow along, and I'll have a link at the bottom of my post to connect you to the next blog.  So here's the Christmas card that I made using this stamp set:

I used the Mistletoe Paper Packet, New England Ivy and Colonial White cardstock, New England Ivy and Black ink, CTMH markers in Cranberry, New England Ivy, and Chocolate, and Cranberry velvet ribbon.  The snowman's eyes and buttons are made with our new Opaques.  They are self-adhesive and come in 3 colors and 4 sizes each.  I used the black ones from the Licorice pack.  We also have Mocha Opaques which have shades of brown and Pearl Opaques.  The sentiment and flourish at the bottom are from one of our A-size stamp sets "A Timber."  These versatile sets are only $7.95!  The snowflakes were made with a Martha Stewart punch and the scalloped circle is a Marvy punch.  Here's a close-up of the snowman:
