Welcome to my blog and the November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. If you have come from Pam's blog, you are on the right track. If you get lost along the way, please check HERE for the complete list of hoppers.
This month's stamp set is called It's The Little Things (S1411)
My first two cards were made using the colors of the Pathfinder Paper Pack: Goldrush, Lagoon, Glacier, Autumn Terracotta, Olive and Chocolate. I have fallen in love with this set. Layering the flowers really makes them really pop. And did you notice the white on white card? The top piece is popped up a bit. The card on the right is a 3x3 card. Just a small little gift card.
These little cards are just 3x3s also. Quick and simple with three colors of ink to add dimension. We all need that fast little card to add to a gift or to slip onto someones desk or in a bag.
This is a set of 15 stamps I think you will really love. Ask me how you can get yours for just $5.
Now hop on over to Brenda's Blog to see what she has created. Enjoy the journey. I hope it inspires you to think about the "little things"

Usually, around the first week of October, I go to my mom's to attend the Breast Cancer Survivors Brunch with her. This year, we decided to have our own party at home, just the two of us.Pathfinding Paper Pack with these fall pictures. I love how I can cut out shapes and words with our Cricut Cartridges. I tied Baker's Twine on the branches and added Gold Sequins for a little shine.

I love the saying included in the stamp set Halloween Greetings (D1605) And the witch is a cutie too. This card was made with several new items. The new color Thistle is in the Scaredy Cat Paper Pack. You can get this color in ink or cardstock too. Halloween Greetings is new, a set of 10 stamps for those spookier stampers out there. The White Enamel Stars (z2010) come in a pack of 72 with two sizes in the pack.
The Glitter Paper (Z1992) in Purple and the Triangle Border Punch (Z1997) give the card a little glitz.
I just ran the piece of Thistle card stock through the punch and cut a strip of Glitter Paper to adhere to the back. Just an easy way to add something different. Here are just a few of the new items in the Annual Inspirations book. Have you tried out your new goodies yet?
