Here is this months EXCLUSIVE stamp set, that you can get for ONLY $5 with your $50 CTMH purchase in NOVEMBER 2018. 

I LOVE that we have an EXCLUSIVE stamp set available at a DISCOUNT each & every month!!

What a FUN set, and I can't wait to see what my CTMH sisters create with this stamp set! :) I'm sure you saw some beautiful work already in this hop. :)    

Today, I chose to create a card with this stamp set.   

I didn't have a lot of time to "play" I created the first thing that came to mind, and it's quite simple.  I look forward to playing some more with this stamp set VERY soon! :)  

Because I was short on time....I picked up my Make It From Your Heart vol 4 AND my NEW "Love of Color" color combo book. I am SO THANKFUL for these books, and how time saving they are!! 

Can you guess what paper pack I used for this card???

It's the paper collection with the BRIGHTEST colors in our Idea Book this time. We call it "Oh What Fun".  I love the tones in this paper pack...isn't this collection beautiful?!?!!

I'm not sure how well the photo captures this...but let's give it a try.  A SIMPLE way to add some dots to any background....our Shimmer Brushes! 
  OH the possibilities!

I wanted a "sparkly" snow background, and I took the shimmer brush....tapped it on my finger above my paper & ta-da...I made shimmer flecks of snow! 

I also ADORE the NEW Silver Thread....and twirled a bit around my finger & used a glue dot to hold it in place! ;)  The perfect sparkle & shine!
