Welcome November!

If you've been following my blog then you know I've been working my way though this set of large oval month stamps from Serendipity.   Each stamp features little images perfectly suited to each month.  November is another beauty featuring wheat and a cornucopia filled with the bounty of the harvest.
I am in a purple mood lately - maybe it is withdrawl from Halloween - maybe it was the purple of the grapes on the stamp??  It's beyond my control -  I usually go with the flow and let things come together naturally.  I softened this one up with rounded edges and the scalloped border across the bottom.   These stamps are really beautiful for decorating not only calendar and scrapbook pages.  What a great way to just celebrate the month and the changing of the seasons?   The die cut behind the oval is from the Spellbinders Damask Accents set - I cut it twice and put one on either side of the fussy cut oval month image.
 
This one was lots of fun to make.  Once I've made it through all 12 months I will offer the cards as blog candy.  I hope you are enjoying them as much as I am!
