Share the Magic Blog Hop....

Not only can I not believe that it's already OCTOBER, but I really can't believe that I'm already using my Christmas stamps. 

This month's blog hop is using October's SOTM, Share the Magic and it's full of Christmas icons including Santa, Rudolph, Frosty and some other few tidbits shown below:

This month we have LOTS of Consultants participating which means you'll be seeing LOTS of great artwork using this one stamp set!  If you've come from Cindy's Blog, you're on the right track!  If you get lost, you can always come back here and try to pick it up or go to Helen's Blog and see a complete list!

For my card this month, I chose to do a 5" x 7" using Mistletoe Paper and some Cocoa Brads.

-----------------------------
Closeup of the brads - I also stamped the little star-looking stamp and stuck the Cocoa brad through...when I saw Angela's creation for the Thriller Blog Hop, it just stuck in my head and I'm sure this is where the idea for all these brads and distressing came from.
 ---------------------
Here's a closeup of Santa's suit...I used Liquid Applique, let it dry completely and then heated with the Craft Heater...this method keeps the LA from bubbling up too much and gives it a little smoother look.  I also used the Licorice Opaques for his belt buckle...
 -----------------------------
and...the inside of the card
