Close to My Heart November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop.  My blog is following Angel Sawyer's Blog.   We have 68 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in this month’s Stamp of the Month Blog Hop and I am so excited that you are visiting my blog.  If you like what you see, I would love it if you would hit the follow button on the right side of my blog!
The November Stamp of the Month is entitled Capture the Date (Set of 72). Here is a picture of this stamp set:

My wedding anniversary is on December 1st.  Sometimes I have a hard time making a masculine card, but I knew that this stamp set would make an awesome card for my dear hubby.

I used the Scholastic Paper Pack for my card.  Then I went to my go-to Cricut cartridge, the Cricut Artiste, to make the pinwheel medallion. I am loving our new Burlap Ribbon.  I took it and pleated it and then held the pleats together with pewter brads.  Then I topped the Burlap Ribbon off with a part of the zip strip.  My husband is a true romantic so I knew that he would just love the sentiment.
