Good morning! My girls get excited about decorating the Thanksgiving table every year. Most years we only have one table but we are having lots of guests this year so we decided to do a kids table. The girls both love Pinterest and have been finding lots of cute ideas. I am not linking to the pins but here is the list., Melissa Davies, Peurta Bella, Angie Juda, and Lisa Brown.
Mr. Turkey is made using the Gift Bow die from the Holiday Mini catalog. He is glued onto a little 4 oz. cup and holds candy corn.
This is Sadie's favorite part, making place cards. She also makes everybody sit in their assigned seat, no changing seats!
This is something we have done for several years now. Since we have a rule that nobody is allowed to pass through the kitchen and taste test, these snacks keep them from "starving".
We always list what we are thankful for and I save the lists and read some of the ones from recent years back as everyone is filling in the new ones. We get some really funny ones sometimes, a couple years ago someone listed gravy and Dalton listed Toy Story, Woody, and Buzz last year.
And last is the plasticware holder, yes I use plastic utensils for the kids but the adults get real ones. Thanks for stopping by!

Good morning! Today's card was requested by a customer. She wanted a birthday card to give to her niece whose birthday is on Halloween. She is also pregnant with twin girls so she wanted that incorporated into the card as well and she wanted a witch image on the card. She hasn't picked it up yet so I hope it works. Thanks for stopping by!

Good morning! Today I have another punch project. I will be sad when fall is over and I have to put Magnificent Maple away, it has seen some use this season. I made this for my oldest daughter, Heather, whose birthday is today! Happy 37th Heather! We are off to an early parade this morning, my Shelby is marching, sure hope the rain stops.
Here is the inside. Thanks for stopping by!

Good morning! Today I have a Christmas card to share using the Six Sided Sampler stamp set and punch. I had some 1/4 inch strips of Gold Foil sheets left from another project and couldn't bear to throw them away so I added them to this card. They really add a touch of elegance. I also used Metallic Gold ink for the sentiment. The medallion really challenged the ladies in my punch class but they have come to expect a good challenge every month. I have seen several cards(Stamping Up and non SU) using the punch this way, I am not sure who came up with the idea but I like it. Thanks for stopping by!

Good morning! I have a fun Halloween treat today made with MDS. I don't use MDS very often but a customer asked me to make 24 of these treats for her daycare kids so I thought this would be the quickest way. I used the ghost from Spooky Bingo Bits and enlarged it. In the photo the text looks smeared but it is actually the drop shadow behind it, it looks good IRL(was very hard to photograph). The test tubes are filled with mini marshmallows. Thanks for stopping by!

Good afternoon! Today i have a Christmas card made with the Warmth and Wonder hostess set. I pulled out a box of scraps and leftovers yesterday and was determined to use some of them up. The only thing that wasn't in the box was the deer image so this was a very quick and easy card to put together. Thanks for stopping by!

Good morning! Today I have another card using the Best of Autumn stamp set. The leaf image is embossed in gold and then sponged with Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, and Island Indigo ink. I love how the embossed wood grain Island Indigo turned out. Thanks for stopping by.

Good morning! Today I have an anniversary card made for a customer. I had actually forgottten that I had this stamp set, Memorable Moments, until I looked for something anniversary. I used Brushed Gold, Smoky slate, and Very Vanilla card stock and Encore Gold ink. Thanks for stopping by!

Good morning! Today I have more Perfect Blend goodies to share. Have I told you how much I like this stamp set?
I used a pretzel bag to hold a single serving of Starbucks coffee along with a couple coffee flavored candies.
I used the Card Base Pop and Cuts die and then folded it into a gift card holder.
I made a few of these for a customer and she picked them up yesterday and decided she wants a few more so I better get busy, thanks for stopping by!

Good morning! Today I have a Mini Muslin bag all decorated and ready to go on a Thanksgiving table. Every Thanksgiving we mix up a trail mix and put it in some cute little container and add it to the table decor. I think I will convince my girls to make this one this year(they are rather fond of making punch turkeys). I used the Chalk Talk Framelit die to cut the tag. The apple image and the sentiment are both from the Best of Autumn stamp set. Thanks for stopping by!

Good morning! Today's card was made with the Circle Thinlit Card die, these cards are so easy to make but so hard to photograph. They are much prettier IRL. I also used the Best of Autumn stamp set along with some retired DSP. The DSP for Fall/Halloween in this years catalog is more for Halloween whereas this one, Howlstooth and Scaringbone worked well for either. I added a punch pumpkin to the front.
On the inside...two more images from Best of Autumn and a sentiment die cut with the Expressions Thinlit die from the Holiday Mini catalog. Thanks for stopping by!
