Thanksgiving Dinner

I know it has been a while since I posted, but hopefully this will be the last time I am saying that! As much as I love blogging, sometimes it is so hard to get to!
So anyways! On to blogging! I do realize it is the first day of December, and although I had a goal to get ALL of my thanksgiving/fall stuff out to you by just didn't happen:)
We had Thanksgiving dinner at out house this year. Here are some pictures of the table and settings. I know I know you can see my washer and dryer! Due to the amount of guest I had to set up shop in the garage. It is pretty much converted into a room, so it wasn't so bad:)
For the table settings, I "gilded" pears with Wilton gold shimmer~so you could still eat them. Added a die cut wood leaf a bit of sponging and shimmer to it, and tied it on with linen thread. It was great having everyone over. I love entertaining.

Happy Turkey Day!!!!

So this Thanksgiving is at our house...and you are probably wondering why I am posting and not running around like a chicken or should I say Turkey with her head cut off. I have been out of the blogging world for almost three weeks, due to surgery and then playing catch up on life. So I figured I could at least say Happy Thanksgiving! Plus I will have 20 people at my house in a few hours and I am totally calm!
So on to stamping! Here are the invites I came up with for my dinner. And here is the turkey up close. This is not my original idea, I saw it here at Lynn Pratt's blog.
hanks for stopping by and great Thanksgiving!

Cards from Parks and Rec

So here are the cards that I came up with for parks and Rec this time around. They had requested a Birthday and Anniversary, and I figure a Thanksgiving wouldn't hurt! I really like the simplicity of this card. All the stamped images are garden green, I just stamped off to create the different tones in the leaves and words.
Here is the birthday card. This is the on a pedestal set. It is a great set with almost any color combo.
And this set is retired, I just don't have the heart to get rid of it! I just love it!

October 3-D Stamp Club project

I had fun making this months 3-D project. I didn't think this picture showed it great so that's why the one below is at a little different angle. The leaves are "crunched" then spritzed with gold shimmer and I used sticky strip to adhere it to the glass. Added a little twine and a grateful tag. Perfect as a hostess gift with a little candle inside.

Club Hostess Gifts

So for each of my club members, each time around I make them a "hostess" gift. I used to make it each month for each hostess. Well due to lack of time in my life :0 they weren't always "equal" in thought or effort. So I decided I was going to do them all at the same time. That way everyone got one at the same time with the same effort. Here is what I came up with this time around! The are organizers of a sort. Made from the play date file folders. Above is a picture of three of them...sorry it isn't the greatest picture. I sort of forgot to take one and had to ask a few of the club members to barrow it for a minute.
Here is Sandy's up close. I put there initial in the center of the flower with just perfect alphabet.

And here is the inside. A small notebook, two pockets, post-its and a small envelope. The ribbon that ties it shut also is used to hold the pencil or pen in the center.

October Stamp Club project

We had a great club meeting last month! Here is the card and scrapbook page we made. I used the set with gratitude. At first I struggled with making this medallion stand out the way I wanted it to. But a little ink, versa mark, embossing powder then sponging over and there you go! I really fell in love with the other stamps in this set the more I used it. I am sure you will see it again as Thanksgiving approaches!
