PPA Challenge #18 K.I.S.S


Wow Great Food, Great Company, Great Times!

What a beautiful Thanksgiving, it was cold outside and rainy but it was warm and toasty inside with the people I love.

Here is a picture of what I used for table settings today. Even the baby had his own, although he can't eat half of what was in the bag. These were simple and quick to make, we had dinner at 1:00 and I made these about 10:00 a.m.. I only had to make 7 so it took no time at all. I ran the Stampin' Up! Fancy Favor die through the Big Shot using the Autumn Meadows Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Mini. I wrapped the 1 1/4" Chocolate Chip Striped Grosgrain Ribbon around the box and knotted it. The tag is from the Holiday Best stamp set which is a level 1 stamp set, I used my markers to stamp with and punched it out with the extra wide punch and attached this to the striped chocolate chip ribbon with a light brown 1/4" grosgrain ribbon. Then I filled the boxes with little treats for after dinner if anyone had room! Hope your Thanksgiving was "wonderful"!

Sunday Evening

I've been working on My Christmas Cards this weekend and only have 4 completed. I didn't think they would take that long as they didn't seem to be that difficult when I looked at them in the beginning. So I quit working on them and have been reading email and looking for a dining room table and chairs on line. Looked for one in the stores this weekend but I don't want a pub style table and chairs. I'm only 5' tall so those chairs are a little high for me. I found a few on line so now I'm feeling better about the whole table shopping deal. Leave it to me to sell my dining room set before I found a new one. Now with the Holidays coming I need somewhere for people to sit. :0) Oh well, I wanted to post a picture of Brady in his new car! Remember he is a year old now. He needs his own wheels! This little car is like a big slipper. He sits down in it and he doesn't go anywhere but it honks and sounds like a real engine from the steering wheel. It has a side mirror that he likes to chew on and a key that fits in the ignition. We had so much fun with him when he was here this last time and he's such a little ham. He can be crying one minute and you bring the camera out and he's all smiles. Have a good week, I have to finish my Christmas Cards and get ready for my Christmas Card classes.
Happy Stamping!
