Thanksgiving Place Cards

Happy Halloween!!!!

It's time for another 3-D challenge over at Cardz TV.

The challenge theme is "All in Our Places..."
(Create place cards for your Thanksgiving Table.)  

In our home, Thanksgiving is a laid back kind of day.  We stay home, not typically visiting family or vice versa.  After all it's a day off for Mom too, right??  :-)

Our tradition begins with watching the Macy's Day Parade, while the turkey is in the oven.   And our breakfast is homemade cinnamon rolls, milk, juice, & coffee (of course).  

We don't have a formal Thanksgiving dinner either...mostly because our dining table is now my craft table.  ;-)  And the youngest of our adopted children does not sit well at the table.  So my place cards are not assigned to anyone, but left blank.  After we eat, I thought my 8 year old daughter could use them for her tea parties and what not.  

I used my Silhouette Cameo and Jamie's cut file  to create these adorable place cards.  
I used a Peachy Keen Stamps face stamp for the eye/eyebrows, instead of the ones included in the cut file. 

The banners were hand cut, inked with frayed burlap distress ink, and stamped with a greeting from the "Thankful for You" CardZTV stamp set.
