Today's the last day of the Fall Tutorial Event. I want to thank each and every one of you that has left comments on my blog posts. I truly appreciate you all!
It seems that here in America, that oftentimes Thanksgiving gets glossed over by Christmas. I am as guilty of that as anyone. However, I think it's super important to remember our blessings and to celebrate them no matter the season or occasion.
I created some quick and easy Place Cards for my mom (she is hosting Thanksgiving at her home this year) and a Thanksgiving card that I can use as a "thank you" for having dinner at her house.
Then I used an old frame I had on hand, some Papertrey Ink Felt and stamps and such to make a little home decor item for our home. :)
Happy Thanksgiving Card
I love this Harvest Season Stamp Set from Lawn Fawn. It perfectly exemplifies the Thanksgiving Holiday to me. Beautiful leaves, a cornucopia and lovely sentiments. Perfection!
Don't forget to make the inside of the card beautiful as well...

Places, Please Thanksgiving Place Cards
I can see using these not only for holiday dinners and functions but using the die and label stamp on cards, as gift tags, etc. I adore this set! I made these place cards for my sweet mama who is hosting Thanksgiving this year.

Give Thanks Home Decor Frame
At first I wasn't sure I would want the Gobble, Gobble Stamp Set from Papertrey Ink. I was wrong. I adore the cute little turkey! He comes with coordinating dies and you can either stamp him or cut him from felt or mix and match like I did here. I also used Quickutz Nesting Leaves with the Papertrey Felt to coordinate with the turkey.
