CardzTV Stamps Challenge: "All in Our Places"

Hello my crafty friends!  It's time for another challenge with my awesome design team friends at CardzTV!  This week the challenge is all about being in our places!  So this week the challenge is to create Thanksgiving place cards!  When this challenge was first introduced I had NO clue what I was going to create but in the shower I came up with these cuties!!!  I love how they turned out and they worked out great as I have a whole bunch more to make-- that's what happens when you come from a large family!  Hope you enjoy these place cards and don't forget to link up with us over at CardzTV!!

The stamps are all from CardzTV Stamps: I used "Going In Circles" for the sentiment and the awesome part is I used "Ticket Talk 2" for the large monogram letters!!!

Time for a little apple cider!

Hello friends!  I hope this post finds you well.  I must admit I needed to step away from the Halloween decorations and cuts and create this little cutie for you today!  If you know me then you know I am in love with my Keurig!  It's a life changing appliance if you ask me!  And of course I found thee perfect sentiment to use on my tag from my friend Barb at Bug Bites 411 she's crazy talented and this sentiment is from her stamp set Autumn Splendor--if you don't have it in your collection I'd highly recommend it!!!
