ANOTHER 3-D item??? What is going on here???

(Be sure to click on this picture to see the detail)


Well, here is another 3-D creation from me for a Challenge. Darn these challenges...they are just so...so... CHALLENGING! This one was from Mothers and Daughters Creations and the challenge was to make a Thanksgiving table decor. UGHHH!!! What to do... what to do???

I did not want to do the usual so I had to cook this one for a while and come up with an idea that would be unusual... like me! So I made table name place cards... with a twist! I included 2 pieces of paper and a tiny pencil for the guest to write down 2 things they are thankful for and to
put them in the Happy Thanksgiving box before the meal begins. Then, during dessert, I thought it would be a great time for Daddy to read them and we can reflect on our Blessings!I really LOVE this idea (if I do say so myself, right)and I know it will be a wonderful way to thank our Heavenly Father for all of our blessings... seen and unseen. I hope you will try this idea and add a little bit of gratitude to your meal as well!
