FTTC137, WMS66 Holiday Ideas.....

Hello my everyone!

Hope you all had a chance to relax this weekend? As you know our weekend was busy :) !!! Sarah had a fabulous time at her first pageant and even though she did not win anything, it was definitely a wonderful experience for her and for me. This year they had the most contestance ever in Sarah's age group (16 girls)and of course it was tough to compete...nevertheless she had a blast! I didn't get a chance to edit my photos yet, but I hope by Thursday I'll have a chance to post them!

Today marks a new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC137. Tammy is our hostess this week and she is challenging us to create something for the holiday table! Anything goes... place cards, napkin rings, candles, table favors, decorations... let your creativity loose!

Here is my idea....






I went for the *Place Card*, *Table Favors* and a *Thank You* card. For my projects today I used two different Stamp Sets ~ Falling Leaves and A Season of Thanks. As you can tell, I've kept this design very simple....I wish I would have had time to set the table and place my ideas they way I had invisioned them, well hopefully next time :) !!! For my card I used the Spellbinder Beaded Circle Die and added another layer of a Circled Die, which I scored to follow the awesome WMS66 Sketch. I embellished my card with a cut out leaf, Silver Pearls and a Button.


Next, is my *Place Card*....I simple stamped the leave image and added the sentiment. My *Pillow Box* was created with the Sizzix Die. I stamped the smaller leave image all over and embellished the rest with a matching Satin Ribbon, Silver Pearls and the punched out sentiment.

Make sure to check out the rest of the team for their ideas ~ Cindy, MakiTammy and Beate. Don't forget to stop by our September Guest Designer Theresa Winslow.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by today....hope you have a chance to play along :) ?!?

Have a fabulous new week,

                                                              Hugs, ~Silke~
