CWC "Giving Thanks” BLOG HOP

Welcome to WorkinScrappinMomof4 and the “Giving Thanks” Blog Hop!  If you've come from visiting Jill at, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to hop along with us, you can go to and start at the beginning.

Today’s hop is all about Thanksgiving decorations – for your home and table.

For my project I decided to do some table decorations to go along with my centerpiece and my wreath I have made already :)  These little place setting/name cards can also "hold" something.  For now I filled one with a napkin and plastic silverware but will put a nice napkin and some "real" silverware in Thanksgiving morning for our breakfast (we are hosting breakfast at our house for my in-laws and eating out (Cracker Barrel-YUM) for dinner with my family.  Here they are:

I used Art Philosophy and Cricut CraftRoom to create my holder (welded some shapes together :).  I used it for the tag for the names also.  I used Create a Critter for my cute turkey.  I added a few gold details to him (features and stitching on his hat).  For the girls name cards I added some gems to the turkey feathers using my brand new iRock which I LOVE!

For this blog hop I will be giving away a $15 gift certificate to Pink by Design Stamps!  What is better than picking out your own prize, right!  To be eligible you need to leave a comment on this blog post by 11:59pm Monday, November 21st.  I will draw and post the winner Tuesday morning.  The winner will then have until Monday, November 28th to get in contact with me to claim their prize!  Good luck.
