Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?

Hello everyone!  I'm back for Day 2 as a Guest Designer and having oh so much fun!! So yesterday we started with a cute centerpiece for the Thanksgiving dinner table.  Today, I have some neat place cards for you and your guests.  


Whether you are having an elegant dinner or tons of silly fun, or if you are a family that has an "adult" table and a "kiddie" table - then these two ideas should be perfect.  Let's talk about the "adult" place cards first.


These gorgeous monograms are cut with the brand new Folk Art Festival ~ Cricut Cartridge.  And the beautiful fall leaves are cut with the Thanksgiving ~ Cricut Cartridge.  The cardstock for the place card base is from Recollections.  The pretty patterned papers are from the Simple Stories ~ Harvest Lane Collection.  And the brown cardstock for the shadow layer is from Bazzill.    




I used pop dots behind the monograms to add dimension.  To stamp the names, I used the alphabets stamps in the My Creative Time ~ Anyday BINGO & Crossword stamp set.  The ink is brown ~ Technique Tuesday Ink.  I didn't add any other embellishments because I thought these were simply beautiful just like this.

Now for the "kiddie" table:


Don't you just love these little cuties???   The scarecrows are cut from the Simply Scarecrow ~ Cricut Cartridge. The cardstock for their outfits are from the Simple Stories ~ Harvest Lane Collection and the Bo Bunny ~ Double Dots Collection.  And their cute little faces are from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ The Cornies Face Assortment.



I used a white ~ Sakura Gelly Roll Pen for their eyes and added a touch of chalk for their cheeks.  For some extra bling, I added a few gems from my stash and a flower to his hat above.  I used pop dots behind both scarecrows for more dimension.  The leaves were once again cut from the Thanksgiving ~ Cricut Cartridge.  I just snipped off a couple to have them separate rather than the whole bunch.  And the names were once again stamped with the My Creative Time ~ Anyday BINGO & Crossword stamp set.  


I hope you like them.  It's hard to pick a favorite, but I think I'm a little partial to the cutie patootie scarecrows!  :)

**********GIVEAWAY**********
Ok everyone, how about a giveaway?  Or how about two giveaways?!?   Since it's Thanksgiving next week, I have the Simply Scarecrow ~ Cricut Cartridge & the My Creative Time ~ Piles of Smiles stamp set to give away! Woot!  Woot!



All you have to do is leave a comment on this post.  And then hop on over to my blog and leave a comment on my Guest Designer post over there.  I will draw one winner from all the comments this week on this blog and one winner from all the comments on the Guest Designer posts this week on my blog.  SO...for more chances to win...make sure you leave a comment on each post for each day!  And don't forget to leave a way for me to contact you.  You will have until midnight MST on Sunday, November 18th to get your comments in.  I will use random.org to pick the winners.  And I will announce both winners on my blog on Tuesday, November 20th.  Good Luck!
****************************************

Well, that's it for Day 2.  How am I doing so far?  This is so much fun!  I can't wait to see you all again tomorrow.  Have a great day everyone!

~ Cassandra
