Turkey Coma Wearing Off

Today I am VERY grateful for the invention of automatic dishwashers!  My hands had taken enough of a beating with the constant hand-washing while prepping the food.....I don't think they could have survived an hour in hot sudsy water!

This is the napkin ring I threw together at the last minute for our holiday table.  Stamped all over Shimmery White cardstock using the French Foliage set in autumn colors, then gold heat-embossed the maple leaf from Autumn Splendor on Cajun Craze and cut it out.  Ran a 2" strip of the stamped cardstock through the paper crimper, made a ring using Sticky Strip, stuck the embossed leaf on with a glue dot and tied some raffia around it.  Simple!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!


  1. Two prune-like thumbs up for this cute project!

  2. So pretty! Such a nice touch :)

  3. A 'I cut my finger on a knife while washing dishes on Thanksgiving' thumbs up on your great napkin 'ring'!

  4. I'm impressed that you made these last minute for your table! Very pretty :)
    PS: I had to hand wash dishes twice that day, at 2 different houses, neither of them mine...

  5. Very pretty. What a wonderful addition to any table.


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
