Thanksgiving Place Cards

Today's creation is 16 place cards for our nephew's Thanksgiving dinner. We were invited, but had to decline. I volunteered to make the place cards for their table.
Our theme for Pattie's Creations Challenge #57 is 'Harvest Time or Thanksgiving Holiday' and runs until Thursday December 6th. We have a sponsor, Dude Time Doodles, who is offering a $10 voucher to their store to the random winner. The image I used is called 'Bountiful Blessings' from their store.
Below is a larger view of the image digitally colored by me.

Pattie's Birthday

Today is my sister Pattie's Birthday! I decided to go with a sentiment as my image for her card. I created the plaid paper in Corel. The sentiment is from Doodle Pantry. I used alphabet beads to spell her name, along with some silver beads, and strung them on a thin gauge wire. I made some Curly Q ends on the beads, and then placed them on a royal blue ribbon. To finish the card I added some hot fix gems from Pizzazzaplenty on the top corners.

Hi There!

I love 'Phoebe the Pig Fairy' image from Pattie's Creations!
It's time for another challenge (#56) at Pattie's Creations Challenge Blog. Our theme is easy, 'Birthdays'. My sister Pattie sent a link for a tutorial on how to create Plaids, to use as a designer paper or a background as a fill, in Photoshop. Since I work mostly with Corel, I figured it out using the tute as a guideline. The image was digitally colored by me quite some time ago, but I don't remember ever using it. Using birthday balloons text, I filled the balloons with a white background and layered it on the plaid paper. A few pearl embellies and a ribbon complete my card.
