I was just playing around with my stamps (I should have been cleaning) and I decided to make this little napkin holder. I always go to my sister's house for Thanksgiving and since I'm a pathetic cook I try to contribute something of the non-food variety. This just might be the thing! Thanksgiving at my sister's house usually involves about 20-25 people so this will be quick and easy.
I just stamped "thanks" and the pinecones on a Mango Tinplate notecard, oval punched it, edged it with Pumpkin Spice Versamagic (my fave!) and colored the pinecones with markers.
The ribbon (to tie around a napkin) is woven through two holes in the bark scallop oval. I then just used Pop Dots to adhere the stamped oval. So easy!
The stamps, paper and ribbon are all by A Muse Artstamps.

I was inspired by Novell's adoreable Elzybells card using the mouse stamp. On the full image he's looking at his reflection on a Christmas bauble. Here I masked that portion of the stamp and also added some branches from the same image. Last I inked one "bauble" from the bauble line stamp and hung it from another branch. I loved the way Novell used circle punches to look like an ornament so I used the same idea here.
I've been inspired by all the designers and instructors on the A Muse and Elzybells teams. Their creativity is incredible! Check out the blogs I read. I've added a bunch!

I wish I could be at Angela's, but I'll be traveling to York, PA for the Heirloom Convention. I'll be at the A Muse Artstamps booth and we'll have MITI's! Woohoo! Please make sure to stop by if you plan to attend. I'll only be there Saturday, but I know Cindy would love to see you if your plans are for Sunday. If you have ever called A Muse in Seattle chances are you spoke to Cindy. She's the best!

Did you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month? We all know someone (maybe yourself?) who has fought or is fighting breast cancer. It effects everyone. If you haven't had a mammogram-make an appointment now! It's fast and it's easy.
