Helmar Blog Post & Some Thanksgiving Decor'

Happy Tuesday all! I hope you are having a grand week so far! I spent the whole day yesterday cleaning my house, doing laundry, and decorating my home for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. I have a doctors appointment this morning that I am very anxious about, but I wanted to take a moment to hop on and blog. I have a new post going up on the Helmar blog today. If you would like to see that and check out how I made the card below, go HERE. For my project, I used the following Helmar Adhesives:
3. Helmar Zap Dots (both square and round in black/white)
 Here is the card I made for my blog post. It is a 6x6 square card. For the card I used:
1. Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee
2. Punch: Martha Stewart, EK Success
3. Pearls: Queen & Co.
4. Glitter: PK Glitz
5. Laminator: Purple Cows
6. Butterfly Mask: Tattered Angels
7. Butterfly Embellishment: source unknown
8. Die Cut Machine: Cricut
9. Die Cut Software: Cricut Gypsy
10. Die Cut Cartridge: Mini Monograms
 For more info on the glittery background, view the Helmar blog post that I linked up above. This was super easy to do and fun!
 You know me, I have to include lots of yummy dimension...
 Inside of card:
 Now, it's not much, but I wanted to share my Thanksgiving decor'. As always, I had to decorate my table. Yall know I love dishes! If you don't, I am a dish fanatic, as is my Mom and SIL. I own about 17 sets of dishes and change out my table almost every month. This month I have some fall/leaf looking dishes. I wish I had some turkey dishes...maybe one day! :)
 Individual place setting.
These are not fancy schmancy expensive dishes either. I purchased these at Wal Mart a few years ago. The gold chargers are from Hobby Lobby.
 I have a little table in my dining room too that I always try to decorate. I added the 'Give Thanks' frame that I shared with yall a few weeks ago to this table.
So it's not much, but there is my attempt at bringing the Thanksgiving cheer into my home. I want to get some nice potpourii to make it even better. I see another visit to the Christmas Tree Shoppe...tee hee!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy your day! Happy Scrappin'!
Pin It!
