Confession about my Thanksgiving Place Card!

Fall Masterboard Projects
Actually Made in August!

Hello sweet friends...

After getting your sweet comments about how I was able to make such a cute little place card, and be so organized, and on top of the Thanksgiving decor and holidays... I must confess.

I started my Thanksgiving and Fall crafts over the summer! If you clicked on yesterday's photo, you would see the green grass in the background...and the August date! I'm sharing all of them above...


Yep. As part of the Cornish Heritage Farms 'Stamping Star' challenges...and in particular, the Masterboard Challenge (create your own background and use on multiple projects) I started my fall goodies!

So, you see? I'm 'really' organized. Or even ready. Or on top of it. And, I still have three more place cards to go! But, at least the template is done...

BTW: Most of my motivation is driven by adrenaline and challenges! Thank goodness, or I would not get anything done!

Speaking of Adrenaline:
The drive yesterday was just fine! No worries! More about my interview(s) later...

i am *literally* laughing out loud that you think having made these IN AUGUST... in a way which let them *multi-task* for a fabulous challenge... makes you somehow LESS ORGANIZED than if you'd whipped them up now. :)

(duuuuuuuuuuuude! you are *SO* kickin' martha's butt!!!!!! both in preparedness AND awesome design!!!!!!!!) ♥♥♥

Well, Andi, I don't care when you made them....you rock! And I agree with Elise (that gal cracks me up...in person and in print!!)......but, I hear you! I've pulled something up for myself and then look at where its photographed and think that those two things don't match. But, good and fun crafti-happenings are always great, whenever they are created!!! Happy Thanksgiving....yikes......I just realized we're under the one week deadline!!!

Who knows where to download XRumer 5.0 Palladium?
Help, please. All recommend this program to effectively advertise on the Internet, this is the best program!

It seems like that is the only way I get some things done lately is to start them 6 mo. early. Way to go!

The placecards are adorable and I so love your masterboard projects. I did something like that one time and I know it is a fun challenge.
