Name the Pumpkin
Every year for Thanksgiving dinner we usually have about 20 to 25 family members and friends over. Alot of cooking and dirty dishes for sure! However, this year it appears that we may not have that many (whew!). Even though we won't have that many guests this year I still like to make everything look festive. These will be a couple of the place cards I'll use this year - very informal affair. Last year I made some with a turkey on them - these are not quite as creative but think they'll do the trick. (If you want to see the ones I did last year, check it out HERE)
I used the Big Pumpkin image from Hero arts and the nestie scallop die and colored them with Prismapencils. I made a little "backing" on them so they'd stand up and then attached some hay.
You may want to zoom in on these - I was having a hard time getting a good picture since we had about a 30 mph wind and I was taking them outside! I'm really thinking maybe I could benefit from an Ott light!!! Maybe I'll have to throw a couple of hints around for Christmas!!! So, what's your opinion........is an Ott light worth it?
This is for the Creative Inspirations Paint challenge.
