Spoon & Fork Included

Hi ya friends,
I'm afraid the flu bug bit me & I've been under the weather & under the covers :( but thankfully I did have a chance to make a few cards before I went down. Today's card uses a couple of things I picked up from Heartfelt Creations. It is the invitation I created for those who are attending Thanksgiving at my house this year.
Here it is:
 I only made 2 Hee! Hee! This year, the family is headed up north for Thanksgiving. My oldest son has basketball tournaments so I'm staying behind with him. So our only invitees are my brother & grammy :)

 Here's a peek from the side:
Those are appetizer spoons & forks I found a while back at Ralphs (in the aisle where they have plastic ware & plates) & I thought they were so cute!!! I bought them cuz I figured I'd use them for something crafty & it turns out, my hoarding paid off. They're miniature, silver plastic ware- perfect for my card, don't ya think?  I used the Open Falling Leaves stamp set (embossed in gold) along with the coordinating dies. The doily is PTI, the pattern papers are MME Lost & Found Sunshine, and glammed it up with my Viva Pen in gold.

Here's a peek of the innies too:
Thanksgiving = Good eats 'round these parts. Yummy! Can't wait!
