Fall Favor

Hi stampers!  Happy Tuesday....that means it's time for another challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  And sorry for being MIA this weekend but I was down at my mom's on my first weekend off in what seems like forever helping her celebrate her birthday!  We were able to spend a lot of quality time together and get some things for her new house although it seems like there never is enough time for everything!  I was excited to go down there since I thought the leaves would be really pretty about now.  Sadly, I was disappointed as they are really pretty here but not so much at her place.  Funny how 80 some miles can make such a difference!  I was hoping to see some pretty colors like in this week's inspiration photo:


Isn't that a pretty tablescape?  I sure do wish I had seen all those colors in the woods at the farm but I pretty much just saw brown.  Oh well, maybe next year.  So, my project for this week is a cute little favor I can use for Thanksgiving dinner.  Aside from cutting the leaves, it went together pretty fast.

 Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Gently falling, falling leaves
Paper:  crumb cake, very vanilla, soft suede
Ink:  more mustard, cajun craze, soft suede
Accessories:  Circle punches, linen thread, more mustard dotted scalloped ribbon

 I took my inspiration from the gold and rust tones in the picture.  I really loved them.  This favor came together quickly with the pillow box die and it fits three hershey miniatures perfectly....although no one will get the dark chocolate ones in their favor as they disappear in my office;-)  Now, click on over to HSS and see what the other DT members have to show you and play along!

Happy stamping!
