My project info:
A quick little set of thank you notes, perfect for the host and hostess of your next yummy Thanksgiving dinner!  Bundle up the notes & envelopes, tie them together with pretty plaid ribbon, and add a bottle of nice red wine - the perfect gift!

The thank-you sentiment can easily be swapped for a name, turning these little cuties into place setting cards for your next turkey dinner.

Card details:
- Pumpkins and border - Silhouette.
- Give Thanks sentiment - T.A.W.S. Give Thanks
- Custom size envelopes - Envelope Punch Board (We R Memory Keepers)
- Envelope inside flap - Reflections (Paper Smooches).
- Envelope seal - Acorn -  Silhouette (I love adding seals to the envelope adds a nice little bit of something to an otherwise boring backside)


  1. I absolutely adore how versatile this is, Geri! What a wonderful idea to make a set of sweet cards and matching envies to give with a bottle of wine!! Especially when they are as pretty as these, sealed with an acorn kiss! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Perfect in every way, Geri! From the beautiful stamping on the envelope flap (that grabbed my attention right way - LOVE!), to the pretty pumpkins accented by the delicate swirl, to the sweet little acorn sealing the envelope with love. Such a lovely set - anyone would be thankful to receive these, especially from someone as thoughtful as you!

  3. Beautiful card set! I love that acorn on the envy flap, too.

  4. So, not only the most delicious card set and complementary envelopes, Geri, and those adorable acorn seals to dress up the back of the enelope ... but also a yummy taste of red wine too ... what a wonderful gift idea, my friend, so beautifully presented! Awesome! Anita :)

  5. wow wee these are amazing.. totally love those pumpkins.. so so cute..

  6. Shannon and Darnell said it all: these are FABULOUS! Love the envelope flap, the swirled pumpkins (oh, I can picture swirled trees/ornaments/stars for Christmas, hearts for Valentines, eggs for Easter...) and the sealed with a kiss acorn (you're right:boring backside need some 'plumping up' - and you've done it!). Darling, clever, perfect gifts!!! Hugs,

  7. Your note cards are so pretty - love the colors.
