Christmas Cutlery

Happy Thursday everyone.  It's my day to share a project over at Craftin Desert Divas.  I have a super cute decor item to share with you today.  Of course, I used one of Tara's amazing stamp sets to create my project!  Here it is:

Every year during advent, we do an activity every day to celebrate the season.  We do a couple of theme meals - like eat a "Red, White and Green" meal or "Breakfast for Dinner".  I decided that these little cutlery holders would be the perfect addition to our table on one of those nights.

As soon as I saw the "Noel" sentiment on the Simply Christmas set, I knew I had to use it for something, and this was the perfect stamp for this project!  I needed a small sentiment, because I didn't have much space, and my kids are in French Immersion, so having the sentiment in french was just an added bonus.  And did you notice how GORGEOUS the font is???  Below is a close up of the sentiment, so you can see how beautiful the script is.

I used the Simply Christmas stamp set to create this project.  You can buy your own in the Craftin Desert Divas Shop HERE.

Be sure to stop by Craftin Desert Divas everyday.  There is always something going on, from Linky Parties to Blog Hops, from Stamp Releases to Daily Inspiration!  See you there :)

A challenge or two for my project:
4 Crafty Chicks - anything goes
Fab n Funky - Christmas
Party Time Tuesday - anything goes
Christmas Card Challenges - anything goes
Stamps + Fun = Creativity - no cards allowed
Allsorts - christmas
Sweet Stampin - anything but a card
Completely Christmas - anything goes with a sentiment
Christmas Stampin - photo inspiration
