This year, on Christmas morning, my parents and grandmother (we call her Nani) will be coming over for breakfast and to watch Meredith open her presents for Santa. As she is only 18 months old, and is starting to understand Santa (in that she knows he brings presents), this is going to be a fun Christmas for all of us.
I whipped these up as table place cards, although, being there are only 6 of us for breakfast, my Dad will probably say that we all know where to sit already (but you understand...don't ya??? I just want to STAMP something!!!).
I used the Believe set from Papertrey Ink and my fabu new Liquid Applique! I love this stuff...how did I ever live without it!!! I added some Dazzling Diamonds to it...so it has a pretty sparkle IRL.
Thanks so much for looking (and reading...sorry, I am rambling tonight!!)

So cute! I totally understand. We have a running joke around here about plate chargers. The first year sis and I used them, we had to explain what chargers were to my dh and her dh. Every year they play dumb again when they see them. I just wonder when they're taking their Smothers Brothers routine on the road.

I totally understand the need for place names even when there's a small group!! It just makes the table festive!! This is adorable - love the diamonds on santa's fur - what fun with an 18 month old on Christmas!

I completely understand!! I make my husband a beautiful card each year for his birthday and anniversary and christmas, and I dont even think he looks at them!! He's just not that guy, but I still stamp one every year, cause it makes me happy!! You are so blessed to have such a beautiful daughter, she is at a fun age!! Wish I had two or three just like her!! TFS
