CARDS blog challenge & Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger - Thanksgiving place cards

ETA: I noticed my Thanksgiving place cards fit the Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab Blog too! :)
Hey everybody! Well, first of all, I just can't say how much it means to me that ya'll pray for needs in my life! Thank ya'll so much! I know it seems like I have been asking for prayer alot here lately, but prayer is SO important to me! So with that being said, the baby is doing pretty good, he is still in NICU, and I don't know how long he will be there. They are still running tests.

I did want to ask if you could please pray for my husband. He noticed a couple of days ago his vision seemed weird and then a little bit later he had a bad headache. Then the next day, it happened again, weird vision, then a headache. So I made him a eye appointment, because he was hit in the eye with a rock from the lawn mower when he was 10 and busted his retna, so we wanted to make sure, that wasn't it! He went today and everything was fine with his eyes. So the eye dr. suggested that he go to his regular dr., to get a MRI, because he thinks it is migraines. My husband was in a car wreck about 9 years ago and got whip-lash, and his back and neck have hurt ever since. He just told me about a month ago, that he wanted to go get a MRI, to see why his back hurt! So I guess he will find out both problems, and it could be possible that he is having migraines because of his back! So he goes to his regular dr. next week, so I will keep ya'll updated! I know that's alot of info, but I feel like I know ya'll and I wanted to give you the info to pray about, if you will! :) Thanks so much!

I also forgot about the PTI blog hop last month. I made some place cards for it, but the day passed by before I knew it, and it was to late to join! So when I saw the CARDS blog had a challenge to make Thanksgiving place cards, I had to use these. Ya'll know I love the PTI- Try Before You Buy Papers, so I printed off some First Fruits paper. I did a little stitching and added some PTI holiday mix- vintage buttons and stamped our names. I set the table up in a Thanksgiving decor and I was getting all excited about the Holiday's! :) We don't know our exact plans for Thanksgiving yet, so I guess I need to figure that out! :)

Supplies:

Cardstock- (Paper reflections) cream

Patterned paper- (PTI) Try before you buy papers

Stamp- (K&Company) Amy Butler alpha stamps, (PTI) polka dot basics II

Ink- (SU!) close to cocoa, (Martha Stewart) green

Buttons- (PTI) Holiday mix- vintage buttons

Other- twine-(WalMart), cream stitching from machine

Have a Blessed day!
