Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Wow!!!  Can you believe it, next Thursday is Thanksgiving Day?  Where has the time gone?  Well, since I'm going to be busy spending my day with family and friends.  I thought I would share some turkey with you all now.  So enjoy!!!!

I started with my base card (cream) 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  I cut a dark brown mat at 4" x 5 1/4".  The orange mat was cut at 3 3/4" x 5".  The patterned paper is from DCWV "Everyday" stack and was cut at 3 1/2" x 4 3/4".  Everything was adhered to the cream base card with my ATG.

For the oblong shape, I used George and Basic Shapes Cricut cartridge/  The dark brown was cut at 4 1/4" x 3".  The orange poke a dots paper was cut at 4" x 2 3/4".  Again, I used my ATG to adhere everything to the base card.  Now for the turkey, I used my Simply Charmed Cricut cartridge.  You will find the turkey on page 61 of the manual.  Everything was cut at 2".  I inked the turkey, grass, and blue plate.  Then I foam taped this image onto the base card.

For the sign image.  I manually made everything around the stamped image.  I used Hero Arts Poly Clear stamp and stamped "Happy Thanksgiving" with Dew Drop Brilliance "Coffee Bean" ink.  Threaded think blue ribbon through my orange button and glue dotted it onto the sign.
