Thanksgiving Turkey

Happy Monday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Today was one of those days that started and is about to end with a blink of the eye. I went to the gym this morning for my session with my trainer. Then the rest of the day is a blur (lol!!)

I was working on my card for this weeks color challenge and it was one of those times when it took forever to complete it. I really liked how it turned out and now I have another Thanksgiving card for my stash. I send about 10-15 Thanksgiving cards so I need about 9 more.

Now onto the details for my Thanksgiving turkey. Nancy is our hostess this week over on Splitcoaststampers for CC444 and she gave us some great fall colors to work into a card.  She also wanted us to do some fussy cut or use a die cut. I did both on this card.

I made a thanksgiving card and my layout is the Viva la Verve Sept Week 1 sketch.
My turkey image is from the Verve set “bountiful blessings”. I paper pieced him and that’s where the fussy cutting came in.

 I paper pieced his feathers in cajun craze cardstock. The pumpkin body is paper pieced in tangerine tango cardstock. I popped up his head and the beak is paper pieced as well.

My crushed curry background designer paper is from Stampin-Up’s “razzleberry lemonade” collection. Used the Stampin-Up  “basket weave” embossing folder on my choc chip circle and the Cuttlebug embossing folder  “autumn type” on the Cajun craze panel.

I stamped my sentiment on a crushed curry panel in choc chip ink to complete my card. Well that's my card for this post and it's time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land ofr another day. So until next time.........God Bless.
