Gobble Gobble!!

The holidays are closing in really quick and I haven't even started thinking about what we'll do!!! Thanksgiving will be spent with some new friends here in Albuquerque as both Rob and my family will not be able to come out and we won't be able to go home. I am getting excited though!!

This week at The Cuttlebug Spot we are celebrating Thanksgiving by including those adorable little turkeys on our projects - plus we will be off next week for the holiday! This week I am happy to report my card was finished and ready to go in plenty of time - I'm still feeling horrible about missing out last week. My cute little turkey is boycotting Thanksgiving by wanting us to eat anything (preferably one of those cute little piggies by the looks of his sign) but him!!! I found this the perfect opportunity to use my googlie eyes again - we all know how much I adore putting googlie eyes on everything I can!!! I used the Diamond Plate (one of my favs I do believe) and Argyle plate to emboss the designer papers behind the little guy and my DP's are from the DCWV Indian Summer Fallstack that I got on clearance at Jo's for $3!!!! I love a great bargain! I also used the sketch over at The Pixie Cottage this week as inspiration and kept it really simple - you gotta check out the prize this week, so totally adorable!!! I hope you like my little guy as much as I do!

That is all for today (actually Sunday when I'm scheduling this....LOL) as I have school work to get done and I must clean up my disaster area from the last couple weeks of non-stop holiday crafting!!

Thanks for stoppin' by and happy scrappin'!!!

What an absolutely fantastic card - I love the eyes you have given him lol!!



Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
