Turkey In The Hay


This is my second post of the day.........my {Pin}spirational post is directly below.

The theme of our challenge at Shopping Our Stash is Thanksgiving OR a Thank You card!  Be sure and check out the blog for all the rules and inspiration from the Design Team.  AND, use up some of that stash!



This is Turkey in the Hay (not Straw)!  The hay came from a field close to our house and I thought he'd look pretty cute on his bed of hay.  Thanksgiving is right around the corner and what better time to say Happy Thanksgiving than with this cute turkey image from Karen's Doodles!  I colored him with Copics, cut it out, then popped him up a bit.  The paper. image, and sentiment are all from my stash! Did a little zig zag stitching and it's ready to be mailed.

I'll enter this in the challenges at Stampin For the Weekend (All Stitched Up), QKR Stampede (Hey Turkey, Strut Your Stuff), and Broken Box Stock (Thanksgiving).

This will be my last post for the Shopping Our Stash Design Team.  I've decided to step down and try to focus on some different things in the upcoming year.  I'll miss all the wonderful ladies on the team but y'all know I'll never be far away.  Thanks so much for everything!

Thanks for stopping by................

Wow Lynn... I love this card! The hay is pretty clever if you ask me and then I like the papers and that fabulous way you coloured the turk. That plain paper is the perfect back drop for this.. it really shows it off.

Your 'found hay' was inspired. This little turkey has attitude, and I sure hope he survives the holiday too. Your stitching is the perfect touch on this card, and your papers were so pretty with your coloring. Great job on the copics! Thanks for sharing
