A Couple of Turkeys

Yesterday you'll remember seeing a "couple of bucks".....today you get a couple of turkeys!  It's time for another challenge from Digi Haven and our sponsor is Floppy Latte - who provided the sentiments for my cards today.  The theme this go round is Fall.  Be sure and check out Digi Haven and play along for a chance to win a wonderful prize package from Floppy Latte.

Both of my cards are exactly the same - except for one little difference................



Yep, the second one isn't just some ordinary turkey - he's turkey in the straw!!!  The turkey image is from Bugaboo (colored in Copics) and like I said, the sentiment is from Floppy Latte.  Super clean and simple cards that will get mailed the week before Thanksgiving.

A little story about the straw!  I think I've used small pieces of hay on my Thanksgiving or Fall cards for several years - mainly because a guy used to store his bales of hay out here and I'd just go grab a handful.  This year he didn't store it here so I had no hay and was pretty sad about the whole thing.......however,  the grocery store provided!!  They have very small bales of hay for the pumpkins and that type of things to sit on.  You guessed it.....several little sprigs just ended up in my purse somehow -  they were actually on the floor in front of the bales and I just figured it was my duty to help keep the store litter free!!

I'll enter this in the challenge at DRS Designs (who's a turkey).

Thanks for stopping by.......and be sure and enter the Digi Haven Fall Challenge this week.

You're so thoughtful to keep the local store floor clean! LOL Those little bits of straw are the perfect touch to the 2nd card, even though the one without straw is every bit as cute! I cannot believe it's almost Thanksgiving and Christmas is right around the corner, when we just said good-bye to summer! Time flies! Have a great weekend!

Hi Lynn, what a CUTE turkey that is and coloured in so well. I LOVE the straw, it gives such a natural look to the card. Your story about picking up the straw made me smile.
Love,

Oh my goodness, Lynn, this is just the cutest TURKEY card and that added hay is so fun.
You know, I have some hay/straw that looks like that and I bought it in a little bundle to use at Christmas around the manger scene. But, I suppose your store will always have some all over the floor...just for your convenience. LOL You're too funny.

Donna Hanley said...

I can always count on a chuckle from you-thank you for that. These two cards are very nice however I'd have to pick the one with the hay as my favorite because of how hard you had to work to keep that store floor clean to get it. LOL I hope that store paid you well for all your "work". I love the way you backed your sentiment pieces- nice, different idea. Enjoy your weekend and don't work too hard.

You're too funny Lynn! How kind of you to help with the clean up!! Both cards are terrific but turkey in the straw gave me a louder laugh!

Anne Temple said...

You're too funny! Both of these are so darn cute, but your story with the turkey in the straw made me laugh. Great design too.

Shirley said...

NanaConnie said...

Too funny, Lynn! Love the turkey in the straw card and your story about keeping the store litter free is priceless. I'm going to be laughing over that one for days.

Ellen said...

Darlene said...

Well, thank goodness Lynn is keeping her local market's floor clean for the other shoppers! Hehehehe
You rock the CAS style, and this turkey is colored so smartly. I love the spunky feel to these cards!

so cute! love the turkeys!

MaryH said...

Oh Ho, I did like your cleanup the litter story! What a great recycle effort & I hope you will post this to Pixie's Snippets! Very unusual snippet I say. These are both so doggone cute, and loved the digi sentiment (along with your copic coloring too, BTW). Turkey in the Straw always makes my feet dance. TFS & Hugs.

Bonnie said...

I'm so glad you did your part to remove the litter from in front of that bale of hay! Very civic minded I think! Love both cards! That's a really cute turkey!

Jessi Fogan said...

I was already laughing at the 'somehow ended up in my purse' and then I saw Bonnie's comment about civic minded....lost it. I probably peed a little ;)
Jeez these are fun :) And turkey in the straw? Just slaying me. Love it!

Shelia said...

These are so cute and I really like the way you used hay! Glad you found some at your grocery store!! Thanks for playing along with us at DRS Designs!

Karen said...

Lynn what can I say but..."Too Cute and Clever" Love it!

Darnell J Knauss said...

You are a riot, Lynn, and so are these great cards!! I can just see the guys in the surveillance booth: "Oh, geez, Lloyd, would you look at that one! She is literally picking up those scattered bits of hay one by one and putting them in her purse!! Har! Har! Ya think she might be making straw soup?!" It's very thoughtful that you gave them some amusement in their boring jobs!! Hugs, Darnell

Nancy in Iowa said...

GENIUS!!! The straw is perfect! Never would have thought to do that...but certainly will now! I actually read the 'sentiment' in progressively louder increments! Just like the real deal out my work window and backyard at home.

Joan Ervin said...

Super cute designs, Lynn...I sooo love how you created the sentiments and I think you should get an award for keeping the store clean...community service at it's finest !!!!

Davi said...

The turkey is so cute and love you you did the sentiments, very clever! Fun card made me smile ;)

Marilyn said...

Margaret said...
