Thankful for You!

So y'all know that I love to make a turkey card each year, you can see the previous cards HERE and HERE.  This year I thought the Four Feathers bundle would be a fun way to update my turkey, of course I had to add gold to really add some shine.

The owl builder punch makes a great turkey body just by snipping the ears off, the heart that is included in that punch makes a great waddle.  I used gold foil paper for added shine.  This is my second try making a turkey using the four feathers bundle, I will share my first try at the end of the post.


This Thankful for You stamp was included in the October My Paper Pumpkin kit, it was just what my card needed.  Have you tried the new venetian crochet trim?  It is soft and delicate and so very pretty. A Gold button and bakers twine ties all of the gold together.


It was quite fun trying to come up with a new way to make a different turkey, Tate loves it and proclaimed it "cute".


Here is my first turkey that I made, I loved the embossed gold, but it turned out bigger than I anticipated and was too much for the card.  I was going for a more elegant looking turkey, and I think this one works that way.  I will have to incorporate into a banner or table decoration.

So grab your Four Feathers stamp set and matching Feathers framelits dies and create something different than what you might suspect.



We have been keeping busy as usual!  Mackie's high school sailing is in full swing with a regatta a few weeks ago at the Coast Guard Acadamy.  Tate decided on Batman for Halloween, he so loves to trick or treat!

I am always Thankful for You, my loyal blog readers, I truly appreicate you.  Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!

Sandie, I love your Turkey cards! I am pretty certain you were the first to inspire me to do turkeys on a Thanksgiving menu several years ago. This year's bird has very elegant feathers and bling!! Love it!
