It's Turkey Time!

Well almost anyway.  I've purchased my turkey and am looking forward to sharing it with family on Thursday.  This turkey, however, will be shared with all you followers and fellow bloggers.

I already made a card using the turkey on Simply Charmed and didn't want to repeat that so decided on this cut from A Child's Year.  It's just a silhouette but I like that he looks more like a real turkey.  I have four challenges to enter this in and I had to follow different guidelines for each. 

1. Harvest Blessing - use red, orange and brown at Fantabulous Cricut
2. Easel card at My Craft Spot
3. Thanksgiving - must use punch at Celebrate the Occasion
4. Let's Talk Turkey - use a turkey at Cooking With Cricut

The background paper is from Amber Autumn by DCWV and has the red and orange in it.  To make the turkey fit right, I ran my easel landscape fashion using brown paper.  I punched a little border piece out of an orange print and used the same paper for the sentiments.  I inked the turkey and wasn't too sure if I liked it but it does make the little cuts show up better.  He and the easel sentiment, of course,  are popped up with dimensionals.  It's not often I link four challenges with the same card but since I was gone earlier in the week, this made it easier to enter them all.  I've always envied those who could make a card fit multiple challenges and now I've done it.  Yay!

  2. Yes, he does look more like a real turkey and the inking adds just enough texture. Thanks for joining us for Challenge me Monday at FCCB. - Melanie
