Gobble Till You Wobble!!!

Happy Hump Day all! 
It's all downhill from here! Yay!!!

It's time for our Inspirational Challenge over at 
Here's your Inspiration!

You can take from the picture what you like & use it as your inspiration 
to create a product for a Dude!
Here's my card!


I took the turkey, the shape of the turkey's tail feathers, 
some of the colours & the lady!
The image I have used is Fanny Thanks by Marloony for Dude Time Doodles!
She's a real doll & has cooked up a treat for her man!
At least I think she's going to share it! lol!!!

As we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in UK I opted to make  a 
Christmas card!
Turkey is generally the order of the day for Christmas dinner!
I made an easel card as I haven't made one for ages & was 
having major withdrawl symptoms!
The base was cut using a Grand Nestabillities  Label die.
I then inked the edges using a cats's eye inkpad!
I added mats of red foil paper & green Christmas tree DP.
Not sure where the DP is from it's been in my stash for a while!


I paper pieced Fanny & finished colouring with Promarkers!
I then cut her out with a nestie & matted & layered with 
textured red foil paper, then white card which 
was also edged with an inkpad!
Not sure if you can make out the sentiment?


Here it is a bit closer, it says
"Condiments Of The Seasoning!"
The only embellishments I added are some die cut snowflakes which 
I layered with foam tape!
I do hope you can come & play along in the Challenge!
