A Bit Of A Turkey!

Good Morning all!
It's the last Wednesday of the month & that means it's time for the 
New Release Blog Hop at Dude Time Doodles!
The Dudettes & Dude, have all had fun creating with the new kids on the block!
If you're on the right track, you should have landed here from the awesome & very talented
NanaConnie if not,don't worry, the hop as ever is a circle hop so you can
 hop in & out whereveryou choose!
 If you get a bit lost just head back to Dude Time Doodles for
the blog hop order list!

Now, here's my little creation!
It's a Thanksgiving gift bag!

This is Fanny Thanks & she's here to make sure that your 
Thanksgiving is everything you want it to be!

Now Poor Old Fanny has a bit of a windy reputation, hence the sentiment!
Here's hoping all goes well for her!
Incidentally as it's still Ocotober &
Breast Cancer Awareness Month,
Fanny is dressed in her best pink dress!
I coloured Fanny with promarkers & matted onto some handmade paper.

I used a Papermania DP & did the same on a different colour paper.

I made a gift tag from a tag die & some of the papers.
I attached it using some bakers twine.
Added a few strategically placed buttons & hey presto!
At the moment the bag is filled with some bubble wrap but
I intend to pop something delicious in there real soon!
Not sure if you'll eat it or drink it but it sure won't be a turkey!!
Now it's time to hop on to the next Dudette, the wonderfully talented Ruth
Hope you have a fun time checking out all the new Dudesville residents!
I'm off to enter my bag in a few challenges

  5. Wonderful project, Dawn, and I love the sentiment! Too funny. I may have to CASE this on some good size bags for people to take home food on Thanksgiving. Wouldn't that make sharing out the leftovers even more fun? Have so loved working on this team with you, my friend. I'll be following your blog for inspiration. Hugs.

  6. This is a fabulous project Dawn!!!! I love it!!! Fanny sure does look grand in her new pink dress.
