Gobble Gobble

Happy Thanksgiiving to our Canadian friends! 

I just returned from my trip to the Wisconsin Dells area.  Leaves are turning and it was beautiful!  I’m sure next week will be peak leaf colors up there because every day we were there they got prettier and prettier!  We went on the Upper Dells Boat Tour…a little cool, but we picked a sunny afternoon, so it wasn’t too bad.  Also visited the House on the Rock…a wonderful museum FULL of rare and unusual collections!  HUGE…it took 3 hours to walk thru the entire thing and we were tired!  Definitely worth a visit when you are in that area.

Here is my card for the LateNight Stampers Challenge #41, a sketch challenge.  I wanted to commemorate the Thanksgiving holiday today in Canada.  Maybe you didn’t know that it is earlier due to the harvest season being earlier in that area.  Stampin’ Up!’s single stamps are SO much fun.  This one is called, Gobble Gobble, and is a perfect turkey to color with Stampin’ Write Markers.

I started with a base of Kraft cardstock and layered on a piece of Autumn Meadows Designer paper.  I wrapped the 1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon around to the back to secure.  I added two Chocolate Chip Corduroy Buttons to the front and tied each of them with Linen Thread.  The Gobble Gobble turkey was colored with Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Really Rust, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie and Creamy Caramel Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock.  I layered it on Chocolate Chip and then Really Rust cardstocks.  Finally, I stamped Happy Thoughts of You from Grateful Greetings on the Taken with Teal pattern in Autumn Meadows Designer Paper with Chocolate Chip Classic Ink and punched it with the Modern Label Punch.

I have a TON of stuff to work on this week, including prepping for a class tomorrow night!  Hope you have a productive week, too!
