Happy Thanksgiving - part two

We are off to Oshawa today to have Thanksgiving dinner with my family and to celebrate #1 phew's birthday. Before we go, wanted to show you some projects we made in the craft room yesterday.

Here are the Thanksgiving cards I made for family this year, Joel helped by punching and crinkling the leaves for me. Pretty easy cards to make, kraft cardstock base (Recollections), old olive (SU) layer, strip of DP (retired SU), coloured the sentiment (SU) with pumpkin pie and old olive markers (SU) on whisper white cardstock (SU). The leaves are early espresso, dusty durango (SU) and kraft (Recollections). The leaves were punched with a Martha Stewart punch, water spritzed and crinkled.


Joel wanted to make some more Thanksgiving gifts, this time for aunts and uncles. Here are the toilet paper roll turkeys we came up with. We covered the toilet paper roll in kraft cardstock (Recollections), made the beak from dusty durango (SU) and used the modern label punch (SU) to make feathers from cardstock scraps.


Gobble till ya wobble!!!

I'm entering my Thanksgiving card into the following challenges:
