Gobble, Gobble....

Whew...the craft fair is behind us. Thank goodness! What a bummer of a day we had! In all of the years I've gone to this fair, I've never seen foot traffic so incredibly non-existent. No one was selling much of anything. It was a 9-3 function, and we thought the clock would NEVER get to 3:00. We actually packed up at about 2:15 and called it quits. Anyway, hopefully, I can get back to a regular routine now!



The challenge at Stamptacular Sunday, is called "Turkey Time". We are to create a card or project for Thanksgiving time that includes a turkey! Having a turkey is not mandated, but a person gets credit for TWO entries if they include a turkey! It's hard to turn down a two-fer with one card, so here is what I came up with!



Since I still had some basic supplies from my masking workshop on Tuesday, I just used what I already had cut out. I found these great Inkadinkado stamps on my rack, and decided to ink them up with Chestnut Roan Chalk Ink. I added a few brads, a handful of pop-dots, and a ribbon from Hobby Lobby, and voila - a "Turkety Time" card!




Okay, off I go to other places early this a.m.! Have a very safe and blessed Sunday, and I hope that you all find a bit of stamping time today!

If you haven't yet signed up for blog candy, do so here!!! Drawing will be held November 20th!

Patti, what a great turkey day card; that ribbon sets it off! It's just the card that doesn't need a bunch of "stuff" --every pun intended...poor turkey...love the card. Sorry the craft fair didn't go well - I've had those days when I was doing the fair circuit. Maybe the next one will make up for it.

What a great card - i wouldn't have thought to do with with "the bird" but it turned out super. I see a trend here with us - revitalizing masking - easy peasy.
