Willow with Turkey



I finally have a new card to show y'all. I finished my design work last night. Thank you for being patient with me while I worked on it. It was fun reading your comments on who you thought I was designing for. BTW, Tammi was the only person to contact me with the correct answer. She knows me so well :) Are you still curious? I have been busy working on designs for the new Whipper Snapper release which is right around the corner!!!!! Wait until you see the uber cute images that are about to come out. I had a blast playing with them. I mailed in 26 cards yesterday and I hope to work on more in the coming weeks because there are many more images that I still want to use. So, I will have plenty to share with you once they are released.

Are y'all ready for Thanksgiving?? It's my favorite holiday. I love getting everyone together and cooking a big meal. We have family starting to arrive tomorrow so it will be great spending time with them. I need to make a massive list and get to the grocery store soon. Already got our turkeys though - .40 @ HEB with a $10 purchase - SCORE! We got 3 :) My guys wake up crazy early and smoke them outside. We always have plenty of extras, but I LOVE having leftover turkey stocked up in the freezer to use during the winter season. Ross even makes turkey jerky too. YUM!!! Sorry, I'm getting excited over the food - imagine that. There was a point to my whole turkey thought - this card! Tammi sent me this super cute Whiff of Joy image and it just doesn't get more perfect than that for Thanksgiving. Don't you just love Willow's whispy hair? My hair blows in the wind, but never looks that cute. I hope she protects that little baby turkey too. When I was little, I thought we got a pet turkey until Thanksgiving rolled around and I found out the wrong way when the guys strung it up and butchered it in the backyard. YES, simply terrifying and traumatic for a young girl!!!! Gosh, I'm chatty today. See, I missed y'all! Anyways .... I colored Willow with Copics. So lovin' those Autumn colors. I followed Mojo 113 for the layout and yes I will be saving it in my favorite sketch folder. Happy Thanksgiving and thank you so very much for visiting my blog and especially for leaving comments!!!! Have a wonderful weekend.
