I spy with my
little crazy big google eye....a turkey! I know you are here for the Just Us Girls challenge #7 and are probably wondering what this crazy turkey is doing here? LOL!
Dry embossing is the game this week, with a bonus challenge of having your project involve being thankful. Enter, the family turkey aka the Kindergarten project for the whole family to get in on.
Let's talk challenge here. My favorite method of dry embossing is the cuttlebug envelope embossers. They give such a wonderful impression. Here I cut my background circle of red cs and then ran it through my sizzix using the damask folder. Easy and beautiful. I used the turkey from Cathe Holden again and then stamped my sentiment bending it to right the circle since it's and acrylic stamp. Some pinking sheers and ribbon do the trick after that and I mounted the whole thing on top of some fabric piecing.
Here's the turkey we made...we all contributed supplies, ideas, and glue (lots) and had lots of laughs together...which is what, I am sure, the project is most about....thankful for family time and our many blessings.
So how about some eye candy from the rest of the JUGs girls?
Be sure and drop by their blogs for more embossing fun. You are gonna love what they've come up with.
A wee bit o blog candy business...remember the felt snowflake ribbon from last week? Well here's our winner:
Lucky number 11, the fabulous Kelley Eubanks is my winner! Kelley, please send me your snail mail address at paperdaydream at aol dot com and I'll send some felt on it's way. Knowing Kelley, she will make it look smashing on a signature Kelley card!
Thanks so much for dropping by today. I'm off to celebrate my 34th with family time and Italian food! My favorite! :)
