My, How Time Flies!

Howdy Folks! I know it has been way too long since I have said hello. I kept meaning to poke in here but days turned into weeks and then it seemed too daunting to try and catch up with the projects sitting on my desk, waiting to be shown. But, here I am, with a new card to show you and my deepest apologies for flitting off without so much as a "be right back!"

Since the big Turkey Day is right around the corner, I decided to break my blogging silence with a cute little Thanksgiving card. I got the image from a relatively new shop called WhimsieDoodles. I know I saw it mentioned on a blog I was reading recently but I can't remember which one. What I do know for sure though is that they have adorable products. Their images are just too cute! I bought several which I will be showing you soon. Today's is called "Get Stuffed" and I bet you will love it as much as I do. Take a look...

Isn't he precious? I just love turkey images that have lots of cute feathers to color and he has 'em! I was very happy to see that the images I downloaded from them are very crisp and clear making them easy to work with and color. I printed this one on plain old Georgia Pacific white cardstock and he looks great when colored with my Copics. I used a few Zigs and Bics too but there was no bleeding.

My paper choices were a couple of "oldie but goodies" so I was happy to clear them out of my eternal stash. I kept my embellishments relatively simple because there was already a lot going on with all those colors. The inside of the card is blank for now but I think I will add a little decoration with my scraps and the cute little pie slice image that is included in the set of digi-images.

Well, I hope you like the card. I promise to do better and not stay MIA for so long. I have lots of holiday cards that I have been working on since we visited last so poke back again soon. Have a great weekend!

  2. What a darling turkey card Kyla! Welcome back! I was wondering what happened to you. Good to see you posting again. I totally understand how hard it is to get into a regular stamping routine once you've been away for a couple of weeks. Don't worry, we are all still out here keeping an eye out for you:))
