Simply Crafts November Challenge

This is my submission for my good friend, Pam's, and her good friend, Glora's, new challenge blog, SIMPLY CRAFTS CHALLENGE. Please come play along. This is FUN!

The challenge asks us to make any project using the turkey cut from the Create A Critter Cricut cartridge or, if you do not have a Cricut, or this cartridge you can use a similar cut from another cut.  Although I cut this turkey at 3 3/4 inches...forgot about how TALL his hat would make him!  Whew!  I think he turned out pretty cute!
  • Create A Critter for Turkey cut @ 3 3/4"
  • A2 size card
  • Card base is Recollections Kraft Card Stock
  • All background papers from Recollections pack
  • Cream Background mat cut @ 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"
  • Rust colored background cut @ 4" x 5 1/4"
  • Green colored background cut @ 3 3/4" x 5"
  • Rocky border on bottom hand cut @ 1" x 4" and embossed with Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles folder.
  • Critter's hat embossed with Diamond Plate Cuttlebug folder.
  • Wings embossed with Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug folder.
  • Orange feathers embossed with Victoria Cuttlebug folder and edges rolled up with fingers.
  • Sentiment "Let's Talk Turkey" from Mary's CardzTV Stamps "Thankful for You" stamp set (shown below)

For some reason (unknown to me), I have not used the Create A Critter cartridge more than 5 times since I have owned it. Thank you, PAM, for using this cut for the challenge! I now realize why this cartridge is so popular.

Have an awesome day! Lynn

    I'm bad to not browse the blogs often enough (usually don't have time but I'm out of school today) and rather generally keep up with most by email subscriptions on my phone! So I hadn't seen your creations recently...(wish you had an email subscription!:p) Anyway, hope you liked your card I sent you as well. :) Getting ready to post it on my blog! :)
