Glazed Turkey

I know it is July but you really do need to be thinking ahead to Christmas! The Card Patterns sketch challenge just screamed Christmas and turkey to me when I saw it! Dude Time Doodles are sponsoring this week's challenge and I've used the Turkey Lurkey image, coloured with Promarkers.

For the winner of a challenge, a $10 gift certificate will be awarded from Dude Time Doodles - so you have to enter!

I've used one of my Nesties as a template to draw around as I wanted the image more oblong than square.

The brads are from my stash and the snowflake embellishment was a lot plainer before I got my glitter glue out - its from a set of parcel stickers from Marks and Spencers (makes a change from the Poundshop!) and I've had them a few years - bought in the January sales of course!

The papers are all from a wonderful download from Alison Sloan called Sweet Cookie Christmas and I've created pleats with the papers to give it a tablecloth kinda feel!

I'd like to enter the following challenges with my card:

Cardmadfairy's Digi Day's Challenge: Digi and an animal (well, it used to be!)
Crafty Catz: Vintage
The Poodles Parlour: Birds Eye View (a turkey is a bird!)
Craft Us Crazy: Christmas in July and Vintage
My Time To Craft Challenge: A La Carte (food)

  • Image: Turkey Lurkey from Dude Time Doodles, coloured with Promarkers
  • Papers: Sweet Cookie Christmas from Alison Sloan
  • Everything else: My stash
