Feast Day

     I know by now you are all completely ready for Thanksgiving, right?  Pies baked, turkey bought and ready to thaw a day or two before, menu planned, good China and stemware washed and shiny, dust bunnies and cobwebs banished -- yeah, yeah, I know...  Well, this gobbler is ready and waiting!  He looks just like every man I've ever known, of whatever age, sitting at the table, waiting impatiently while the women are still slaving away in the kitchen.  :-D

     Friday means there's a new challenge at QKR Stampede and our theme this week is ""I'm Thankful for..."
My image is Digi 15904, "Thanksgiving Feast" and the sentiment is Digi 13815, "Happy Thanksgiving,"  both from QKR Stampede.  I'm thankful for family, food, and lots of other hands helping in the kitchen.

I based this design on the sketch at Sketchy Colors but reversed
so that the background is square and the image is round,
 and the sentiment piece is on the opposite side..

          The image is colored with ProMarkers and then die cut with a simple circle die from QuicKutz.   The doily is cut with a die from Cheery Lynn.  The rust CS behind the image and also framing the sentiment are salvaged scraps, as is the polka dot dp.  The ribbon and lace are from my stash, probably originally from a local scrap store.  The rose is from Recollections.

     Hey, folks, it's time for the weekend!  Get your crafting hats on and make something that pleases you.  Then go finish the pre-Thanksgiving chores which still need to be done.  Life's short -- eat dessert first!  :-D  NanaConnie

Ha.........feed him good, Connie. That is a really cute image and great card. I am always away for Thanksgiving so I am one of the helping hands in the kitchen. I know, though, the hostess has the hardest job of all.
Have a good weekend.

Such a cute little gobbler, Connie! and a delightful coloring scheme. The shading is great! I'm trying to learn how to use intense colors (like yours) and bleed them out, too. You've done a great job! Sweet card hugs, de

This is a brilliant image- love it! Your coloring is wonderful : ) The boys in my husbands family- they can eat and eat and eat- never gain a pound!!! I am just a helper- if any help is needed in the kitchen, and enjoy seeing the kids from year to year- seeing how much they grow and mature.
