Happy Thanksgiving

Hi everyone in craft land. Hope everyone is OK on this windy rainy day. I just can't seem to get a decent photo anymore - sorry.
Well even though we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in England I do have some relatives in the USA - California - and this will be handed to my Aunty-in-law at the weekend hopefully. I won the Turkey image in a blog hop at Whimsie Doodles a couple of weeks ago - isn't he great. I really wanted to use him so as it is the right time of year here he is.
I have used the sketch at Create4Fun which is shown below.

The bakground paper with Autumn written all over it if from my Funky Seasons CD Rom from Funky Hand. The Orange paper is from my favourite set at Funky Fairys called Simply Brushed as is the brown piece the sentiment has been printed on.

I love that sentiment and so appropriate at this time of year. The image has been coloured using my watercolour crayons - dry!! I have then mounted him on brown glitter card with foam tabs.

I finished the card off with some beautiful Flora Doodles flowers I bought from Joanna Sheen. The ribbon under the sentiment is from Anita.

The other challenges I am entering are : -

One Stop Craft Challenge - Newspaper or text,

Saturday Spotlight - In so many words,

Get Funky - Autumn Woodland (plus Funky hand product),

The Pink Elephant - Use Brown, Yellow, Neutral plus a colour of your choice (Orange),

Kaboodle Doodles - Autumn,

Digital Tuesday - Flowers,

Simon Says Challenge - Thanks/Thanksgiving and

Funky Fairys Challenge - Fall plus a FF Paper.

As ever I look forward to reading what you think, thanks for taking the time to comment.
