Well I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving holiday. I don't know about you but I'm stuffed! We had a full turkey dinner with our friends Colleen and Diane on Wednesday night - a tradition we started back in the 90's since none of us had family in town. And then another full turkey dinner on Thursday with our neighbor family - a tradition we started after Stephen passed. And then if that wasn't enough, we had another full turkey dinner on Friday night so Allan could show off his cooking talent. And boy! is that Cricut Man talented!!! It so delish! I think I've lost my position as head chef for the holiday dinner. I'm not sure that's a bad thing ;-)
Here's the next in line of the holiday wobbly owl cards. I liked how this one turned out MUCH better than the silly one I did for Halloween. And something cool I wanted to point out on this one. . . .the back feathers - the ones punched with the scallop punch - used an old coffee sleeve. The puckered craft color paper was just perfect and added a little texture.
So next up for the owl cards is Christmas, then New Year's and finally Valentines. Once those are done it will be a full year of holiday owls. I have to tell you it's been pretty fun.
I'll leave you with another turkey project - and one that's much cuter than mine. Here's Mona's quirkey turkey placecards. She was inspired by this post on Tim Holtz's blog. Didn't they turn out cute? Can't wait to hear about how everyone in her family liked them.
