Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!!

If you would like to enter in my giveaway in honor of my new Granddaughter,  please go HERE

For this weeks Challenge me Monday at FCCB,  please click HERE or scroll down.

Wow, another post today! I am trying to make it before the deadline on a few challenges. It's been a bit crazy in this household lately so I am running a bit behind but I really wanted to play.

This will be a busy week for all of us with Thanksgiving in just a few days.  I am excited that all of my kids will be home for Thanksgiving this year. We have so much to be thankful for but I am most thankful for family and friends. I am looking forward to spending some quality time with them this week and the weekend!

I was able to sneak away and find a little time to create this card for a few challenges. I am struggling to get in my craft room this last few weeks. Things will settle down soon and I will be back on track.

The card base is 5 x 5, base layer 4.75 x 4.75. I cut the turkey from Animal Kingdom cartridge at 3 3/4 plus some of the layers. This turkey looks a little drunk or cross sided, don't ya think? LOL!

I added a pretty rosette in place of the feather layers.  I had to add some google eyes. Cute, ha?  I used the spellbinders-classic scalloped rectangles for the scallop layer. The sentiment is from Hero Arts. I topped it off with some fun bakers twine, lemon drop and maraschino from Scrappy Moms Stamps for a bow and a little yellow feather on her head.  Have a great day!

I am entering this in the following challenges:

1.) Die Cuttin Divas ~Turkey Time
2.) Whimsical Designs ~Happy Turkey Day
3.) Paper Cutz ~ Let's talk turkey-Thanksgiving and a turkey cut
4.) More Than Favors-Wacky Wednesday ~Thanksgiving Theme
5.) Robin's Creative Cottage ~Link Up Party. Robin has just revealed her two stamp set and they are for purchase now. You gotta go check them out-they are fantastic!
