The Turkey I made! I learned how to make this turkey from our SU card club, isnt he cute?????? I did add a bow to my card, and change the shape that the sentiment is on, it wouldnt fit on the other.
Directions to make this cute little turkey are below.
To create the turkeys feathers:
Step 1: count five scallope, and fold that portion of the circle down, as shown to the left.
Step 2: Turn circle over and mark the center at the top and the bottom, now count two scallops, and score from there to center. Like shown. do that on both sides of the circle.
Step 3: fold flat edge down from each side so folded edges line up with the middle.
Turkey card you will need:
Choc chip: 1 3/8 circle for the body and one scallop circle punch for the feathers.
More Mustard: 3/4 circle for the head.
Real Red: 1/4 circle for the buttons and one scallop circle for feathers.
Old Olive: scallop circle for feathers.
Basic Black: 3/4 square trimmed down for hat, double circle punch for eyes.
Pumpkin Pie: Boho blossems for his feet and a petal from one of the flowers for his beak. Adhere feathers to your card , and glue all punches to form a fine feathered friend!!

From Juile: "Amber is a wonderful friend of mine from here at home (we attend the same church). For the last page, I focused on a picture from last week - I was blessed enough to have just gotten back from the infamous Stamp & Cruise which I went on with Amber & Charmaine. The stamp set was perfect for this project as I was able to just ink "Friend" for the first 4 pages to play out my theme! Everything just went together perfectly!"
It was our pleasure to have Julie as our Guest Royal Court member this month. We will be taking a break for December and will start up January with TWO new Guest Designers. That's right!! We have 2 designers to share with you in January.

Here's a snipit from Julie on her tag book: "I decided to make the tag booklet as a little reminder of some of the wonderful friends I have in my life . . . there is no way I could fit them all so I had to pick who to include based on who I had pictures of - lol! :) The first one was obvious, my wonderful hubby! The next 2 (Kim & Charmaine) are friends I have met and made through blogging."
I am loving this little tag book. QKD sent her some stuff from the October kit of the month and she really put it to work! Way to go Julie.
We have some fun planned throughout the week here and on PCP at our group. So make sure you stop by both places and check in all week. Wednesday is our actual birthday and we will have a huge blog hop with challenges and prizes that day. Don't miss it!
Until next time.. Happy Stamping.

"I live in Maine and am a SAHM of 4 beautiful children, Emma (6), Anna (almost 5), Ethan (3), and Aaron (18 months). My husband Jeff is a chemist in a small laboratory in New Hampshire. While I have always loved to do crafty things, I began stamping seriously as a hobby about the time our first daughter was born. I became a SU! demo several years ago and after starting a blog last year have discovered a whole wonderful world of stamping goodness!! There are so many wonderful stamp companies and general and talented stampers out there that I have been privileged to know! My work has been published in Paper Crafts magazine and will be in Cards magazine in March 2009."
