I'm Talking Turkey!

Oh my, Thanksgiving is one week from today! Are you ready? The Cutting Cafe design team is in full Thanksgiving mode today, posting projects with a thankful theme.  Well, nothing says Thanksgiving like turkey!
This super fun cutting file can be found here in the Cutting Café store.  This turkey shaped card is BIG.  His wing span is about 6 1/2 inches.  But don't worry -- he also comes with a matching envelope cutting file!
I used Kraft card stock for the base of this card, then a layer of Close To My Heart Chocolate card stock, then layered on Little Yellow Bicycle Acorn Hollow 6x6 papers.  The "give Thanks" sentiment is a Joy's Life stamp -- from the "It's All Fall Puns" set.  You can find it in the Joy's Life Store here.  I used two Viva Décor pearl pens for the finishing touches on this turkey -- an anthracite pearl pen on the eyes, and a white pearl pen on the body and feathers.
I'm getting very close to 300 followers.  If I get that number this week, I'll have a drawing using this post. I've been buying goodies and saving them for quite awhile, hoping to hit the 300 follower mark. If you don't already follow my blog, I'd love it if you do.  Then, leave a comment on this post.  To increase your chances to win, comment on the other posts this week.
Check out The Cutting Café blog in the next day or two to see the wonderful projects from the rest of the design team. Leave a comment on the blog and you could win 3 free sets of your choice. How fun is THAT?
