Cathy’s Birthday Bash Blog hop…… Let’s Talk Turkey!

Welcome to Cathy’s Birthday Bash blog hop and Happy Thanksgiving!

If you've come from visiting Cathy’s blog, Crafting with Mimi you're in the right place!

I am also excited to announce that I am giving away a Snowman’s Prayer Stamp set thanks to Robin at Robin’s Creative Cottage. To enter, you need to be a subscriber/follower of my blog. You can sign up over on the left side of this blog (if you are not there already). Just leave a comment on this post and the winner will be announced on Monday November 28th.


Here is the card I created for Cathy’s birthday! I wanted a fun birthday card combined with a Thanksgiving theme.


The outside of the card measures 4 ¾ x 6 3/8 inches. The turkey and layers are from the Create A Critter Cartridge and are cut at 3.66 inches using my Gypsy. I hand cut a band and square for the hat and added a sentiment using Word. I got the idea from the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog and modified the card to make it a fun birthday card! I used a punch for the border and added some white faux stitching.


For the inside of my card, I used Word for the sentiment.

Recipe:
Cricut “Create a Critter” Cartridge
DCWV " Celebration Stack "
Card stock from my stash
Word for the sentiment
Gelly Roll medium white pen for stitching

Your next stop is  Creations by Shirl. When you're done, stop over and wish Cathy a happy birthday and join the linky party! Hope you are having a Happy Thanksgiving!
