Cutie Fruitie Patootie

Good morning everyone! Wasn't the blog hop yesterday so much fun? The winner of the blog hop grand prize will be announced on the Squigglefly Blog sometime today, so be sure to check later to see if you won!

What could make it any better? I'll tell you what, all the wonderful new images you saw the last few days are available today at Squigglefly! Run over and start creating your own awesome creations, and be sure to share them with Squigglefly while you're there because they love seeing customer's art and putting it in the gallery!

One more bit of news and then I'll show you my card. Tonight at 7 pm CST (8pm EST) we have the digi day (why do they call it digi day when it takes place at night?) at Squigglefly's group on Card Universe. Stef aka Gliterbabe will be hosting with a recipe challenge and I'll be hosting a sketch challenge. There will be prizes for each challenge and we will have some fun! Besides, your husbands will be watching football anyway!

Okay, today's card uses another of Crissy's new images Meet Mr. Turkey!

(click to enlarge)

He's colored with copic markers and highlighted with a white gel pen. I chalked the sky and ground, and then over stamped the chalked ground with a grass sprigs stamp.
I used some gold brads in the center of the wheels.

I found the perfect ribbon and button in my stash! The ribbon has green and red apples on it, and the button is kind of hard to see in the photo, but it's a shiny red apple with a gold leaf.

I cut the image out with the largest nestabilities label die, and then cut another one out of brown and cut it in half so it could mat the two sides of the image panel. I used a speckled background stamp on the card and computer printed my sentiment.

Well, thanks for visiting me today and I hope to see you this evening at the digi day event!
