The newest Can You Digi It? challenge is is Giving Thanks. The inspiraton board is incrediably fun:


I zeroed in on that turkey as I am seriously craving one of my hubby's fried turkeys! He does such a wonderful job with them and makes at least two every Thanksgiving so I always get plenty!


I used the fun new Betty Edwards Turkey image available at Can You Digi It? I realize now that I should have colored the garnish green so it doesn't look wilted, but I am going with this anyway as the friend I am sending it too will laugh even more because of the wilted garnish. My bg is a page out of a recipe book. For those of you who are wondering what the inside says...

"It is all about the best ingredients, a good recipe,
and just the right amount of time in the heat."

Hope you are all having a wonderful week! Hugz!

  1. Outstanding idea to use that cook book page as your backdrop. The wilted greens got a laugh from me because it reminded me of a Thanksgiving at our house many years ago when that actually happened. The twine is a great add on as I pictured your turkey legs being tied with that twine. A total winner. Enjoy your week.

  2. Fabulous card and such a great idea to use a page out of an old cookbook. I use old book pages, but didn't think about old cookbooks. Something else for me to start hoarding - I mean saving. :-P

  3. Love how you used a page from a cook book! Great BG for this turkey image. We enjoyed ours a few weeks ago (Canadian Thanksgiving is in October) and it was yummy :)
