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 :)

  4. Nancy,
    your card is absolutely wonderful! The inside sentiment is perfect! Whoever receives this awesome card will be doing a happy dance!

  5. This is a great card, what a good idea to use a recipe page for the base - I love the sepia colour.

  6. Hi Nancy! Sorry I haven't stopped by to visit mom passed away and things have been crazy. I'm now getting back info the swing of things so hopefully I won't be such a stranger. Great card...I can smell the turkey now...what time is!

  7. Nancy, this is wonderful. Love the cookbook page background, creative idea!!


  8. Such a great idea for the background - too clever!! Great card and such an apt sentiment :)

  9. Wonderful inside sentiment to go with your turkey. Your bg is perfect for this great card.

  10. You read my mind....yes I was wondering what it said What a great sentiment. This card is awesome for Thanksgiving. I love fried turkey too....yum. Super terrific card!

  11. This is such an awesome card! You used this image so well! Love it! :)

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This

Milkshake Malt Porter and a Bit of Art

 Hello friends and Happy T-day. It has been hit or miss with me lately on T-day posts. The remodel of our house next door has taken our mental and physical energy.  I think a few more weeks and things will be on the contractor instead of us.  Hopefully I will be back to normal by then. My Oldest Darling Daughter asked if we wanted to come for dinner Saturday.  Translation:  go to the store with me and we will bring part of dinner to your house and you cook the rest.  While at the store, I saw one 6 pack of this fun milkshake porter so, of course, I bought it.  It smells wonderful (a hint of chocolate and a hit of malt) and has a light creamy taste.  I would definitely buy it again if I see it.  My son-in-law did not like it, but he is more a  Miller Lite fan.  Now if this had been a whiskey, he would have been all over it.  LOL.  Linking this to Elizabeth's blog for the T-party gang. Darling Daughter had tried her hand at dried pintos, and she rocked them (I will begging for a rep
