Happy Thanksgiving

Hello friends and happy Friday!!
I'm looking forward to the weekend for sure.
I plan to do some shopping so I have food
for our Thanksgiving.  
I'm hoping that I  haven't waited too long
and there are still some smaller turkeys 
available.  The last time I waited this
long I had to buy a very large bird.
Suffice it to say that we had LOTS of 
left overs and we wanted ham the next year :o)

But...before I can get to the weekend  
I need to get myself off to work - so I best 
get on with this post and out the door.

I colored this darling image over a week ago 
but finally got my card finished last night
take a look please:
Stamp "Merry" by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

I'm pretty sure this stamp was intended to be
a Christmas stamp (her name is Merry and she
comes with a Christmas sentiment) but with the big 
turkey in the pan I decided to make it into 
a Thanksgiving card.  

Really looking forward to time with family
and some delicious food.
Our Thanksgiving tradition is to serve
scalloped oysters with the turkey - yum!
What's yours?

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  5. Love this image, and I think it's perfect for Thanksgiving! Love the plaid background and the leaves you added! Thanks for playing along with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge this week! My husband's side of the family always had an oyster casserole with their turkey dinner....not my taste though, I love my husband's cranberry relish much better!
