Gobble Gobble
Sweet Sketch 69
Sponsor: Sweet 'n Sassy

Gobble Gobble!!! I know it is only September but Thanksgiving is just around the corner for us here in the US! I will tell you straight is a big work day for Moms!!!! Now I have four children....all grown but not all married. I am looking forward to the day when they will all contribute to the fixins'. Just cooking the turkey would be the easy part for me. But I usually start two or three days ahead by making rolls and pies, cranberry sauce and salads. Well, I have a new double oven this why am I complaining... I have tried to buy rolls and pies but I get all kinds of complaints from my children because the rolls and pies are a tradition...and when you start a tradition you can't change it.... The problem was that... I didn't know it had become a tradition!

This little turkey is called Templeton Turkey. He is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. They are our sponsor this week at SSW! Yes, their images are sweet 'n sassy! So be sure to look around their site. Sweet 'n Sassy is offering a very Sweet 'n Sassy prize of a

  1. Great card Judi, love the flower! I know what you mean about the cooking. I started with my special roast potatoes and stuffing, five years on now and i'm regretting it hugely. LOL!!

  2. Thanksgiving is in less than two weeks here in Canada - we celebrate it WAY sooner than our US friends. So I don`t think you are jumping the gun at all LOL!!!

    Looks like a perfect flower to me!! (and just a darling card altogether)!!!!!

    Deanne :)

  3. Judi, those flowers of Deanne's are an inspiration, and yours is grand!!!! Perfect for Templeton!!! Great fun colors, but then I love the colors of fall. I don't mind making Thanksgiving dinner, I just wish someone else would come in and clean it all up!!!!!


  4. Oh Judi, you made your turkey just come alive!! He is sooo cute! And yes, you did good on copying Deanne's flowers. It is gorgeous!
    I agree with Linda...everyone seems to disapear when it is tme to clean up!

  5. I can just imagine you and your family around the table with loads of homemade food....I hope they help you clear up afterwards! Fab card this week....that flower is brilliant.

    It's been a pleasure working with you on SSW, thanks for the experience and inspiration.

  7. There's nothing better than mom's cookin' on Thanksgiving! Your turkey card is just great, and I love all of the fall colors.

    Peace & Luv,

  8. Hi Judi, I am so sorry I did not realized that I missed commenting on your wonderful Tom the Turkey card!! I must of gotten sidetracked somewhere along my commenting. But, I am here now to tell you how sweet this little turkey is. I just love how you colored him up so beautifully to match your lovely fall papers. Oh and I adore your flower, it the perfect compliment for your card.

  9. Gorgeous Judi! I love the fab colours & the big flower is sweet. I'm hungry now after reading your post ;)
