Turkey Dinner

 I managed to put together another Christmas card over the long Bank Holiday weekend, it does take a while when the garden needs tending, the dog needs walking and Mum needs sorting out - but finally, it's finished!

This is the Turkey Dinner stamp by LOTV, one of my old favourites because it has a puppy and that huge turkey, not to mention that pud on top of the stove, they are going to enjoy their festive dinner to be sure! I've coloured with my Copics and added just a touch of sparkle to the pup's Christmas hat.

Here's the card:

As I said, I started this card last week, after seeing that the Winter Wonderland blog challenge was for Festive Food and knowing I had this stamp already in my Christmas 'half-made' pile.  I also had the background paper all layered up on the card so it was a matter of layering up my image to match and adding my die cut snippets - another one for Pixie's Snippets Playground - and thank you Diane for sharing my Rudolph card, I am glad you liked it!  I will almost always have snippets on my makes as I love to use my Marianne Design dies for embellishing, I think they add interest without too much sticking up so can go through the post!

On this card I used the mini poinsettia die LR0142 along with leaves from the bigger poinsettia set LR0122.  The pine cones are from set LR0286 and the holly sprays from LR0244. I coloured the white pearls with a Copic red to match in with everything, oh and I nearly forgot, the text is cut twice with die LR0225 then layered up.

And thank you to from Scraps of Life for letting me know about the Rudolph Days challenge on her blog with fabulous prizes, starting on the 25th of each month until the end of the month, and always anything goes, so here's my entry!

The Christmas Card blog challenge is anything goes, so I'm entering with them too.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my creations, hope to see you here again soon!


  1. Oh Annie, this is absolutely fabulous! LOTV again, sigh - I love their products. Iadore how you added the tiny detail of the greens in the image even matching the die cut leaves. So glad you came back to play and also to see that you're joining in with Rudolph Day too - you'll find that a lot of Snippets Playground playmates are also Rudolph Day gals! Both are very supportive and happy little bunches of people too.
