Happy Turkey Day eve!!

Hello everyone!! My son asked me to make something for his teacher who just had a baby girl. We made 3 little onesies with the cutest sayings and embellishments (cut with my cricut from fabric and ironed on). I forgot to take pics of them! I covered the stars on the outside of this little box with little baby girl things. All cut at 3" from various carts. I thought it came out really cute.
Enjoy!
Looking forward to black friday shopping! I'll be headed out bright and early myself. Even if it's just to get some Cricut lites at walmart for $20! so cool! I would LOVE one of the colored expressions but now is the time to shop for others I keep telling myself. I have to send my big E back anyway for a replacement. Its freezing and all sorts of technical issues. Hope I get it back before all the holiday crafts needing to get done!! well, Happy Thanksgiving all!! Be safe out there if you go shopping and treasure all the moments spent with family and friends!

Almost Turkey Day!!

I LOVE LOVE Thanksgiving!! My favorite holiday. I look forward mostly to my mother's stuffing...YUMMY!! I have to work this year so I'll make it myself. Not the same as mom's though. I made a few decorations with my cricut and Gypsy. They came out so cute. My hubby who NEVER comments on my crafty things even said they were cute. Enjoy!!

Happy Turkey days ahead and happy holiday season!!

This turkey was cut from Designers Calendar. I cut the shadow with vinyl using the flip feature. I then cut the turkey using the flip feature with Martha Stewart paper and placed it on the vinyl. The shadow was just enough to stick to the window! so Cute!! I cut the Give Thanks from the same cartridge.






This turkey was cut at about 10 1/2" from create a critter. I used patterned paper and stuck it to my wall with glue dots. So cute!




This was cut at about 10 1/2" as well using everyday paper dolls. I used stampin up paper and hung them with glue dots. Peachy Keen stamps for the face of course!




Indian boy is from Everyday paper dolls. cut at 10 1/2" as well. DCWV paper, Peach Keen stamps for the face, hung with glue dots.
