Not sure, but it sounds like anything goes! Sounds like fun!

autisticwonder
11-01-2008, 07:46 PM
Anything goes is right SUE!!

I'm not going to make this SPECIFIC! What comes to your mind when you hear the word TURKEY DRESSING ??? Go with any ideas you have!

Do layout, tags, candy bar wrappers...WHATEVER...or just make extra elements, or papers..Whatever you feel more comfy with!

Create new shapes for it's clothing if that turns you on and share them with us!!

Example: For Thanksgiving...some folks don't eat the traditional TURKEY.. So you may want to work up your TURKEY as living it up on the beach somewhere taking a Holiday of it's own..and show a distressed PIG or some such thing..

Hoping you all have a funny bone that will get tickled with this challenge!!

Go for it ladies!!

I was in the midst of making a Thanksgiving Day kit so I will just share it here instead of as a kit. Hope yall like. I will be adding more if this splitting migraine headache goes away.

For the 2 place cards, the card is folded in half long ways and then you need to cut around the top part of shape of the scarecrow or pilgrims. Then you will have a stand up scarecrow or pilgrim.

I made the scarecrow and the pilgrims were from a free share clip art I found online.

Hey Sue..you've been a Mastermind a long time!! You can tell Crops how it feels to be one!! LOL

Carena made a good point..For Folks outside the US..Turkey's probably aren't as significant in November..So here's a CARD template and matching Envelope template for you to rearrange as you like for the Challenge for just fun! and to encourage us all to send a THANK YOU card to someone special to cheer them up! OR whatever you can think of!!

Shapes here for envelope and card fold.

Finished card size measures 4.75 inches wide and 3.75 inches tall.
