Do I Look Like a Freakin' Turkey?!

Yesterday, Hobchob, our blind house gnome, went out to try and slay a turkey for the Thanksgiving Feast. Unfortunately, his lack of sight made that task rather difficult. An angry little monster ended up dragging Hobchob back to the Guild Hall by his ear after the house gnome tried to cut off his head, mistaking him for the large bird he sought. The orange monster tossed Hobchob into the Guild Hall, looked at me with his beady green eyes and shouted, "DO I LOOK LIKE A FREAKIN TURKEY TO YOU?!" I apologized for the blind house gnome's mistake and sent someone with two working eyes to fetch our bird.

I started by cutting out the "tag" from the Art Philosophy cartridge. Then I stamped and coloured with Prismacolors the super cute Goat Monster image from Stampotique. I finished off the tag by inking the edges with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink. I embossed a rectangular piece of paper and inked it up with some Rusty Hinge as well, creating the base for the sentiment. I used the Stampotique "Do I look like a freakin' people person" stamp and cut up the words, adding "turkey" at the end created from Lawn Fawn's "Jessie's ABCs". This move earned me +59 knowledge exp points.
The inside sentiment was a mixture of stamps. Happy came from the "Family & Friends" My Pink Stamper set. The blimmin came from the "Christmas Words" Dylusions set and Thanksgiving was created using Lawn Fawn's "Jessie's ABCs." The edges were again inked using Rusty Hinge.
I didn't really know what to stamp on the envelope to make it "match"...I went with a pie {lol}. What is a Thanksgiving Feast without a pie (or numerous pies as my lady mother tends to make)? The cute lil pie came from Lawn Fawn's "My Silly Valentine" set. 

I will enter this non-traditional Thanksgiving card into the following challenges:

Poor Hobchob just wanted to help out. The Lady Commander of Copics and I ended up inviting the vexed little monster to our Thanksgiving Festival where he was able to make amends with our blind little house gnome while we enjoyed feasting upon a turkey carcass. They both ended up drinking two flagons of wine and playing drunken games. I suppose all was forgiven. Another great holiday at the Crafters Guild Hall.
