Enchanted Turkeys

Today the house gnomes were busy getting the menu prepared for the quickly approaching Winter Festival. Olga was preparing a turkey when suddenly she shrieked and ran out of the kitchens. I looked at her in confusion as she ran past me and poked my head in to see what had happened. I was surprised to see a live turkey running around the kitchen, with bits of stuffing come from its rear end. 

I started this card by stamping the Kraftin’ Kimmie “Merry” image and colouring her with Prismacolor pencils. I cut the lattice looking background part out using the Artbooking cartridge, earning myself +33 holey exp points...not really sure what I will do with those. The sentiment is a Unity stamp, and just fits so perfectly with this image - lol.

On the inside I used another Unity stamp for the sentiment and frame and then stamped the oven mitts that came with “Merry” onto patterned paper and cut them out.

The envelope was stamped using the Dylusions “Christmas Borders” set and coloured in with Distress Markers.

This tasty card will cook up a storm in the following challenges:
Desert Island Crafters Challenge #68 (2-die cuts 4-twine 10-red/green)

“Where did you get this turkey!?” I called to Olga.
She poked her head around the corner. “From the market, mi’lady. There was a travelling caravan selling them for a very good deal.”
“I am fairly certain these are enchanted,” I said struggling to catch the wild bird, slipping on bits of stuffing.
I suppose I’ll have to cast some detect magic spells on the rest of the food now, lest it come alive during Christmas dinner!
