Picking Time! 3CTC39, Stamp Something Sketch Challenge

It finally stopped raining here in New England. I don't normally mind a rainy day but I have been home sick with something that knocked me right off my feet, yesterday was the first day I got up and got dressed and tried to face the world still not feeling 100% but wanting some fresh air without the downpours.

This stamp is one of Crissy Armstrong's on Squigglefly. Isn't this one of the cutest turkeys you've ever seen and I love that it's a digi. This card was made for a sketch this week from Stamp Something Challenge Blog. It is a really fun sketch that worked perfectly with this image I think. I also made it for Kerry's fun Thursday challenge, 3CTC39, use a bird or bug on your creation.I printed out the turkey twice and cut out the front part of the turkey and popped up the turkey from the shirt up to give him some depth. His feet and bottom I just glue dotted down so he looked like he was still attached to his feathered backside.

I am one who has a comfort zone and don't realize how much I'm in it until I get knocked out of it. I must always cover my whole card with DP. There are so many out there that are perfect that I always reach for them. Well I didn't have any that went with this plaid. It was a scrap I had that I loved. I don't even know who makes it. I decided to just stamp on the red CS with fall leaves in red. It shows up IRL but not in the pick. I am not really crazy about it since it is not the norm for me. It is times like this that I will pull the card apart many times(often ruining some part of it in the process) trying to change it. This time I finished it and am posting before I give myself the chance to go at it again. Thanks for letting me vent so I can move on!
