Mmmmm...turkey!!!

Gobble Gobble...Happy Thanksgiving Day Canada!!!! Now that we live in the US, we celebrate Thanksgiving in November, but it still feels kinda weird not to have yummy turkey and apple pie in October! So, yesterday I baked an apple caramel pie...Yum-o!!!! (did you notice I said baked and not made...LOL!). It was our little way of getting in on the Thanksgiving celebration without going into a turkey coma. :)
So I simply had to use my Chefabella image from Stamping Bella on my card today. Could she be any more perfect to celebrate Thanksgiving with?!?

It's been way too long since I played in one of my friend Janet's Corrosive Challenges, so I used her October sketch challenge for this card. Thanks for a fab layout Janet! I just love how quickly this card came together.

I started by stamping Chefabella with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper then coloured her with copics. I used my octagon Nestabilities to cut her out then layered her onto a scalloped octagon of Prism Blush Red Dark.

The patterned paper is an old one from my stash, Imaginisce Out on a Whim. I really liked the little red dots...perfect for Canadian Thanksgiving!!! I added some brown felt ribbon then finished the card with six dark cocoa Glitter Dots.

Don't forget to check Bloggabella for this week's Bellarific Friday challenge. Hmmm...I wonder what fun stamping challenge Em has up her sleeve this week!

Thanks for stopping by!
