MelJen's Challenge this week is to make a Thanksgiving themed card or a card that has a Thank You vibe. Thanksgiving images are always a challenge for me. I have not eaten turkey in over a decade of being a vegetarian and coloring a turkey always tests my memory. This turkey image called "Turkey Shooter" is perfect for the man in your life. This is a turkey that will not lay down and take it this Thanksgiving.
I colored my image with Copic markers. I used paper from K&Co, that I had in my stash and ribbon and cardstock from PTI. I added a sentiment, dimentionals, and some leaf brads. I participated in the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge for inspiration.
This year I am thankful for many things. For my wonderful daughter and husband. For the love of five furballs. I am infinately thankful that although I am still in pain that I have been able to return to many of my pre-injury activities, although modified. I went from riding a road bike to a recumbent. I am still able to participate in agility. Although, my sweet lab Maddie is retired due to age and Panda is retired due to some arthritis in her shoulders, my little rescue Pearl is shaping up to be a great agility dog. I am thankful also for the support of family and friends. Nature, whether it is in the plants, animals or just the sound of the flapping of bird wings has brought me hope and happiness. My ability to sew and quilt and craft brings me infinate satisfaction and fulfills my deep drive to be creative.
