{Avocado Arts} It's That Turkey Again!



Today, the entire Avocado Arts Pit Crew has loads of inspiration to share with you! We've all made cards featuring the October release, Gobble Til You Wobble, with sneak peeks of the upcoming November release, Very Merry Christmas. I used four papers from Basic Grey's Clippings paper pad to create the setting for the hearth and to paper piece the ridiculous turkey. He's lucky there's no fire going, otherwise he'd be roasted. LOL The turkey along with the wheat bundle and sentiment are from Gobble Til You Wobble. I fussy cut the wheat bundle wishing that I had my Cameo already. I love fussy cutting but a Cameo would've made it much easier and quicker! My sneak peeks from Very Merry Christmas are the fireplace and logs. I simply stamped the fireplace on kraft cardstock and embossed it in a woodgrain folder to give it texture. You are going to love the November release which is perfect for the holidays!
