Let's Get Basted Thanksgiving Card – Little Red Wagon #681

It's Doni's turn to choose the challenge at Little Red Wagon this week and she's saying, 'Let's eat!, which means she wants to see any kind of food. Grab a bite and come join us!

Before I go on about the card, I want to take this opportunity and wish all my fellow Americans a very Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow! As a Franco/American living in France, I have to admit I don't often observe the holiday in any outward way, but I have plenty of memories to warm my heart, and I do still enjoy sending cards to American friends and family. This now defunct Whimsie Doodles Let's Get Basted digital stamp is a Thanksgiving go-to. Oh, how I miss Whimsie Doodles! Humorous digis are the hardest to find and she had some truly funny ones (this  long ago Thonging Valentine is one of my husband's favorites). 

Paper is bits and pieces from my scraps file. I've dressed up the digi with my ever faithful ric-rac die and some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ebony Black.

  3. I miss Whimsie Doodles too and youʻve reminded me I have quite a collection of their digis that I must dust off and use. I love your beautiful papers and of course your coloring of this fun digi.

  4. Oh My, how funny and adorable is this Turkey. I wish it were possible to still get this image, I've not heard of Whimsy Doodles and wish I had. Thanks for sharing your lovely project with us at the Paper Funday Challenge.
