Let's Talk Turkey

So do you remember Far Side comics? Well My hubby had a whole slew of these t-shirts and one of my favorites is the scene of the Midvale school for the gifted with a kid pushing on a door that says pull. SO when I saw Heather asking for opinions on some of her stamps I immediately fell in love with this one because it just had that same look and I love hilarious images that are fun to color. Well imagine my surprise when a little while later I find this image in email to play with! I was ecstatic and could not wait to put him into a card...even though I had to wait to get other priorities out of the way. This is a digital image and it is available from Heather's new venture into her own shop called Fresh Brewed Designs. She really has fabulous images and many themed around the elixir of life...coffee. LOL.

For this card, I colored Tom up with copics and thought a clean design was called for to showcase the image. The DP is from K&Company fall papers. The sentiment is also digitally created. Can you believe I came up with those funny words? Hubby laughed when he saw it. Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
