CCC #20... Gobble, Gobble

{for my shining the light post, please scroll down}

hello!!  i'm back with my card for this week's CASology challenge.  here in the USA thanksgiving is just a few days away and our cue word this week is "gobble"!  how fun is that???  i can tell you that the design team has come up with some really clever cards!  this week we are joined by our super talented guest designer... donna!!  yay...woot, woot!!  you can find all the details for the challenge here.




i'm going to be real honest when i say that i was really worried about being able to come up with something for this week's CASology challenge.  when i saw the cue word "gobble" all i could think of was something food related... more specifically... turkey!  okay, i admit it i'm not the most original thinker... hee!!   but then i had another problem... only one small turkey stamp in my entirely too large stamp collection!  ugh... what to do, what to do??!!!  so i headed off to joann's to see what they might have in store for me and as i was wandering the papercrafting aisles i saw this little googly-eyed turkey peering at me from a package of k&co stickers.  an idea was finally forming, thank goodness!!   putting the card together was pretty simple... some die cutting, applying the sticker and then handwriting the sentiment on the little tag.  i was going to use the word "run" on the tag, but then i thought it would be funnier to use the word "yum" with the question mark.  i ran it past my 13 year old and he thought it was hilarious.  but honestly.. what does a 13 year old or me know? 

thanks for stopping by....make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Tracey, Jen, Ardyth and this week's guest designer, donna.    can't wait to see what you come up with using this week's cue word!

supplies:  cardstock:  stampin up! crumb cake & old olive; dies:  sizzix and pti; sticker:  k&co;  black micron pen

I have to admit that turkey was my first thought when I saw the cue word. I just adore your cute turkey - he does look a bit worried!!

I think it's hysterical, too, Rosemary! And stinkin' cute!!

I'm going to miss this week's CASology and it's just as well; I would be hard-pressed to come up with something "out of the box" for 'gobble.' Other than a turkey, I can only imagine a picture of me or any of the rest of the family 'gobbling' down all that yummy food like we've been away serving as Survivor contestants!!

Blessings! Darnell

Not too many times you can use a turkey on a card Rosemary...seeing Gobble as a cue word, I too, thought of this feathery bird :0)

I'm happy to hear that sometimes even the design team is stumped by the occasional cue word (I know it happens to me!)...I also love that you went to the craft store and found inspiration to make something using what you already had. Clever! I love your turkey and his funny message...your 13-year-old was right on! I hope you are having a very Happy Thanksgiving!
