Thanksgiving Postcards - Don't eat me!

I got so caught up in making Christmas cards for my shop, I completely forgot that I need to make AND mail out Thanksgiving cards! Where did this month go???

I used my favorite Paper Smooches stamp set "My Peeps" and mixed a couple of phrases from their "Sentiment Sampler" set as well. I was up quite late last night with my colored pencils and inks, and I made a couple Turkey postcards...

And I wish the sun didn't start going down at 1 o'clock in the afternoon so I could get some good pictures! Anyways. I stamped the turkey body, then stamped three of the feathers, colored in with my beloved color pencils. Then I stamped, colored, and cut out two other feathers to layer on top. And I knew he was missing something, so I went back and stamped him a little pilgrim hat. Such a sweetie!

I made another one that's just a slight variation. I also made these for the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger. I thought the autumn colors were great, and this pattern paper from Colorbok has touches of aqua just like the photo!

I couldn't pick which one I liked better, so you get both. I think the strip of super glittery orange ribbon adds the perfect amount of bling :)

Have a great weekend before Thanksgiving! Get that grocery shopping finished ;)

  1. The turkey stamp is too cute! I like the second card better, something about the paper being on an angle.

  2. I love these! The paisley is great and I love that color combination. Simple and classic but still sparkly. LOL

  5. So FUN, Rachel. Love this turkey image and blingy orange ribbon always works for me :o)

  6. I looove that turkey!! Your choice to color him with colored pencils is perfect. The turkey reminds me of the Mo Willems' Pigeon. (From the children's book "Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus") Love the pigeon. Love the turkey!
