Happy Thanksgiving

I did not have too much time for crafting lately because of Mr Penguin but I wanted to make a little something for Thanksgiving day ... I remembered that I still had some painted leaves from my previous journal project. They were just too nice to be thrown away. After covering one with Diamond Glaze I looked at it intently and thought that the leave would make a really lovely plumage for a Turkey (lol)
Mr Turkey himself is a digital image from LoriBoyd Design. I cut out the image and coloured it with colouring pencils and covered it with Glossy Accounts. Using the wonderful sketch from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 
I layered American Crafts paper on a square white card, did some machine stitching around the edges and added some white squares and a Waltzing Mouse sentiment.
Wishing you all a lovely and wonderful Thanksgiving day and evening from wet and stormswept England, Petra.
