Two years into marriage, I remember purchasing a turkey breast for a special Thanksgiving dinner for my husband and I. Not a whole turkey where I'd be too frightened to cook it and not the turkey lunch meat we usually got, but a compromise. I remember feeling icky that Thanksgiving evening (our first born would arrive just one month later) so in the freezer it went. Sometime around mid-January I excitedly prepared the turkey breast and a few fixing and just as I pulled this gorgeous looking mini-turkey out of the oven, we got a knock on our door. It was the neighbors coming by for a visit to see the baby. I put the turkey back in the oven to keep it warm so we could have a short, social visit. By the time the guests left, the turkey and the fixins were cold... That is my version of the origination of cold turkey.

My first card to show today, the one above, uses the cute Thanksgiving Wishes set that features a Sugar Kissed Cottage images and a few corresponding sentiments that I got to design. I colored the image with marker and lightly brushed everything with some distress ink. The background is from the interior Textured Frame and the sentiment has been trimmed out with the Sentiment Flag.
This next card features the new fabulous die set, Balloons and a corresponding sentiment stamp set, You're Invited (that I designed!)! Lil' Inker Designs really has such fun dies with cute details, but this die is something I've never seen before. You have the capability to create custom designs with a "punch out" die! I used the dies as a masking tool on this card.
(And for those of you wondering: I have yet to cook a whole turkey, eleven years later!)
