Bloggers Challenge-Give Thanks

  I am a little late with my challenge- had a wicked wicked headache this week and did not get alot accomplished.
   I finally got my Tom the Turkey from Dude Time Doodles put together- I had to chuckle when I saw this fun image. Aren’t you glad you can just go to the store and buy a turkey?  My husband and I are both from large families, my family has a ‘silly gene’- from Dad’s side of the family…… so I will send this to a sibling that will not attend the family gathering.
  I am working on figuring out why my (CanonSD1100) camera/computer seems to grey out all of my images- I photographed this against a black background- hmmm...any suggestions???


  The sketch is from Midnight Madness.  The DSP is from SU –the matching cardstock is Choc Chip and Barely Banana. The layer behind the image is embossed and lightly sanded and the yellow behind it is distressed. The punched border is MS. I did a border of sewing around the edge and tried my hand at doodling for the first time.  The image(s) is colored with Copics .
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

great card, this image is hilarious. Camera thing could be due to lighting. I know mine goes yellow sometimes against a white background because of the lighting.

I happen to think the photo is pretty good - it may be darker than you like, but the colors look reasonable, as if you used those actual colors in your card. It's a pretty funny card, I must say.

Croms' Cubby Hole said...

Great fun card. That turkey is cute.
Black always photographs better in natural light if poss with no flash.- if that helps
