So, this week you have a lot of leeway in considering how to fulfill this theme and your only limitations are those you impose on yourself. Do you use food motifs on your cards? Do you enjoy cooking for family and what do you like to make? Just a few ideas to throw out there!
I have two options to share with you on my approach to this theme:
The first is a simple card. The checked paper makes me think of a tablecloth and the circles for the center are reminiscent of a diner plate. So, here's one sassy take.
The other take I have is this link to my personal blog where I talk about food and Thanksgiving. I am hosting Thanksgiving for the first time in years (although I've cooked at all the interim ones) and I'm excited but a bit behind the eight ball when it comes to being prepared! Oh well, it will all work out!
I took a bit of a different approach. I journaled about cooking in an album I am creating which is all about ME. I took an online class where we were to document ourselves using the alphabet. Sounds really silly. And to some it might be. But to me it was difficult to seperate my likes/desires/habits from those of my family. It seems as though most of my time is spent taking care of others and catering to those others' needs/wants. I am still working on finishing this project. My goal is before the end of the year. Sort of like a Christmas gift to myself. (Click on the photo to see what I wrote.)
So, let's see what YOU cook up!
Here's who accepted the Tom the Turkey challenge last week!
We also received another absolutely adorable card from Jess - check out the googley eyes on Tom and the beautiful coloring on his lovely feathers! Also notice how she used Tom's hat! She has a great eye for composition on her cards doesn't she?
Our buddy Electra used Tom to remind us to have an attitude of gratitude for our blessings. He looks very resplendent in his feathers and T is for Thankful!
and last, but certainly not least, a card from our benefactress of this adorable image - Miss Kristen and her take on Tom in card form - fun, fresh, and just a little sassy. That's our Kristen as well!
So, take a break and take on our challenge - we'd love to see what you make of it!
