Bloggers Challenge 177



Hi Everyone...This was such a fun Image done by Elizabeth O Dulemba. She not only does illustrations but is also the author of children's books. She does coloring book size images. Check her out at http://www.dulemba.com/ a lot of her images have to do with reading.

Next I did Torn Frame, from Technique Junkies Newsletter and faux hand made paper as seen on Gingersnaps Creations I forgot who posted it but it is great, simple easy, and makes a cool background. Last but definitely not least is my new Janome Mini sewing machine. I got it when they had a big blow out sale. I must admit having made most of my clothes and children's when I was younger this is sure one little power house. I used to have to pull my huge Kenmore out when ever I wanted to use stitching on cards or do a repair....but no more!!! My granddaughter even made two pillows using this machine! As part of home schooling we do sewing and other crafts. Okay enough right? Do you think I like my new little machine!!! LOL

When ever I think about November I think Thanksgiving and then I think of the poor turkey!!! So I always try to find an image that shows his plight!! This one was perfect!

Love it! My DH asked me if we were going to get a turkey this year (we host Thanksgiving every year!), and I laughingly told him we were going to get a ham (hello?!! What was he thinking?) -- I guess I should send him a card like this! TFS!
