Throwback Thursday Challenge #7
I made this card for My Creative Time with Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge #7. Check out her blog by clicking on her blinkie button on this blog under Favorites. The challenge was to make a card for your favorite holiday using the Wild Card cartridge or any other cartridge if you don't own that one. Since I don't have Wild Card I used two other cartridges along with my Gypsy to make this card. Create A Critter cartridge is not an old cartridge but since I've only had my Cricut since March I don't have many of the older cartridges. I used the Create A Critter for the surfing turkey. The surf board, wave and 'hang loose' hand all come from the Life is a Beach cartridge. I'm sure you are wondering how in the world I came up with the idea of a surfing turkey! I'm not quite sure! I guess I was trying to incorporate an older cartridge and when Life is a Beach came to mind I was thinking beachy thoughts which I incorporated with my favorite holiday of Thanksgiving! It's so hot here that my brain is probably just fried! If nothing else this card is original ;-)
This is a 6 inch by 6.25 inch card and will fit in a 6x9 envelope. I designed the card on my Gypsy. As you can see the turkey opens to reveal the sentiment. I did this by making two turkey shadows, flipping one upside down and then welding them together at the top of their hats.

I hope you enjoyed my surfing turkey card! Since I live in Southern California I think it's appropriate and fun and I can hardly wait till November to send it to some friends who are surfers. But they're not turkeys!
