Hi! I hope you all are prepared for the COLD weather that we are expecting this week. Sounds like a good time to stay in the craft room to me!
It's time for a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts today! Sandy is hosting the challenge this week and she chose a theme of "It's Turkey Time!" - add a Turkey to your card/project." I recently purchased this cute little Silhouette cut of "Owl Dressed As a Turkey" with this challenge in mind. I think he's adorable!
I was a little disappointed though, that I couldn't get my machine to cut him out after printing. I kept getting the message "Registration Failed". I thought that meant it couldn't read the registration marks because the black ink was getting low, so I put in a new cartridge and the ink was nice and dark, but it still failed. Any ideas from anyone???? So, I cut him out by hand. Then I used a black marker around the edge. I found this scrap of paper in my stash. I don't even know where it came from but I thought it was perfect for him! I added an oval in a brown, marbled paper (another scrap) to help separate the ginghams a little bit, then popped him up with foam dots. A little bit of orange burlap braided ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon with 3 brown flower brads and there you go!
Please go over to My Sheri Crafts and check out all the great projects there, then join us! Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you at MSC!
