BBTB2 - Turkey

Our Fab Brenda is hostess today for our Bitten By The Bug 2 Challenge, she chose a turkey for us today.  Please visit our Challenge site for some great inspiration and fun.  Remember your challenge must be a cut from one of the Cricut cartridges.  Our challenge rules are posted at the top of our site.  Come play and have fun this week as we explore Turkeys.

This is a 6X6 card, the background paper is one of my designs, the Turkey was cut from Cricut cart "Thanksgiving" and then colored with Copic markers.  The "Blessings" sign is from Dawn Inksip - Count Your Blessings" kit.  The border on the left edge is a jute bow border.  Here is how to create one,  you will need 9 1/2" of string, jute, ribbon etc, Start off with three pieces. Tie 2 of the pieces into a bow, then lay the bows side by side touching, through the two inside loops pull the other piece of string through and tie it into a bow, you now have your starter for the boarder, keep going as long as it takes to create the length you desire.

This is my last post as a Design Team Member for BBTB2, I would like to say what an honor it has been working with all these talented women.  I have become totally involved with my Silhouette Cameo and desperately need some extra time to get to know it better and explore its many features.  I am also running out of physical work space, so for now I will be storing my Cricuts to make all this possible.  I will still visit the BBTB Blogs and gather inspiration.  Good Luck to everyone on the team in all your adventures in the coming year, stay safe, stay creative and be happy, hugs
