Sundays with Crissy Challenge #22--Thanksgiving

Hi Everyone!
YAY! A new month means it's a new challenge at Sundays with Crissy!! So here I am with my 'Crissy's Crew' card to show you!

Our theme for October is THANKS/THANKSGIVING. That means "Thanks" or "Thanksgiving" cards are welcome for this challenge!

Now we don't celebrate 'Thanksgiving' here in Australia, but I have lots of lovely friends in the US and Canada who do - all of whom I'm very thankful for! (Not to mention that Crissy made such a cute turkey image that I wanted to play with hehe!)
So I've chosen Crissy's "Turk in Boots" image, available from Whimsy Stamps for my 'Thanksgiving' card. Though I think I'm the turkey 'cause I have to admit I actually don't know what colour a turkey is.... So I took a wild-turkey guess and just had fun!
What do you think?

And the angled view...

So now it's your turn... I'd love you to Gobble your way back over to the Sundays with Crissy blog and play along too - You can enter your creation at Sarah's Post - HERE-!

But I guess all the challenges seem to be Thanksgiving or Fall right now... and my little turkey is dressed in Fall colours standing in Autumn trees... so he fits! Clever little turkey.... And hopefully everyone will want one of Crissy's Turkey's for Thanksgiving!

Hope you all have a fabulous week, and have loads to be Thankful for!
