Don't you love when you look through cartridges that you have had for a LONG time and you find new cuts that you either haven't noticed yet or just haven't gotten around to using? Well, that's what happened to me this go around.  I was looking for a fun Thanksgiving cut to use and this little turkey from Simply Charmed just jumped out at me and said "you've never even noticed me".  Well, I've noticed him now and I think he is the cutest little turkey ever!  I cut him out at 2 3/4" and embossed his "feathers" with Swiss Dots.  All my paper is from Doodlebug Designs "Happy Harvest" and my stamps are from "Happy Days" from CardzTV and "Life Is Good" from My Creative Time.  I do have a video to show you how it all came together, hope you'll check it out!  Please join us over at Cut It Up Challenges for our Thanksgiving challenge, I would love to see what you come up with!!! I am also going to be linking this up over at Die Cuttin' Divas, Craftin' Desert Divas, CardzTV, 2 Creative Chicks, My Creative Time, and Little Scrap Pieces challenges.
