Christmas Turkey and more!

 Hi Everyone, my card today is another Christmas card I had to make, yep! to go with another poem by Gill Reed. Her poems are so funny and just as I had this done she went and sent another! She definitely wants to keep me busy LOL.

Anyhow, here is my card, I had this wonderful digital image in my files which I think is absolutely perfect for this poem. How lucky is that? I coloured the image in Photoshop. I printed the papers and cut the image and sentiment with a die, then painted shadows onto the image with markers. I fussy cut the star and added metallic thread, a never before used item! I came across it looking for something else and decided to add it.

papers - Inspired Designs (2012)
thread - Crafting Threads, The Range
markers - Spectrum Noir
die - Tonic
sentiment - my own
poem - Gill Reed

This is the poem that I just had to accompany with my card.

We had a turkey for Christmas
It was resplendent to be sure,
It was placed at the head of the table,
Close to the kitchen door.
We had a turkey for Christmas
It was the thing to do,
Tradition in our household,
Has always seen us through.
We had a turkey for Christmas
Mother was in a state,
Making sure it had rested well
Before she would get out its plate.
We had a turkey for Christmas
It’s trimmings were sublime,
I’ve never seen a turkey look,
So good at Christmas time.
We had a turkey for Christmas,
We shared in its delight,
And decided there and then to have it
Once again on Boxing night.
We had a turkey for Christmas
It’s now back on the farm
Because we’re vegetarians,
We just enjoyed its charms.
