Thanksgiving Digital Stamp

Hello everyone,
Can you believe there's only a few more days till Thanksgiving.
I lost track of time and the holiday just sneaked right up on me. 
It's one of my favorite holidays because it's the one that is hosted at my house every year. I love cooking and getting ready for my whole family to visit.

I felted I needed a special illustration for my scrapbook, smashbook, and sketchbook. Something creative that I can use for all as an embellishment in all my little memory books. Sitting down and getting ready to put all my thoughts on paper I realized something. I haven't seen a turkey in decades. (Grocery store not included)
I sat at my desk with closed eyes thinking back to my childhood. I grew up in the country and even though we didn't have turkeys our neighbors did and they were always in our yard. After a bit of reminiscing  I got to work. And I gotta say I love this new image. It's ranking up there with my favorites.

Courtney Cuddlebug Cuties

I love the bobbed haircut on this cuddlebug. Every fall I always have the urge to shorten my hair and get it bobbed. I have no idea why, but the thought crosses my mind every year. 
This year however, I'm not sure if I'm willing to give up the ability to create the mom ponytail.
