The Cuttlebug Spot - Gobble, Gobble, Gobble!

There's a brand new challenge starting over at the Cuttlebug Spot today...where our theme (in honour of Thanksgiving in the US later this month) is:

'Gobble, Gobble, Gobble'
That's right...we want you to show us your turkeys!

Now...I will admit that I was totally stumped by this one...being British, and not having any stamps of turkeys...I have quite a few of chickens...and was temped to try and dress one of those up as a turkey...but after a quick Google, I stumbled across this tutorial on Jenna's blog for making a turkey using punches and dies...here's the result:


I used a mixture of plain and scalloped circle Nesties for the head, body and tail...adding freehand cut pieces for his beak, waddle and feet...and used a small single hole punch to make his eyea and eyelids. Once I'd layered up his tail,  I folded part of it back, so that he could stand up. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with him...but he's quite sweet! lol


I'm also entering this into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Cuttlebug Spot Challenge.
