Weekend Stamping

I have two different cards to share. The first one is Shopping Chic :-) I went off to my local stamp store yesterday to pick up one brown marker to color my Turkey's with. So what happened more than $30 later? Well I found these two great stamps to start. They are both by Stampendous. The shopping chic is from the Fashion Friendzy line, I need to see what else they have in that line. The quote is from Purse-nally Yours. I actually had to stop myself on getting more purse stamps. I love purses, must have over 100! :) I remembered I had one purse stamp at home so for now that was good but HAD to have this quote! I also HAD to get 2 other markers, 2 stickles and another stamp. I think that's it, I don't even remember. My background stamp on Shopping Chic is French Script from Stampin Up.

This second creation is the Turkey set from Missy B Designs. This is the Turkey I wanted to get a brown marker for to color. For some reason nothing seemed to be working. So what happened with my new brown marker? NOTHING, I got the wrong color! Yes I know you are thinking how did that happened. I don't know. The cap looked like a nice brownish color and I thought I had tested it. Well, let me tell you I don't think I tested it and I didn't look at the color name which is Burnt Umber. Definitely does not sound like a Turkey color now does it? So in the end I didn't even get what I went for! I decided to stamp the turkey on light brown paper instead. I didn't really like it but decided to just go with it and see what happens. SO this is how it turned out. I added Ranger stickles which I thought turned out great. The background paper is from Cosmo Cricket. What do you think?

Great idea on the turkey - love the sparkle on him. And I'm the same way when I go to the store - always end up with more than I had planned.
