Christmas time brings a lot to be thankful for - the company of friends or family, a sense of celebration, good food... and who doesn't like a hearty meal when it's cold outside! So a photograph of bushy reeds at the Monterey seaside, looking a little like a shop display of soft, brand new feather dusters arranged to a fan, reminded me of turkey feathers, hence the choice of stamp for this card. I coloured in a free digi from Leigh's Paper Creations which is available here. For the frame I recycled part of a used Christmas card - waste not, want not...
Do you cook? Among the many ways to prepare your Christmas turkey, some can leave you with a rather dry bird... but not the Nigella recipe which involves pricking it and rubbing it in salt, then soaking it over night in orange juice flavoured with fresh parsley, cinnamon and clove. Tried and tested!
