Creative Challenge #2: Creative Scallops

Today's Creative Clear Stamps Challenge this week is all about Creative Scallops!   Remember when everyone was using the slit punch to create scallops by taking the bracket off the bottom and lining it up? :o) Let me tell you....I enjoy the convenience of scallop punches, absolutely no guess work!

For this card, I used the stamp set
Turkey Day and stamped the turkey twice and popped up the body of this little turkey on dimensionals.   I am trying to make more of a concerted effort to do the inside of my cards....so here she goes... :o)

Sorry for the slight glare on this one...  For the inside, I used the turkey track stamp from Gone Hunting, it just went so well with this turkey.  If you get a chance, we would love for you to join in our challenge at Creative Clear Stamps, you can find all of the details HERE.

My parents and brother are coming for a visit today before my brother deploys back to Afghanistan. Sure are thankful for our military and their sacrifice for our freedoms....

Have a wonderful day!
Blessings,
