Happy Thanksgiving Turkey Shaker Card





Hello all my fabulous crafty friends, I hope you all are having great weekend.. Well, my weekend started out a little rocky my son came down with a 24 hour bug.. So, we spent the yesterday snuggling and lounging around.. He is back to his normal silly self today thank goodness.. I just hate when my kiddos get sick, because I feel so helpless.. I just want to make them feel all better and I can't..

Okay enough chit chatting, I created a super cute turkey card and wanted to share it with all of you.. The clear plastic circle I used to create my shaker was cut from a plastic insert that can in a candle gift set my sweet hubby bought me.. Of course I love my candles but as soon as I saw the the plastic insert I got visions of shaker cards dancing in my head,LOL..
