Happy Thanksgiving Charger

It's another wonderful weekend coming up.  I hope everyone gets to do a little something crafty!  I am sharing with you today our latest die cut challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches.  The challenge was to use something related to "Thanksgiving Table."  I have to say this was a tough one for me.  I had no Thanksgiving pictures showing food, and didn't really need a Thanksgiving card, and just couldn't think of what to do for this challenge.  Then I remembered doing my Christmas charger last year.  See this post for a peek at it, in case you missed it last year.  I decided I'd love to have one for Thanksgiving.  Once I figured out what to do, I had fun!  Here are the details:

Charger:  Purchased at AC Moore  (It already had the crackled look.)
Circle in Center of Plate:  George Cricut cartridge cut at 8"
Cornucopia:  Celebrate with Flourish Cricut Lite cartridge cut at 4" -- I then did a little embossing with my Cuttlebug on some of the pieces.
Leaves:  Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridge cut at 2 1/4" -- I chalked the edges and used a stylus and foam pad to give them some definition.
Acorns:  Create a Critter cartridge cut at 1 1/4"
Happy Thanksgiving:  Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake cartridge cut at 3" (I think)
Vine at bottom:  Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake cartridge cut at 2 3/4" (I think)
Turkey:  Celebrate with Flourish Cricut Lite cartridge cut at 2 1/2"

Come on -- join us for this cool challenge.  What will you come up with?  You can find the challenge and other designers' creations here.

Thanks for looking, and be inspired!

Fantastic! I could not think of one single thing to do on this one. And was feeling a bit stressed this week, so opted out! This is wonderful! I actually bought a charger the other night to decorate for a Christmas layout, so this really perked my ears up! Love it!
