Hey Little Turkeys!!
I'm very, very thankful for every one of you that take time out of your day to stop by here to see me.
If I could have made a little peppermint patty turkey for each one of you, I happily would have!!
I CASE'd this design from the lovely and talented LeAnne Pugliese, and made a few mods.
My tail is inked with More Mustard, and then I colored parts with a Chocolate Chip and Only Orange Marker. His little noggin is More Mustard (1") as well, with a Cajun Craze topknot - I just cut a little strip into fringe and scrunched it. I gave him two different sized googlie eyes to make him look sort of crazy and desperate, since, well, it's not a good day for turkeys.
His beak is Pumpkin Pie (get it - Pumpkin Pie??), and his body is made of two 1 3/4" circles with the bottoms cut off. A Pearson Peppermint Patty is sandwiched in between them, and then you stick his tail on the back. I dotted his body with a white gel pen.
Then I brought him to Starbucks to give to sweet Holly at the window who handed me my Thanksgiving beverage. She squealed. :)
Thank you for reading this and for keeping my little turkey company.
