Pass the Denture Cream!

     Ok, its a vegetarian Thanksgiving joke. 
If you haven't experienced tofurky, just recall that thanksgiving when the turkey turned out dry and rubbery. Now you understand. But my sister likes it, so I had to tease her with this card. Let's see how it's made:
     I used the Ladies With Purses stamp from River City Rubber Works. Love that place's humor!  
Gertrude
Mildred
To make these funny old birds...


Stamp them three times: 
1. On white cardstock, then use colored pencils for the body parts
2. On the blue polkadot background paper, and 
3. On the floral paper. Cut out the dress/hat parts and glue them to the image on the white cardstock.  
     Cut out the finished image {anyone have family members resembling these geezers?} and adhere with pop glue dots to the card background, which I made from layering four background papers. I added photo corners for an embellishment.
     On white cardstock, draw a cartoon bubble and add your sentiment. These ladies seem to enjoy being a bit impertinent.

     
Mildred says: "Skip the tofurky and git yerself over to the buffet of fun for the party with The Wildly Original Crowd!"

Gertrude says: "Go gawk or link up a fall project! You don't even gotta stick your teeth in to do that." 

Well, I guess they are pretty sharp!

This is too funny!

I've never tried tofurky and have no desire.

I'm not a turkey fan myself, but I'll stick to the sides, thank you very much.
