We're getting ready for Thanksgiving this weekend as my son has to return go back offshore Wednesday morning and he's responsible for frying the turkeys! Poor guy... with his 7 on, 7 off schedule, it seems he manages to miss most of the holidays so his family has learned to adapt by celebrating whenever he's home rather than on the actual holidays.
I don't eat much in the way of fried foods but I LOVE me some deep fried turkey!! I have no idea who discovered that method of cooking the big birds but if I could meet him or her, they'd get a big hug from me! It's a southern delicacy (even though Texas isn't considered a southern state) and if you have never tried it, you don't know what you're missing. I even saw Deep Fried Turkey Breast by Butterball in the deli at Walmart the other day. It's not quite as good as home cooked but I tried it and it's the next best thing. The only problem with it is that when you put it on a sandwich with mustard and mayo, lettuce and tomato, you lose some of the delicate flavor that differentiates it from the regular roasted variety.
Anyway, enough about turkey. Today, I have a card for you that I made with one of my favorite Saturated Canary images, Butterfly Princess. I just love coloring her hair and her gown. I have colored her 3 different ways but this is the first time I have actually made a card with her.
So now that my secret is divulged, I hope you'll give this technique a try. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. That's all for today. Again, if you're in the U.S., have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and if not, have a great week! I'll be back Tuesday with a Kenny K card for the new challenge at Tip Top Tuesday. Kenny is sponsoring the challenge and therefore the prize will probably be some free digis for the lucky winner!
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Until next time...
