Thanks for the memories - Digitamps4Joy Challenge #103 Mid Challenge Post

Hi all, sorry I haven't been around for awhile. I have a shoulder injury that is playing havoc with my life right now. But, you didn't come here to listen to my problems lol. It's time for the mid challenge reminder at Digistamps4Joy. Our challenge this time is being hosted by the lovely Gloria and she has chosen 'Anything Goes' as the theme. 

Recently my mom came to visit and we went to Victoria on Vancouver Island to visit with her brother and his daughter. We had such a wonderful time and we thought that it would be a nice idea to send a thank you card to my uncle for the fabulous visit and meals that he supplied for us. I have been waiting for the perfect occasion to use a very special stamp that I got a while back. For those who don't know, Margy's dear father was also a wonderful artist and drew many fabulous images in his lifetime. Margy has taken some of these images and made them into digital images. When Margy first digitized the image I am using she had a contest to name it and I won. So please let me introduce you to 'Talk About Fast Food'. 
Isn't this image just fabulous? I figured that the bird falling down totally plucked and ready for cooking would be perfect for a thank you card for someone who fed you some meals lol. Here's a closer picture of the image. 
I printed out the image and coloured it with my Prisma pencil crayons and oms. I then fussy cut it out and glued it onto the second panel in my center step card. I added a blue sky and clouds in the background and grass in front to make it look like he's in the wilderness hunting. The trees, clouds and the Thanks sentiment are a cut files from Birds Cards.
So now it's your turn to show us what you got. The challenge runs until Tuesday November 11th. You don't have to use a DS4J image, but if you do you will be put in the running to win the DT choice and the prize is a $10 Gift Certificate for use in the DS4J Store. For a list of all prizes and rules head on over to the DS4J Challenge Blog. And while you're there check out the incredible cards that my team mates have made to inspire you.
