Critter Challenge at The Kraft Journal

This week at The Kraft Journal, our challenge theme is "Critters".  To be perfectly honest, I struggled a bit with this project.  I wanted to make a turkey (for Thanksgiving), but I ended up with what I'm calling a "Churkey".  That's a chicken and a turkey combined (LOL).  I used some great Kraft Outlet products including some red and Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock to create the fans.  I cut the Cardstock into strips; and then using my Bone Folder Tool, I scored lines into them and then folded the cardstock pieces to create the fans.  I hot glued  everything together (including the chicken head).  I added a Tim Holtz Journalling Ticket (Live) that is held with a Tim Holtz Memo Pin.  I really hope you will join us by creating a special project for this week's Critter Challenge.  Why not treat yourself to some great new Kraft Outlet goodies, and then linking up with us.  You could be the lucky winner of the $15 Kraft Outlet Gift Certificate.
So, this is my "Churkey", and however pitiful it may be....at least I was creative, right?  I really hope you'll stop by to play along in this week's Critter Challenge at The Kraft Journal, as well as our Anything Goes Challenge at Word Art Wednesday.  We're always grateful to have you share with us in our challenges.

I'm sharing my "Churkey" in the following:
