Thankful Blog Hop

Today I join the fabulous Peachy Keen design team and alumni on a blog hop.  We are celebrating all that we are thankful for!  Not only am I thankful for my family and friends, but I'm also thankful to be sharing my creations with all of you.  I'm thankful for all of my dedicated readers that visit often and especially all of you that leave so many wonderful comments.  It's been a tough year for me.  Moving and working extra long hours at my full time job hasn't left we with nearly enough time this year.  I haven't had time to create many new punch art classes for you all to enjoy.  I plan on making the new year a whole lot more productive!

If you came here from Saundra wonderful blog, then you are on the right track.  If you are just starting the hop here, you definitely want to start at the beginning.

Peachy Keen is generously giving away three $50 gift certificates!  They will be randomly drawing from the comments on several of the participating blogs.  We don't know yet which blogs that will be, so you will definitely want to visit all the stops and comment at each one to increase your chances!

I dug out my punches and nestabilities along with one of my favorite Peachy Keen face sets called PK-482 Winter Wonderland Face Assortment.  If you don't have this set yet, you should definitely add it to your collection!  The sweet little bird, snowman and kid faces in this set will melt your heart.  Look at those lashes!


Sorry I didn't have time to create a step by step tutorial for you this time.  I'm working 70 hour work weeks for the next 3 weeks and barely have enough time to eat and sleep!   For the body, I used  my Nestabilities dies to cut 4 different size scallop circles.  I rolled each into a cone and stacked them like a tree to create the body.  Cut the top of the tree off so you can tuck the head into the top.  I used the Blossom Petals Builder punch for the wings and head.  For the feet I used Boho Blossoms.  For the tail, I cut 3 large scallop circle nestabilities and layered the pieces.  Cut the sides off to create tail.  Cut a slit in back of body and tuck tail into slit. Hand cut a waddle for his face and stamp and pop the beak on top of it.

The next stop is at the wonderfully creative blog of
