My Sweet Baboo

Y'all must have figured out how this works by now - one punch project leads to an idea for another...

After the little girl dragged her blanket yesterday, how could I not punch Linus hugging his for today?

Head  - 1.75 circle - blush blossom trimmed on the left side with scissors
Ear - word window - blush blossom
Neck - word window - blush blossom
Body - 1.75 circle - red stamped with Solid Stripes in basic gray - piece of 1.75 circle in black for shorts (you can just barely see this between his shoes)
Shoes - 3/4 inch circle  - close to cocoa, trimmed straight on each side - pen markings on sole and sponging
Arms - small oval - blush blossom re-punched with 1 inch circle to shorten
Hands - scallop oval repunched with 1/2 inch circle - blush blossom - slot punch thumb added
Eyes and nose from standard hole punch
Hair - photo corner - offset and repunched over and over to get thin strips with the bend in them
Blanket - free hand - I drew it first with pencil then cut it out.

Add Sally to this, have her talking about her 'sweet baboo' and you have a valentine card!

Jill Shover has done several peanuts characters (including Sally) that you should go look at.  Her Linus is different than mine. Make sure you scroll down to see them all. Her Lucy is fabulous!

You are so talented! Do you take requests!?!? How about a Snoopy - nobody does punches like you do!

Could he be any more perfect? Or cuter? I think not. Awesome job on him, Clem.
