Glamorous Goat

Nancy Dawson, who has known me for a while from a scrapbooking yahoo group, just found my blog while on a search for a punch art goat.  Well, of course, I had to help a fellow scrapbooker...

This has a 'mountain goat' feel - but I think separating the legs and shortening the horns will make him a 'normal' goat if that is what you need.  But, what do I know?    My goat experience is limited to reading Three Billy Goats Gruff and the local petting zoos and as my baby is driving - both of those experiences were YEARS ago.

You might have noticed that Eileen, glitter guru, glammed the goat.

You can probably see most of it and I feel like I am constantly repeating the same stuff when I give punch lists - so here is just the critical info:

head is half a butterfly, 
all facial hair is from the scallop oval repunched with ovals.
body is 1.75 circle with two cuts - one to flatten his back and a diagonal cut near his neck,
feet are modern label trimmed to just two 'bumps'

Hope that helps you out Nancy.  Come back anytime!

Reminds me of The Sound of Music, the puppet scene, I might start Yoddling!

Carrie, could we have a couple verses of Edelweiss instead? (grin)

Nancy Dawson said...

Thank you so much, Ellen. I will make one and let you see! You are my hero. Thx again. Nancy

OMG! That is hilarious! She does look like the puppet on the Sound of Music! I vote for the yodeling.
