I Tawt I Taw a Tweety Pie!

So punch fans, this is one I have wanted to make for a long time - I am surprised it has not been requested.  And this is as close to an Easter chick as I'm coming. 
I decided the correct label for my malady is not Springtime Scrooge.  I'm ready for spring weather (and Spring Break!)  I'm just not "hopping down the bunny trail" this year, so using the correct terminology - my title would be: Ellen, Easter Ebeneezer.

Here is the 'how to' photo and punch info for this little tweety pie:
Head - 1.75 circle
Body & Tail - large oval trimmed as shown in photo - save trimmed out part as tail
Arms - oval ring from large oval punched around small oval hole
Cheeks - small oval snipped in a little (snip isn't shown in the above photo - look at the card)
Beak - tip of small oval
White of eye - word window
blue of eye - part of small heart to heart - see photo for part to cut off
feet - full heart - trim out "pie" shape as shown in photo

Go around the edges of each piece with a black marker.  Draw on eye blacks, eyelashes, eyebrows and toe line.

Spring Break is upon us here in North Texas, so this coming week my posts may be spotty - College girl will be home at least part of the week and hubby gets home from Paris today so I may not have much desk time.

Doesn't it look like Tweety is hiding something behind his back?  Whistling nonchalantly, hoping you won't notice?

Yes, I had to spell check nonchalantly.  I'm pretty sure that is the first time I have ever typed that word.

I'll post when I can.  Have a great weekend!
