"One can't complain. I have my friends.
Someone spoke to me only yesterday."
Don't just love gloomy ol' Eeyore? I know he is described as gray in the stories, but in my kid's old VHS movies he is blue - so ballet blue (retiring in June) is what I did here.
SU really doesn't have the right size punches for his body - so I pieced some together - but you might have better results using your circle scissors plus or (gasp!) using other punches to get it bigger.
Body - 1.75 circle plus a wide oval to make his body longer (taller - whichever word you prefer)
Neck - large oval
Mane - cross hatch or plus sign looking punch (NEW in summer mini available 5/1/10 - sold in a pack with 2 other punches)
Head - wide oval trimmed in a little on each side
Muzzle - 1 3/8 circle in apricot appeal (also retiring in June) top rounded with wide oval
Eye - small heart punch cut in half, standard hole punch
Ears - large oval cut in half (not a straight cut, kinda curvy), piece of small oval in rich razzleberry
Front leg - modern label
Back leg - large oval - trimmed in to distinguish foot
Tail - hand cut - using hole from small oval as guide
Tail hair - small heart, snipped in like grass
Bow - smallest from heart to heart and standard hole punch
Thumbtack holding tail - throwaway piece from spiral punch - trimmed the "head" down to shorten
If you are a demo you should check Belinda Johnson's StampinConnection gallery for her front facing Eeyore - she uses a round tab punch for his head. If you aren't a demo, you are out of luck seeing this - unless of course you want to join us...... email me!
