In the beginning...

In the beginning...

No, not THAT beginning.  In the beginning days of this blog, I shared the tutorial for a punched crow that had been very popular - which you can find HERE.

Today I have another crow inspired by some clip-art I saw - it was just too fun not to try in punches.

Beak - large oval, opening trimmed with scissors and colored in a bit with black marker
Body - large oval - snipped in with scissors to make choppyish (is that a word?) feathers
Eyes - circle from itty bitty punch pack and black marker
Glasses - 1/2 inch circle around itty bitty punch pack circle hole - 3 times - 2 for circles, 1 for nose piece - 2 bits of word window for ear pieces
Legs - thin strip from trimmer
Feet - narrow heart to heart next to the same hole - then I folded it over on itself to make the toes closer together (making the V shape narrower - just try it and it should make sense)

I will be using this for a thank you card I need to make - maybe something like "just had to crow about it"
Any better suggestions for a sentiment?

I am so happy to see you back! Wanted to wish you a Happy New Year! :<)

Love the crow! It is such fun to go back over the beginning postings and remember the creations and yet sad that one can't see them all at once! :<) You are so creative and amazing!

Wishing you a great year in 2011 and hope that it is a happy one for you!
