So why do turkeys look so happy, anyway? It’s Thanksgiving eve and this guy looks happy to me….little does he know what awaits him…. so sad…..but anyway, isn’t he cute? I kind of drew a big fat blank when the challenge was “punch art” – I have never been one to come up with all that cute stuff made out of punches….and if anything my comfort zone would take me to a wreath of some kind…..but I sent my small flower punch to NY for the next Backwards Workshop with my NY/NJ customers…..hmmm…….things that make ya go hmmmmm……….I already used the owl punch on this challenge blog so didn’t want to do a repeat….and my sweet daughter in law Jenna happened to hear me lamenting over wanting a cool idea for punch art and she said she had been playing with the Scallop Circle punch with my grand daughter Layla, and she came up with a pretty cute turkey, all on her own. I adjusted it just a little, to make it my own, but here it is, a pretty cute little guy. This fence was also her idea….it’s made from the Pinking Hearts Border punch…..and then the pumpkins from smallest Oval punch – I’ve just seen them around. I also used the Scallop Border punch for the grass, and a simple circle punch for the moon. The entire turkey is made from the Scallop Circle punch…so cool!! Most of the wings are made from pieces of it – you cut the scallop circle in half and then cut the scallops out individually and layer them. Isn’t he cute? Jenna to the rescue!! Thanks Jenna!! But the poor turkey, his name is William. Don’t you feel really sorry for him? Ignorance is bliss. If he knew what his future held he would not look so happy. He would be saying in a loud voice, “Give me ONE MORE NIGHT!!” Anyway, when we see him again he’ll be keeping company with stuffing, sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce. So sad……… Such is life…………. Until next time………..
