So here is Rudolph number 1:
Constructed with the owl punch, I started with the main body of the owl and chopped his feet off (poor owl!). I used two of the circles to make the eyes, instead of the usual three, and used the third and largest circle to make a nose. Clearly he's been polishing it because it has a shine! The antlers were made with the branches from the Bird Builder punch. I like the white embossed background on this card, but I couldn't resist using this paper for Rudolph number 2:
It's like a whole sheet full of Rudolph noses! This paper, and the die cut circle paper, are from Everyday Enchantment which you can only get until 31st July! The antlers on this one were made by three rows of owl feet stuck together (poor owl again!).
As for the card design, I followed this week's sketch at Retrosketches as it's been a few weeks since I've made time to join in the fun :) And as all the Rudolphs were made with snippets, I can play in the playground... head over to Headteacher Di's to check out what everyone else has been up to!
So which do you think looks more like antlers? Leaves or owl feet?

I was tickled by how tidy you think I am at my desk... I craft in my kitchen/dining room so I can't shut the door on the mess and pretend it's not there. Plus I have to work at my desk as well and I'm not sure how much I'd get done if I left out papers to stroke! And, oh yes, I did warn you I am a neat freak.
Another literary-based feline today, but not as high-brow as To Kill A Mockingbird! Enjoy!
Thanks as always for stopping by. I am chuffed to bits that you spend part of your busy day with me!
