punch art adventure

I will start right out with my apology and excuse for not posting in such a long time - some of you know I usually put in a lot hours at my day job in January.  This year, January wasn't so bad, but February has been killer.  As my coworkers say, that's why they pay me "the big bucks".  (hah)  It's a good thing that I love my job, but I'll be READY for my vacation next month!

I did have time to do some paper crafting and card making, just no time to share with you.  Some of the ladies in our St. Joseph County offices decided to host a scrapbook crop day as a fundraiser for Relay for Life, and I brought this cute little leprechaun as a $1 make-and-take (the dollars went to RfL, of course):
card stock - Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi, Cajun Craze, Basic Black; Stampin' Write marker - Sahara Sand; punches - listed above; Stampin' Dimensionals, Simply Scored Stylus
I think he's a cutie pie, but no one wanted to take him home with them, poor little guy.  Maybe because they couldn't see the pot of gold?  The penguins, bunnies, and lions that I learned from other demonstrators were a hit, though, and so were these little chicks:
  card stock - So Saffron, Tangerine Tango; punches - listed above; sponge daubers
Neither of these are my original designs.  I learned the chick so long ago that I've completely lost track of the original, but I'm sure it didn't use the Snowflake punch - I thought that up all by myself.  I'm not so clever that I wouldn't think someone else hasn't thought of it, though.  The leprechaun is a combination of different ideas I've seen other people use.
