I Think.......

... I must have been hit on the head with 'The Cute Stick'...........
Plain and simple is this weeks LTDO challenge and you can't get much simpler than a circle, that's what this chap is made from, just chipboard circles cut using Sizzix dies. A large circle for the head and wings, small circles for the eyes and a heart for his beak and ears.

Add a bit of florists wire for his legs and there you have him!


What about a robin?... same dies but give him a pointy hat and a length of ribbon from
The Ribbon Girl and you have a Christmas card hanger!
... not quite finished, he needs a greeting on the plaque!
Enough of the cute....... going to get my grunge head back on!... if I can find it!
