Penguin Candy Cane Holder

A quick post tonight as I am about to fall asleep - been a big day here in Creative Craft Fusion Land.

This is a really cute punch art penguin that I cased from Kim and her gorgeous website.

I bought some candy canes - Yes , I am one of "those" crazy people that as soon as Christmas explodes at the shops, I am one of the first to check it out. Did I mention that i LOVE LOVE Christmas . I am really looking forward to this Christmas as it will be the first one spent with our beautiful daughter - Santa will have his work cut out for him this year!!!
I have been wanting to some how decorate those candy canes and have seen a few ideas on the Internet. But I wanted something a little cuter - why not have a penguin holding the cane. Here is what I came up with. I don't know if the photo does it justice, but he has little penguin arms that sit above the cane.
Let me know what you think!!



PUNCHES: ornament; butterfly; heart-to-hear; 1/2" circle; slit; tear drop punch (non SU)

PAPER: riding hood red; basic black; whisper white; pink pirouette; pumpkin pie

OTHER: oval die

Hi! Just found your blog yesterday, very nice! Found this cute penguin today....adorable! Wondering if you might give a little explanation on how you created the body......it is a bit difficult to see in the pic since it is all black.

Thanks!
Cindy
