Hangin' out with Rudy

Today was another day spent getting ready for the craft show. Once again my mom came over to help and boy, were we in a zone! We made almost 200 covered peppermint patties. And they're soooo cute! I'll show you, I promise, but it will have to wait for another day because tonight is all about Rudolph.

I know I didn't mention it here on the blog, but when I made my wreath last weekend I was super excited because when I showed it to Bill and he asked (as he alwasy does) "did you make that up?" I could finally say that yes, I did make that up. And tonight I was able to do it again with this cute little raindeer! Woo hoo!

Rudolph is made using the Stampin' Up! large and small oval punches, the 1/2" circle punch plus the oval coluzzle mat. I drew the template for the antlers by myself and the nose is a red pom-pon (thgough another red 1/2" punch would work just as well). The only ink I used was in the signo white gel pen and the basic black marker I used to draw his face. Isn't he adorable?

Of course, the best part about Rudolph is what's he's hiding. Yup, that's right, Rudolph is a chocolate bar sleeve. I just love him and I would love to see this guy in my stocking. I'm hoping that the craft fair customers will agree.
