A Poppy Troll Punch Art Project!

My granddaughter Kaitlynn needed a birthday card for a friend of hers that was having a birthday party. So my daughter Jessica sent me a photo of one she found on Pinterest. I never need an excuse to stamp of course, but when someone asks, of course I say yes! So I used the sample photo Jess sent me, along with another photo of a cartoon figure. This is what I came up with:

But, do you want to hear a funny ending to this project? Once I was finished, photographed my card and a few days later decided to blog about it (today).....I had no clue what I was blogging about and to what I had just created. I had to call my daughter to ask her what this character was.  I guess I've been out of the loop lately because this is Poppy Troll. Do you know Poppy Troll or have you ever heard of Poppy Troll?

Poppy Troll was born with punches, some current and some retired, along with the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and some hand-cutting of my own. It would be too hard for me to describe everything that I did on this card. I cut, I trimmed, I added this and added that but what I can tell you is that I had a blast creating this card!

Isn't Poppy Troll a little cutie? I have not created a "Punch Art" project in so long so this was fun!

I leave you today with some very exciting news...

Kaitlynn has been asking for a brother or sister for a very long time, a few years now.  She's nine and an only child and my only grandchild. She actually wanted one of each! I am proud to say I am going to be a Grammy again. I just know Kaitlynn will be the best big sister as she loves babies!
