Seamus - Lucky Punch Art

Hey there, Peeps!  Happy Friday Eve!

     Man, oh MAN am I ever ready for a weekend.  I'm especially ready for my hubby to come home from his business trip.  We sure do miss him.

I had an idea last night for a new punch art pal and I can't wait to share him with you.  His name is "Seamus"  (that's pronounced "Shay-muss" for all you non Irish peeps like me) LOL  I bought some gold, chocolate coins last week thinking that I'd make something with them....I had no clue what that would be.  Do you do that?  Man, I'm a sucker for cute odds and ends that I see lots of crafty possibilities for. 
So....here's Seamus and how I used one of the chocolate coins....

Isn't he just the jolliest little guy? I can't stop smiling when I look at him.  Now for a list of the punches and supplies I used just in case you'd like to create a Seamus of your own.
