Hello everyone..........  It has been such a very long time since I have posted on my blog!!!   Life is starting to get a bit better here for me at our house and I am now able to work with my hands a bit better.  So I have a project to share with you today. YAY!!!  I hope you like it as it is not a card,  but it is a fun Christmas ornament that I have made using a 4 inch paint brush. 

I have used acrylic paints to paint the handle and the eyes and cheeks on. The wooden nose has also been painted flesh tone. I have stripped some muslin fabric to make a stash. Use a 6x10 piece of fabric to make the hat and added the feather strip using hot glue. I have added a jingle bell with a jute bow to the tip of the hat. I used very heavy gauge black wire for the cute glasses. I wrapped the wire around a dowel stick to make them. I have use hot glue to put it all together and added a wire to the top of the paintbrush though the fabric for a hanger.

Now just how cute is that!?!?!?!

I do hope to post on here from time to time. 
I miss all of my blog friends
I want to wish everyone a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and a WONDERFUL New Year!!
