WOYWW 233 - The not-so-quite Angry Bird

Just in case WOYWW is unfamiliar to you, jump over to here to get a better understanding!

Anyhow, here is something cute I finished up from a colored turkey my 8 (and a half, as he reminds me) -year old son made.  I call it the 'not-so-quite Angry Bird' because at first he used watercolor pencils to color in the stamped turkey image and later that evening he had to stay home with his mom while I and his older brother went out - this is where the angry part starts.  See, he was complaining that his stomach hurt but suddenly felt better when he heard that his brother and I were going out.  Well we left during a tantrum he started to throw (which, according to my wife lasted almost half an hour....and, his stomach did NOT feel any better).  When I got home, he was sound asleep and I noticed he cut up his turkey image during a little fit of rage, apparently.  However, he did leave a little post-it note next to it that stated 'I'm Sorry'.  So, my heart melted and I decided to patch up the so-called Angry Bird and layer him on some patterns cut in our Cricut.  This will always have a special meaning for us as we look at the silly smile on the Turkey's face knowing he could never really be an angry bird!
