Cute and Cuddly


This cute little dachshund image was cut from a magazine quite a while ago. I loved the sweet expression on it's face, so I cut it out and had it hanging by my craft table just for fun. I fussy cut the photo, layering it on some Lawn Fawn polka dot paper, cutting it at an angle to accommodate the "love" sentiment by Technique Tuesday. I added a stitched heart from Lil Inker in coordinating tiny heart patterns from the same Lawn Fawn paper pad, and stamped some dog bones and colored them with markers.

I'm sharing this over at the Cards in Envy "Cute and Cuddly" challenge, as well as the Snippets playground #191 challenge.

I hope you're inspired to smile today too! Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, you have made so well to save this image from the bin!! This doggie is too cute, and his (or hers?) eyes really speack!! They just say "love me, please! And give me a biscuit..." as you have well understood! :D Very lovely card, Carol, and the dp and the sentiment matches so well with the image!!

Oh this is soooooo cute Carol. You'll miss looking at that dear little dog's face when your card goes. I love the way you've coloured the bones. They look so real that they look like photos. Barbxx

Oh gosh Carol - who wouldn't adore that appealing little face :) Great card and I love the fact that you saved the lovely image and eventually made this brilliant snippets card. Love the 'Bonios' too :)

Caught this one at the Snippets Playground, having missed it scrolling the blog. Now this is one cute little fella, and good idea to hang him where he can brighten your day. Then to think to fussy cut him again, to decorate a cute card. You are just too clever! WTGo. TFS & Happy wkend. Hugs
