Puppy Dogs Tails

.........and I always thought it was 'slugs and snails' ;) lol

This is another one of my most favourite Mo Manning images - Toby is 2.  There is something a little comical about tiny tantrums after the event, and this image just makes me smile.  Dont you just want to give him a cuddle? lol.

I made this card following the great sketch on Sketch Saturday, it was a breeze and I loved it. :)  I distressed and hand-stitched HOTP papers, and just matted and layered with Bazill cardstock and added a few card-candy dots, flourish die and MS punched borders.  The sentiment was from an old K&Co QVC kit.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Thanks so much for looking and leaving comments - it makes my day reading them.  Good luck to everyone in these challenges, and have a great day,

I love this image Alison and you've made yet another fabulous card! Love the way his feet are popping out of the frame like you couldn't control him, lol!! Tantrums are sooo funny afterwards but not at the time - especially when you're in a public place! xx

Olga said...

Mrs.B said...

Maybe its 'snips' if you're 'POOSH' - but its always been slugs for me!
Great card Allison, love the way you have cut the image with his feet sticking out!
Hope you use a thimble cause there's lots of beautiful neat stitching - I'd need a machine!

Hi Alison. Have your rhyme stuck in my head now, definitely think it is slugs and snails. Gorgeous card. Love the cute image, brings back memories of the terrible twos. Although don't think it ends there as they go through that many different stages. Great layout and love the colours and details. Donna
