Cute Card Thursday GD card Snips, Snails and Puppy Dog Tails :-)

First of all Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends on the other side of the pond :-)

This is my 2nd and final week as GD on the Cute Card Thursday Challenge :-) I have had a lovely time and would like to thank the DT for making me so welcome and having me join them :-)
This week is a fabulous theme 'Snips Snails and Puppy Dog Tails :-) Or to make it a bit easier ,,, a card for a boy ! :-) Loads of scope there :-) I am sure the DT will have made some fabulous cards for your inspiration,, I can't wait to see what they did !! :-)
Jo, my Simon Says teamie,sent me a stamped image of this ages ago ,,, which I used and loved it so I just HAD to buy this fab Froggie Gift High Hopes stamp for this challenge :-) I bought this from the lovely Nikki at Bunny Zoe Crafts,,,:-) As it has puppy dog tails in the title ,, I als HAD to buy this little cutie from Funky Kits ! This challenge has cost me a fortune !! lol :-)

I coloured the image with copics, dirtied him a little with brown chalk ,, didn't like him clean !! I 3D'd the little dog ,, I did mask him actually but you can't tell so I really don't knoiw why I bothered !! lol :-) The papers are from My Minds Eye, I also used some Brown/Green coredinations. The charm is also from Bunny Zoe Crafts, the buttons are from Sean's old skool jacket and the string was in a drawer ,,,I dirtied that with antique linen ink. The sentiment is another Punchem from Funky Fairys Papercrafts,,, if you haven't bought these yet you should ,, they re fab ! :-)

I am also entering this card into the Die cut Dreams Challenge whose theme is 'Puppy Love' :-)

Heidi tells me that they will be selling the High Hopes stamps in the Simon Says Stamp Store,,hopefully from tomorrow ,, so keep an eye out for them there :-)
I have a blog candy sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, it is at the top of my blog if you would like to take a peek :-)
Thanks for looking :-) Pop over to the Cute Card Thurdsday Challenge to see what the DT have made and hope you all join us in the challenge :-)
