A quick card - that wobbles!

Yes I am still alive - just really lazy lately about posting  - easier to turn off the computer and go to bed than stay up and type! I have even been crafting - just not writing about it! I have also been shopping (my second favorite hobby!) and I finally picked up the Action Wobbles everyone has been raving about. Michelle on the Circle MB was a doll and sent my daughter a project with one - once I saw them in person I knew they had to be mine. (yes I am easily amused) This is a quick card I made for my godson who was having a Scooby Doo party.

And look it wobbles!

The details:

These cuts are from an oldie but goodie Everyday Paper Dolls. The doghouse was cut at 5 inches (I think - way too lazy to go get that Gypsy right now) and I welded it together to make the card. I forgot to flip the image though which resulted in a head smack moment  - fortunately the shape was pretty forgiving. The doghouse has no layers so I cut it again in black and did some hand cutting to make the layers. The dog is cut at around 3 inches with the top layer in kraft paper and the blackout layer in black. I also inked the dog to make his features stand out and added some pink chalk for the cheeks.

Then it was easy peasy to add the action wobble to the back of the dog and the front of the card. And voila -  wobbly puppy! I finished it off with a studio G stamp (ignore the crappy stamping job - just pretend it is not there). I think in the end I was probably more amused than my godson but I am okay with that. I promise to try to be more diligent about posting - and I have some cute baby stuff in store!
