Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Our challenge hostess for July, Karen Aicken continues to bring us the challenges.

For our challenge this week, Karen has given us the theme .... CRITTERS - Put one or more critters on your card or project.

I recently purchased this Puppies Stamp/Die set from Stampendous and decided to use that for my card this week. This dog looks so like my little dog, Buttons, although as he is now over 18 years old he does look slightly older and he sleeps most of the time.

Of course I love pop up cards so I decided to use the Lots of Pops Pop Up Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs for the base of my card. 

The dogs head and body come in separate pieces so I attached them using an action wobble so when the card has any movement the dog's head wobbles.

Here is a quick video showing how the dog's head wobbles on my card.

Along the top and bottom of my card, I added another layer of designer paper which is edged using the rolling hills border from the Outdoor Edges die set. The sentiment is layered using the label from the Lorna Labels Pop Up Card die set.

Here is another view of my card so you can see the pop up portion of my card a little easier.

And finally the front of the card. This time round I used the dog's head and paws so it looks like it is peeking out from behind something. I have used another action wobble to the head, so this one will also wobble. I also used the speech bubble from the Rectangle Accordion Card die set for the sentiment.
