January 19th--Valentine's Cuts

  I love Valentine's Day!  I love the color combinations hot pink, light pink,black and purple together!!  Let's not forget the candy! I love the sugar coated cinnamon hearts, I have already bought a bag and eaten half of it!!
Today's project I used the Sweethearts Cricut Cartridge.  I saw the little dog cut with the heart over the eye and new I just had to use it!  I wanted to make some treat bags for my son's class and thought this cut would be great for it!  I cut the puppy's out at 3 1/2".  I struggled to find in my stash of cardstock some printed paper that looked like fur! (note to self look for paper that looks like fur the next time you are at a craft store!!)  I also used some fibers and ribbon to make collars for the puppies and some google eyes.

                          Sorry the lighting in my house is horrible for pictures especially at night!
I then decided I wanted to try making my own wobble card. I made the wobble by using my circle punch and some wire and tape.
Next I attached it to one of my pups and covered a card with some striped paper.  Added a sentiment from Stampin Up! 
                                                     Sorry for the bad lighting and picture!

The video on how to make your own wobbles is on youtube.  It took a few tries but I think it looks pretty cute!
