Start Each Day with a Waggy Tail!

Happy Monday all!

I promised someone last week that the thing I was in the middle of making at that time, would cause a smile.  And I hope that these two handmade cards do that very thing.

Can you imagine receiving a card, out of the blue,  for your Birthday;  to cheer you up;  or just to say ‘hello’,  opening it and finding this funny little dog inside…

That little chap looks like he’s kicking up the grass after he’s had a tinkle, doesn’t he?  LOL!

Camera at a slightly different angle so that you can see this really is a card.

I took the next photo to give you a side view, so that you could get a true idea of how much the back-end of this little chap stands proud of the card…

And then . . .   well . . .  I just had to make a taller, shaggy coated white dog – which I based upon a ‘Dulux Dog’ – or – an ‘Old English Sheepdog’,  as they’re actually called. . .

. . . and from a slightly different angle . . .

The photographs sadly don’t really show the detail of the coats – the ‘shaggyness’ which I’ve sculpted in.  The bodies look far more ‘hairy’ looking in real life – to the natural eye.

Another photo to show the depth of the clay dog.

And finally . . . a paws for thought . . .  

Brown And White WaggyTail 1

. . .  I forgot to take a shot of their feet, so dashed back to the craft room to take an extra photo. The photograph above shows the pinky feet of the white dog, and you can just about see that the brown woofer has pinky brown feet.  But what the photo doesn’t pick up is that each paw has individual pads – just as a real dog does.  In this case, each pad has one large central pad, and three little smaller pads around the front of the paw.

I think if I were sent one of these cards, for whatever reason, after displaying it as a card should be displayed,  I’d frame it afterwards and hang it on the wall.  It’s way too much fun to go into a drawer!

Now I’m very aware that not everyone is a dog person, so I gave some thought to what Cat people might enjoy . . .  and [whispering]. . .   “shhhh  . . .  something is in the pipeline for those people who love cats!  Coming  very,  very  soon!

Thank you so much for coming for a visit, and for sharing a coffee moment with me.  I hope you found a smile or two looking at the Waggy Tails! 

It’s really lovely to see you, and even more lovely to ‘hear’ your comments and chat, so  please,  do let me know you’ve visited. 

Have a truly blessed rest of your day, my lovely blogging friends!

Author: The Art of Cobwebs - aka:- thecobweboriumemporium

Hello. I'm 'Cobwebs'. I live in a wee little cottage in the South of England, aptly called Cobweb Cottage. This little dwelling really is a cobweb factory. Not inside (well, occasionally) - but outside - flipping heck! This information should give you a clue as to why my blog is called The Art of Cobwebs aka: The Cobweborium Emporium. I've been arty and crafty from a very young age, and although my crafts have sometimes turned a corner and taken me in another direction, I've always crafted in some way, shape or form. One day, in the blink of an eye, life changed somewhat for me and the consequences were many. I had to find a new way of being 'artistic'. Card making; scrap-booking; producing ATC's and ACEO's; needle felting; Polymer clay; painting- but in a more relaxed style than I had before, and sewing, - are all things which I visit, as and when life allows. I've fairy recently become a Textile Artist and am enjoying this new creative outlet very much as it offers me so much scope for letting my imagination run through a grassy field and feel the wind in my hair - (mentally, of course). I love to create. To make things. I truthfully believe that the best gifts in the world are those in which you've given your time, rather than your cash. Thank you so much for visiting. Please visit my blog (link below) and have a look around. I'm sure you'll find something to enjoy, even if it's only a handful of jokes! (yes, seriously - there really are jokes!) Wishing you a truly blessed rest of your day! ~ Cobs. <3

    1. Awww, hello Beautiful Beverly. So glad you like them.

      And that’s why I’m sending oooodles of love and a lorry load of squidges
      Thanks for coming Bev LOVE to see you. ~ Cobs. xxx


    1. Hello ‘P’ 😀
      Thrilled you like them. Thank you so much for coming for a visit.
      Is the new little man home now? I’ve been thinking about him and wondering, as you do.

      1. Little man is home but he is very yellow (it’s more pronounced than the last time I saw him) Mummy is seeing the health visitor tomorrow to see if he needs to go back to hospital to undergo light therapy, other than that he’s feeding well & often 🙂

        1. Daughter No.1 was quite jaundiced when born, and they told me, in the hospital, to position her, in her fish tank crib, by the window. It was during the summer, so the sky was bright. (Not in direct sunlight- I didn’t want to bake her for lunch. lol). But … it actually helped, and it ended up that she didn’t need to go for the light machine.

          So you might want to tell D.I.L to pop him, in his crib (or whatever he’s currently sleeping in), by the window, where the natural light can help with the jaundice.

          Poor little chap isn’t having the greatest of starts. Keeping him in my prayers, ‘P’.
          Sending love ~ Cobs. xxx


          1. I’m visiting D.I.L tomorrow I’ll pass on your excellent advice, while he may not be having the greatest of starts he sure is proving what a fighting spirit he has 🙂

  1. Hahah, these are brilliant! Shame you the whole ‘smellavision’ and ‘touchavision’ hasn’t been invented so we could get a ‘real’ view of the cards. They look brilliant, and definitely would cheer me up if I received one – amazing! Looking forward to seeing the kittycat version 🙂

    1. Hello Caz 😀
      Great to see you!
      Aw I’m so happy that you like the cards. You’re right … a touchavision would have been great for these. Not sure about the smell one …. I’ve just sniiiiiiffed them and can’t smell anything. But … if there were smellavision …. maybe I could give them a certain aroma. LOL.

      The cat version is well on it’s way. Kitty Cat version will put in an appearance soon on/in a Blog post.

      Thank you for coming Caz, and for the fabulous comment.

      1. If you could make them those scratch-and-sniff cards that would be amazing – no idea what you’d have them smell of given the theme, though a wet dog smell is pretty distinctive! The loving detail you’ve put into these, like with the paw pads, is incredible. x

    1. Hello lovely Anne. 😀
      Do you know … When I see your name pop up here, in comments, I always, without fail, get this kinda tickly feel, right in the middle, inside my body. It’s like a giggle is trapped inside a bottle and it’s wriggling about to make the cork pop. LOL. It’s a truly lovely feeling, and it makes a visual appearance with a big grin on my face. 😀

      Tickled pink that you like the card, and that you like both dogs and cats. All the best people do! 😉

      Thank you so much for visiting Anne, and for the lovely comment.

  2. Cobs! You enchant me so! How could I possibly help myself from falling to the floor giggling, spirits soaring if I received a card with one of those sweet, shiny, little “hineys” and her pink toes greeting me?!?!? I’d love to see the magic in your head!

    1. Hello Landrybaby.
      Cooooo….. I don’t think I’ve ever enchanted anyone before… but I like the thought! 😀

      Thrilled to hear that you like the cards.
      As for the magic in my head … all that’s insid there is, I fear, one little brain cell, making its own entertainment. LOL.

      Thank you for coming and for the lovely comment.
      I can’t click to find your own blog from the link you provided. But I’d love to come and visit. Perhaps you could COPY the address from the address bar across the top of the page of your home page on your blog and then paste it in a reply to this comment. That will allow me to come and visit you in return!

      Lovely to ‘meet’ you Landry 😀
      Have a blessed rest of your day! ~ Cobs. 😀

  3. Cobs….your talent is amazing! You have truly been given a gift to cheer the world with the best cards and things that just make me smile. Those little waggy backsides make me think they are sniffing out rabbits in the bushes.
    Cannot wait to see what you do for the cat lovers!

    1. Hello Chicken. 😀
      Awww, it’s fabulous to see you here. I’m over-joyed that you like these Waggy Tails cards.
      When I came up with the vision for these, I laughed myself – so I figured that if I found them a bit of a giggle, then others would get a smile out of them too.

      The cats version … wait no longer! I scheduled a post to appear on the blog at 3am this morning, so it’s alive and kicking as we speak! (Dontcha love that schedule thing?! Lol)

      Thanks so much for coming Chicken. I love seeing your name here. It’s like getting a little tickly feeling inside my body, and it travels to my face where it turns into a smile. 😀
      Have a truly blessed rest of you day, my lovely friend. ~ Cobs. xxx

    1. Hello Ruthie 😀
      So good to see you.
      I’m tickled that you like the card, and adore the tale of Roosevelt and the Groomer. Bless his beautiful heart. He was obviously very happy and contented and felt really secure in he hands of the groomer.

      Thank you so much for coming Ruthie, and for the fabulous comment. Bless your beautiful heart.

  5. Oh my dear Cobs, such a bright spot you have put in my day. They really made me chuckle, one I needed so badly. It has been a rough week for my family. My 83 year old mother and her husband’s home caught fire in the wee hours of Saturday morning. We are all so thankful that the both made it out okay. We know some one was watching over them. Since I am their insurance agent I am going to be very busy helping them put their lives back together. And then the same day my oldest brother informed us that he has been diagnosed with cancer. Needless to say we have not told my mother yet. She has enough to handle right now. It is such a bright spot in my day when I can come and spend some time visiting with my blogging friends.

    1. Ohh, Nancee!
      I’m sat here with heavy heart and totally bewildered that such things should happen to such nice people.

      I’m eternally grateful that your mother and her husband made it to safety, but so distressed when I think about all the memories which were dotted around their home.

      Things like furniture and carpets; kitchen equipment et al …. those things are replaceable, but photographs, gifts from family and friends, from the little things like a drawing from a child, to the big things like jewellery or something belonging to her parents or children …. these are the things which cause the greatest amount of misery and sadness.

      I’m rather relieved to hear that you are their insurance agent, for in knowing this, I feel that her claim will be dealt with swiftly and carefully – which is what it needed for anyone at a time like this. (Not all insurance companies practise this though, I’ve found).

      I am so sorry to hear that your brother has been diagnosed with cancer. I am now praying that this is something that can be treated and that it’s something the medical profession feel can be over-come.
      I shall include him in my prayers, Nancee. I shall include you all.

      Sending you much love at this distressing time, and thinking of you all. ~ Cobs. xxx


  6. What a funny idea! I saw the first dog as digging for a bone in the garden, and the second one looks like he’s heard the key in the front door and he’s standing to attention ready to greet his owner with a lick 🙂
