Slugs and snails, and puppy dog tails!

I am proud to share this photo of my latest card creation, made for a colleague who has just given birth to a beautiful baby boy.

I'm indebted to Tracy Gough (you can visit her blog - Scrap Happens - listed on the right!) for coming up with such a brilliant idea, and for allowing me to copy it. Thank you Tracy!

I used my Cricut Create and the Storybook cart to create the ampersand card base. I cut two, and trimmed the second version slightly to provide a firmer card base (and enable it to stand up properly - a previous version I made using the Wild Cart pram image was too floppy by half!).

You can't see them in my photo, but there are plenty of blue sparklies added to the front!

The dog stamp came from Paper Arts and the snail image is one from Clipart.

I've had some lovely comments from colleagues who've seen the card, so thank you again, Tracy, for being so generous with your creative genius!


  1. Beautiful and very unusual - what a good idea for using the "&" thing.

  2. Thanks for the mention Gill, you've done a fabulous job on your card.
    Hugs Tracy x

  3. What an amazing card! I'm a fan of ampersands too!
