Crabby...

Hello friends - Hope you are well.
I'm a tad bit 'crabby' today.
Am trying to potty train Sophie, and she has her own ideas about when and where to potty.
I'm normally a very patient person, but my patience is wearing thin!

Anyway....on to my card!
Since I am crabby, I thought it a good day to pull out my Doodle Pantry Quirky Crab set and create. This set comes with both the outline and pre-colored images, two designer papers (both used on my card), and four sentiments, for only $2.50!!!


This one is pretty self-explanatory - didn't even have to color!!! If you have questions, let me know!

Hope you are having a great Wednesday!

Hugs and crabbiness...

Patti J.

Food for thought:
Promise only what you can deliver, then deliver more than you promised!

Such a cute card! I'm sorry the potty training isn't going as well as you'd like. I'm sure you will prevail though!

Hey crabbie, you are so funny. If you hadn't told us no one would ever know you didn't color that cutie. Sometimes it's just nice to do something easy for ya. Spent the day outside due to the beautiful we weather we are having today and can't hardly move after trimming all the bushes in the front, weeding, and then the mess of cleaning up. First time I've worked outside in over a month....sure felt good too. Now I'm gonna go take a nap cause can't hardly keep my eyes open...lol Love this adorable card! "Love & Hugs" Carol

Cute crab! I don't know how that crab could be crabby! Lovely colors! A puppies are great but they have their troubles!

Heide said...

Very cute, love the doodling around the green frame.
Everyone seems to be in love with the cute guy!

Dawnll said...

Crabby???
I can't believe my friend Patti would be that way...lol
Those pups are sometimes hard to train, but so worth it in the end.
Good Luck and hang in there.
That image is cute as can be-loving the pre-colored idea.

Fur babies can be so frustrating when it comes to "potty" training. Hang in there. Crabby is as cute as can be! Love your design and embellishments.

Just breath and say, this too shall pass. . .Gunther (even as smart as he is) was hard to train, until we found out why. . .we took him to the vet for his puppy check up and found out he had a bladder infection. Once the antibiotics worked, training was a breeze. Poor little guy. So if you continue to have problems with Soph, look for that. Really cute card too! Best, Curt

I was crabby yesterday but that's because we saw crabs at the harbor and ate yummy crab cakes! Great card!

Auntie Em said...

Well, I don't believe you are really crabby Patti but potty training sure can test a person's good mood! Hope things are going better.
Love your cute card! The black outlines and the twine and buttons are great embellishment.
Thanks for sharing! :)

Oh how cute is this crab and doesn't look a thing like you!!! Just kidding - I too have been a bit crabby myself but that will be for another day - or phone call. I love the precolored digis especially when you have to make a quick card like I had to last pm. Be patient fur-baby Mom.

LOVE your food for thought! Super adorable card GF and I know you won't be crabby long... it's not your nature!

Hi Patti, what an adorable card! Soo cute! I gotta use this adorable little guy!
Hugs, Sarah

Kristine said...

"You're too cute to be crabby"... didn't anyone tell you that? LOL. Those days of potty training are thankfully over for us--until I have g-kids! She'll get there! The first one always seems to take longer and then their siblings catch on much quicker seeing the others do it. Well, your card is vewy CUTE!! Love those pre-colored ones *Ü* Have a HAPPY day today you!! Hugs!

I think you are fibbing...I've never seen you crabby...this adorable card has me grinning though. How very cute this is and done in such fun, summery colors. Great job, my "crabby" friend.

Very cute sentiment for that image, Patti! Love it!

DD said...

I'm sorry she's being so tough to train. Hang in there, MommaG. You're a saint, but even saints are entitled to loosing their patience after enough time has passed. Love you!

Lisa said...

I hope the training is going better! Your "crabby" card is so darn cute - I like how you used the twine and the colors are wonderfu!l :)

Karen Howard said...

What a fun card and perfect for a friend!

Robbie said...

Love this and the fun papers and crab--great sentiment. Like how you mounted the side panel, the faux stitching and the twine.

Amanda Mertz said...

Patti- I hope the training is going better! I feel your pain...I have a 3 year old boy who I feel like we've been "potty training" all summer! Your crab is super cute & I love how you did the baker's twine! TFS!

Scrapaddict said...

Love the cute papers and the the twine!

Melisa Waldorf said...

I feel your pain. My Yorkie is 6 years old and she occasionally regresses. She isn't crazy about walking in the grass when it grows a little bit. She thinks she's a princess. Sometimes she goes on the patio to avoid the grass. I think I need a doggy therapist! Ha!

Cute and I love the sentiment!
