OODLES OF POODLES

This one of my all time favorite cards.  I got the directions for this side step card from SPLITCOAST STAMPERS.  The poodles are from three different cartridges-"Create a Critter", "Paper Pups", and "Twinkle Toes"  The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms.  The poodle on the side is on an Action Wobble that I won from Janis at Pause, Dream, Enjoy.  They can be purchased at    Royal Castle Shoppe
I am entering this into a few challenges. FCCB-Fun with Puns: Exploring Cricut -Love Your pet and Paper Playtime has a Use a Sentiemnt challenge
