For all you Cobwebs fans out there which I’m sure there are many, you will be pleased to see that the little Woofly dog is still alive and barking and has made his way to a new home.
I saw this delightful card on one of the marvelous blogs that Cobwebs treats us to, and fell in love with the mounted canine straight away. He was as skillfully crafted as the rest of the cards she makes but as my daughter Sarah adores animals, he stood out to me particularly.
Don’t miss out!
If you have never had the opportunity to be enchanted by one of Cobweb’s creations and taken on a journey from inspiration to last drop of glue, then you are truly missing out one one of the best craft experiences of your life.
Attention to detail
Each detail has been made with such care and attention that it is impossible not to pick up the heartbeat of joy that’s going on inside this dear lady as she designs a masterpiece that can never be thrown away.
Up close and personal
The intricacy is even more amazing when you have the chance to view, and hold her cards close up.
Grab A Peek
I’m not going to describe the card in detail because it is plain to see how gorgeous it is, but also because the craftswoman herself has already done so, perfectly. The link to the pretty pup is here.

A Gift So Magical
Cobwebs kindly donated this card to me when she discovered how much I desired something like it for Sarah’s 9th birthday. Usually they are donated to very lucky charity shops, in order to bless people in need, so I am even more grateful to Sir Woofly for having splendid hearing and promptly hiding from Cobwebs the day she came to collect her cards and transport them away. On arriving at a particular shop, she was confused as to where he had run off to, then came back home to find my request to buy one sitting in her comments box.
As you can see from the pictures below, Sarah was ecstatic to discover that the delightful doggie had had a good rollick in mud, then had run all over the envelope, and even hid right inside!
And Cobwebs always likes to plant little surprises just where you wouldn’t expect them to pop up. We had a pretty satin bow on the inside and two googlie eyes appeared looking through the letterbox flap at the back.
The Joys Of Childhood
Oh the joys of childhood! Oh the joys of being like a child when you’re an adult! No matter what we’ve been through in life, God lets us see the fun side of life if we let him. Cobs reminds me of this and she helps remind me to slow down again and see things through the eyes of a child once more. Jesus even said, “Unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven.” Of course he’s not referring to tantrums and silliness, but being pure minded and trusting and taking things at his word without trying to reason things away with too much intellect.
Up You Get, Brush Your Knees, Dust Your Heart.
It’s so hard to trust when we’ve been let down, deceived or simply mocked isn’t it? But when we let him pick up the pieces of our broken heart, dust it off and begin to mend it, we get back a bit of that innocence again. It seems to me that Cobwebs does this beautifully, and because of this, God is using her to make many sad eyes smile again.
