This is a building block card. No, I didn't come up with this unique card fold ... I found it in on Split Coast Stampers website.
First, let me tell you that the heart shape filled with smaller hearts is a die cut. My friend Mary was over last weekend and brought her new dies for us to see and had die cut several of them using white cardstock for us to have. Mary also provided the multi-colored scrapbook paper that I used behind the heart die.
On the front of the blue card I placed strips of purple and orchid scraps that I had available, and before attaching them I ran them through the cuttlebug using 3 different cuttlebug embossing border folders.
Here is a link to the Split Coast Stampers website so you can read their tutorial on this card if you wish..
It wasn't difficult to do... try it!
Before I attempted the card, I used a piece of plain white card stock to ensure I would understand the instructions for creating this card. I'll save that white card as a template to help me if/when I make another of these cards

For November I used a cuttlebug embossing folder and a cuttlebug die to create the pumpkin theme. The 2 acorns in the right bottom corner are made of felt and I found them at a craft store. I typed the 'give thanks' and printed on card stock.

I hope my friend likes the card. If she doesn't I'll make her another and keep this one for myself. I'm sure I will be able to find a use for it since it isn't specific about what type of health issue the dog has.
I love challenges like this... and love making dog cards.

I created the pages using watercolor paper and several colors of walnut ink sprays. I wanted to achieve the look of mud since most, if not all, of these obstacle races involve walking, running, or crawling through mud at some point in the race.
Once I organized the pictures I got the idea to create a caption for as many pictures as possible. There are very few that we, I had Bob help out, couldn't think of a caption.
I typed the captions out on the computer, printed on paper, cut out with decorative scissors, and then applied some brown ink around the edges before gluing them in the book.
