Book Challenge

I belong to an on-line book club, Book Endz here. This month our book was Emily and Einstein. What a great book.  It might be my favorite of the books that we read so far. We are supposed to do a project to go along with the book so this is what I came up with.




The dog is from Magnolia. He has a butterfly that goes with him but I left the butterfly off because it didn't really seem to go with the book at all. He, because it is a man/dog, is colored with copics. The words and the circle are from the angel company. The dp is from basic grey. The ribbon is tied with iridescent twine. I love the paw print twill tape at the bottom. I have it in cooking motif and ruler measurements as well.  I used my nestabilities to cut out the  scalloped ovals. Hope you enjoy the card. I know you would enjoy the book, Emily and Einstein by Linda Francis Lee.

I could not help but laugh when I read your post! For someone who has not read the book - the man dog thing just made me laugh right out loud. Your project is cute - I loved the book and like you, thought it was the best so far. Really pretty card even though it is a "man/dog" card! See you tomorrow night.

This is a darling image. You've colored it so cute, and think maybe he is more like Sandy than any other dog. Love your card.
