Happy Friday everyone!! Not only is it Friday but it's also the first day of my vacation!!! I'm feeling relaxed already. I had an awesome day today. I checked out this really adorable store in Oakdale called "I Love Paris". That store is amazing!! I wanted to buy a bunch of everything...but I only got my granddaughter some pretties for her hair. (She doesn't really like things in her This is another card that I made last weekend using the chalkboard technique. I really like that technique...i'm going to use it more often. Hope you like the card as much as I enjoyed making it.

Happy Monday!!

Happy Monday everyone!! I made some cards over the weekend and I wanted to show one of them to you today. I've been wanting to try the chalkboard technique for a very long time and yesterday was the day!! After being shamed (j/k! I needed that boost!!!!) that I haven't kept my blog up, I decided to give it a whirl. I do love how the card turned out. I love the chalked colors and how great it looks against the  basic black cardstock. In this card I used Stampin Up's basic black, old olive & eggplant cardstock, The ink that was used was White craft ink by Stampin Up! of course. The chalk colors I used are eggplant, real red & Old Olive. The ribbon I used is Old Olive...ever since my Stampin Sister Barbara showed me how to make the perfect bow...i absolutely LOVE , LOVE, LOVE making bows. I did make a few other cards over the weekend and I will share them with you throughout the week.  I hope you like the card as much as I loved making it.
