So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Chalk-Ah-Lot Blog Hop!! Day 2

Welcome to Chalk-Ah-Lot Cafe's
First Blog Hop!
Feb 28th - March 1st
That gives you 3 days to play!
Here is my project!

This is using a Cottage Cutz diecut. I did the chalk 2 different ways for this sample. This first one is totally done with chalk direct to paper and the second one is done totally with chalk mixed with 3D lacquer. When you look at the 2 you can see the difference in the shine of the image. Both are done on Vivid Raspberry cs by MFP and K & Company dp. Sakura glitter pens were used for some accent color. The sentiment is from Stamp N Plus N Scrap N. Spellbinders Scalloped ovals large were used to cut out the sentiment. Added a little ribbon, bow and some bling!
