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.

Happy Saint Patricks Day!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day from Chalk-Ah-Lot Cafe! This  is for the challenge use chalk as a background.
 To see all of the Design Team samples...go here...

To enter the challenge go here....
The Darice embossing folder Butterfly seemed to work perfectly for the background for this adorable Queen Patty bee from Stamp N Plus Scrap N. The sentiment is from there also. I embossed the white cs by GKD and then used chalk as a background...direct on paper application with a sponge. Some of the accenting was done with Sakura glitter pens. The image was stamped with Versa Mark and then embossed with green glitter embossing powder and colored with Copics and Sakura glitter pens. All was layered on green grass cs by GKD and Best Creation dp. Added some ribbon and a little bling. The sentiment was stamped with Cottage ivy Memento.

And Happy St. Patty's Day to you...and hope you can find something you would like to do with chalk as a background!
