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.

Sit Long, Talk Much, Laugh Often!

Welcome to the 4th Challenge of Chalk-Ah-Lot Cafe--use chalk as a background. Remember you must used our chalks BUT any image!!!! If you want the chalk....be sure to check out the website! Check it out here! Great offerings on there!!!!  What a great way to do the background! *Here is the website to enter the challenge!

I used a Paper Studios Whimsy Frame embossing folder and after the embossing just applied the powdered chalk directly on the paper with a sponge dauber! So easy and NO mess and NO fixative necessary!!! Just sponge, wipe and DONE!!!!

The cs was GKD white and K and Company dp and that is what I matched the colors to. I was SO pleased to find chalk and copics that were an EXCELLENT match!! The stamp image (from Stamp N Plus Scrap N) was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento and then I colored the tea pots and cups with Copics and accented with Sakura glitter pens. The sentiment I stamped twice and sponged with with chalk, then traced the letters with Sakura glitter pens and glued the layer on top...didn't want to have a total pop up look so just a second layer did the trick. Then added some ribbon and some bling. A great card to send to a friend who YOU love to chat with!

Hope to see your entry!!! The winner will receive a mini stamp set!
