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.

Thanks for "beeing" so wonderful - Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to Chalk-Ah-Lot Cafe's
April Blog Hop!
April 3rd - April 5th
That gives you 3 days to play!

Today's card was made with stamps from Stamp N Plus Scrap N and Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

The background for the sentiment was made with chalk and shaving cream. VERY easy to do....put some shaving cream on a plate...sprinkle on some chalk...as many colors as you would like...take a knife and cut through the shaving cream which will mix up the chalk colors....then take your piece of cardstock and rub it through the shaving cream wiping off any extra...let it dry and then you can stamp on it or use it as a background.

The beehive had the chalk applied directly to it with a cotton ball and the bees have Sakura glitter pens added to it to highlight the stripes.

Added some ribbon, brads and flowers and a thank you card is done!

Here is my project.
