For those of us that have been on Daylight Savings Time, did you remember to turn your clock back? It always is a bit of an adjustment for me when we change back.  How about you?

My card today is in preparation for Christmas. As a former teacher, I just had to try the Chalkboard Technique with this fun stamp from Wonderful Year.


It is remarkably easy to do.  Just stamp the sentiment on Basic Black C.S. with White Craft Ink.  Then randomly sponge to give the appearance of chalk dust. That is all there is to this technique.  


Do you ever look at a finished card and think – oh, I should have done xxxxx  to my card?  It happens to me all of the time! On this card, I think, oh I should have used Wink of Stella on Santa's hat – specifically on the fur.  Hold on a minute please, I am going to do it and will be right back.  I applied Wink of Stella & it gives a nice shine on my card but it does not show up on the photograph.  But, if you make a card like this, I would use the Wink of Stella, if you have it.


On another note, I will be babysitting this week which means that I won't be posting until the weekend.  I have been attending a scrapbook retreat all weekend (sleeping at home) and leave for Salt Lake early in the morning.  I am working furiously to finish 4 scrapbook albums for our 4 grandchildren from out trip to Southern California this past summer.  Wish me luck!  I have a long way to go on the albums.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
