The Merry Monday challenge this week is to use a Chalkboard style.
I saw this early in the year and thought it was super cool. I even wrote more than one Trendy Tuesday article for the Paper Crafters Library about the technique (one for the technique, and one featuring products with this style). I've gotta tell you I struggle with the genuine technique. My efforts at "chalking" black cardstock have just looked so messy. So my next best option- a My Minds Eye Chalk Studio sticker that I stamped and embossed my greeting on!
And now for my Merry Monday success story...
I have been playing with the Merry Monday challenge on & off all year. Sometimes I created something in time to post to the challenge, and sometimes I just got a card made after the challenge week passed. As I sat down after Thanksgiving to review what cards I would still need to make, I was so excited to see I have PLENTY! Yes, Christmas cards were already prepared for the year, but it's fun to make more just for the fun of it! This takes so much pressure off and gives me lots of time to complete more handmade gifts. HOORAY! Thanks, Lesley!
Enjoy & have a great weekend!
