Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi Everyone!

Just popping in super quick and I mean quick we are off to my son's first college baseball game - SOOOO excited for him :)

I wanted to share a card I made for The kraft Journal - Discover something new challenge. I had been really wanting to try the Chalkboard technique so I took this opportunity to try it and well I like it! It's fun, forgiving and looks nice!

So here is a card that I actually will use at the Thanksgiving table as a little decoration :)
That stamp was one I won from over at my buddies Karen!

This is the prettiest chalkboard I have seen in a long time, blue is really effective. The wood grain is also wonderful. This is so beautifully done, thank you for posting with us. We hope to see you again next week.
