Chalkboard Fun

Happy Tuesday, my sweet blog friends!  I hope you are all having a great week.  Some of you stopped by yesterday and saw my post for the Daydream Designs Blog Hop.  But just in case you missed it, you can click on the following link to take to you my post from yesterday where you can join in the Daydream Designs Blog Hop for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the awesome Daydream Designs Store.  Here is a card I made last night using one of the brand new chalkboard images from Daydream Designs.  I just fell in love with this set, and I think you will too!  This card uses just one of the images from this awesome set.
I used the Chalkboard Valentine Love Digi Set from Daydream Designs, a rubber heart charm and "Good Memories" sticker tab from October Afternoon, some recollections flowers, a row of hearts cut from cream wool felt using a Papertrey Ink heart border die-cut, a strip of turquoise washi tape, machine stitching, and some scrunched seam binding.  This just shows you how incredibly easy it is to use Diane's sweet Daydream Designs to make a quick, darling card.
 
I'm entering the following challenges with this card:
 
Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog - This week Simon Says "Use Washi Tape", and my strip of turquoise plaid washi tape is right underneath the row of felt hearts.
 
Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge Blog - Challenge: "What Are You Known For"?  Well, I would have to say that sewing machine stitching on cards has become my "signature move", and you will find it on pretty much everything I create.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge Blog - Challenge #64 - Valentine's Day/Love - Plus Use Ribbon - I almost always use ribbon - LOVE IT, and Really Reasonable Ribbon has such an AWESOME ribbon variety in their sweet store!

And don't forget to join in all the fun on the Blog Hop.  You can either use my link, or start on Diane Noble's Blog for your chance to win the grand prize of a $20 gift certificate to Daydream Designs.  I hope that my sample card will get you excited about the new chalkboard images available now in the Daydreams Store.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a blessed day!
Karen
