Chalk Up Another Holiday! FMS115, Merry Monday #86




I figured I couldn't miss when I combined the challenges of two amazingly talented designers!  Jen Timko's wonderful graphic design at Freshly Made Sketches plus Lesley Croghan's charming chalkboard challenge at Merry Monday equals one sketchy, merry Christmas card!

Fabulous card Linda! You've combined both challenges perfectly! The chalkboard effect looks so good - it's a technique I still haven't tried, but you've inspired me to give it a go!

Oh, man, Linda, I am so stealing that sweet button and tiny tags idea! I love teeny tags and always struggle with how to attach them, so thank you! Your chalkboard technique is superb and looks so wonderful against the big polka dots!! Hugs, Darnell
