Chalking it Up....

Yes, a title in more ways then one I think. Two weeks ago Charmine issued a challenge to the Pretties Girl's to create a card using chalks, and to be honest I had no idea where to start. Well, except that I needed to find my chalks of course, that is always a good starting point, but from there I was a bit lost. I ended up deciding on create a card using February's Stamp of the Month. If you are a member or sign up before January 31st you will receive this stamp in February before she is released to the general public, how wonderful is that! I also decided to try Julee's Mojo Monday Week 70 sketch, I used to complete these sketches from time to time and they are always on my list of things to do...but today it got done! Hope you like today's card, I had fun in the long run creating this card, even though it reminded me why I don't use my chalks very often.
