Chalk Talk - Grateful there's you

It is Tuesday ... and it's over 90 degrees and humid - yes, in September - in Michigan. So I am staying inside with my air going.  I cleaned out my refrigerator (tomorrow is garbage day) and 3 cabinets so far.  Feels good to get some things taken care of.  Talk about expired dates on food!  Well, it's gone.

Today I am showing a card done in two colors and just a bit different. That's another aspect of cardmaking that makes it fun for me - personalizing my cards for the people I make them for or even to relay my mood for that particular day.  I suppose most rubber stampers do the same thing.

This card uses our Chalk Talk stamp set - I chose to use Whisper White cardstock with Gumball Green and Pistachio Pudding for the first and Midnight Muse and Marina Mist for the second.  I made another using Primrose Petals but I sent it to someone.  I love, love, love our In Colors!! Wonder which ones will eventually make it into our regular families of colors ......

Accessories I used include:  Gumball Green and Midnight Muse 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon, Basic Pearl Jewels along with, of course, my Mr. Big Shot and Chalk Talk FrameLits and my Large Oval Punch.  Hey, as much as I do love my Big Shot, my punches do not sit there unused - no way!  once again, I did not add a regular sentiment stamp, but I do like the saying on the punched piece - I know I sure have lots of people that I am grateful for here in this world.  

Have a great day, stay cool and be creative whenever you have the chance - makes me feel good!  

God Bless, Sassy Stamper Shirley
