  1. OMgoodness this is fabulous. I have never tried the chalkboard technique. The inside of your card could be a front it's beautiful.

  2. oh wow! i love the chalkboard look anyway, but putting it on the chocolate brown instead of black gives it such a gorgeous soft look! <3

  3. I love YOUR card, but I've not embraced this technique myself. I admire people who can do it, though.

    And I'm all done making holiday cards! I play challenges all year long, and I might be burned out now. Time to MAIL!

  4. Adorable! I've never tried the chalkboard technique, but your card makes me want to. And that inside is just divine!!

  5. You are so good at the chalkboard look, Chris! This card is definitely no exception. :)

  6. Very nice, Chris! I like the brown and the CAS!

  7. Ohhhhh la la - I love love love this card! Chalkboard is one of my faves too! Lovin that snowman! Awesome job sistah!

  8. That is a cool design, Chrispy! I so adore that you did the inside to match the outside! And your chalkboard looks like leather somehow. It's totally awesome!! Thanks for the inspiration! Happy Holiday Hugs! Darnell
