with powdered chalks...

OMG, she is just so darling...

how funny is that...

I wanted to do an encouraging card for all those that like that 
little something...

Remember, YOU CAN DO IT...

November Challenge Winner Announced

I would like to congratulate Laura at for being Chalk N Stock's November challenge. Please contact me and let me know you saw this post and I'll lead you in the direction to your winnings.

A BIG thank you to all who participated! We really appreciated it and hope you will join us for this month's challenge that runs through December 31st, 2013.

Our challenge is Anything Goes and here is some inspiration from me for my DT post today.

I used color pencils to color my digital stamp but I used my new Metallic Cream Chalks to high light the snow in soft grey and the branches of the tree in green. You can head to my blog: Lorby's World to find out all the details.

Thanks for stopping by today and see you Monday.

Good Morning...Santa got a hat...

If you follow me on my personal blog
you will see that I have been addicted to making these Christmas candy wrappers...
they have made a great gift for those coworkers...

Well today I thought I would add stardust chalk to the front,
on the white cannot see it very well...
I even tried to use versamark pen to get it to stick better...
but it still does not show well in this photo...
well in 'real' life it gives it a shine...

I also added a Santa hat...
these things are so darn darling...
more info on my blog

Let me know what you think...
Enjoy this month long challenge
be sure to use the linky tool and be a follower...
other than that it's really pretty easy...
You chalk on you project, it can be chalk ink or 
powdered chalk or chalk cakes...just use chalk...
you too will become addicted to using chalk...

Happy Chalk'n

New Challenge - New Rules

Welcome back to Chalk N Stock and our challenge. We're changing a few things this month and know it is for the better the design team and you. Instead of having hops every two weeks, we're having a month long hop but now instead of only being able to contribute two projects to the challenge you can contribute to four using our linky tool.

We'll be offering 5 digital stamps of the winners choice from Bugaboo Stamps. If you haven't checked out their digital stamps, you have to!

The design team here at Chalk N Stock thought they would give you a little inspiration for this chilly December month, so hang the holly and grab those chalks and get chalking...

You can click on the picture to go to the designer's blog to find out how they made their card and where they used chalk on it. You would be surprised???


Challenge Rules:

1. You must use some type of chalk on your project be it pastels or chalk ink

2. You may only enter up to four projects for the month.

3. You must tell on your blog you are in this hop with a link back here to Chalk n Stock.

4. Use linky tool to link up.
