Scary Chalkboard

Saturday, October 26, 2013

Happy Saturday!  Hope it's a gorgeous day wherever you are!  One quick post today...


STAMPS:  Sentiment (Raisin Boat).
PAPER: Kraft cardstock; DP - Black Widow (We R Memory Keepers).
INK: Versamark.
EXTRAS: White emboss powder; notebook border punch; black/white baker's twine; pumpkin sticker; decorative paper straws; mini chalkboard.

I'm slowly recovering from a major incident late last evening...disk crash!  Basically, I've lost (hopefully temporarily) all my photos and digital work from the last 2 years!  <gasp> <faint>

Luckily I had a backup for everything past that!  Yet it happened at a most inopportune time --- when I was trying to post this card for some challenges!

Needless to say, I didn't get it in to the other two challenges.  <sigh> <weeping>

And you will notice there is no watermark on my photo.  I lost that too.  So I will have to either try and dig deeper for it or create a new one.  Not exactly something to do when your schedule is already jampacked with too much to do over the next two weeks!  

I'm so disgusted I can't cry.  The ones I'm sick over are ones of family occasions and my trip to NYC with my BFF.   Consolation:  At least some of them are on my Facebook profile.  Thank the Lord for Facebook!  right?

Anyway, I majorly digress!

I did this card for the sketch at Retrosketches and was going to put it in at Drunken Stampers too (wood challenge).  I've had these mini chalkboards and I got to thinking it would be cool to use one and do an actual chalkboard sentiment.  Only problem was it was too deep for the stamp on the acrylic block to stamp.  So I had to manually stamp the image with just the stamp in my hands.  


I will be back blogging later this evening or tomorrow after I've had a chance to "Keep Calm and Carry On"!  LOL

Weekend Blessings!
