Happy New Year friends, can you believe another year has pasted?  All the blogs I have visited today started their post the same way, it does seem like time goes by so quickly!  I have been wanting to try the Chalkboard Technique, I saw it on Betsy Veldma's blog.  It was alos the technique over at SCS yesterday, so I played along.  I had to run to Mickey's to get the Colorbox Frosted White ink.  I look at my supplies and think I have so much, but there always seems to be summin I need...lol.  I have used the Verve stamps sets Hearts Desire and Loves Flower...these look sweet on the chalkboard, don't ya think?  They are also on sale, just in time for Valentines, my favorite non Christian holiday.  I luv all things pink, glitter and romantic...teehehe...hey, that sounds like my card!  Verve has the BEST Valentines/LOVE stamp sets, you can see the entire collection here!  I had a b;ast making this card, a technique I will be trying again!  Have a wonderful rest of the week....enjoy!

Love the black and white baker's twine and pink button on the left side! The stamps you've stamped in white on the black background are very striking. Love it all!
