Last Day of School!

At 12:15 today, we are officially on Summer vacation :) 

We were busy preparing teacher gifts, cards etc right up until bedtime last night.  The kids have been counting down, cleaning out their desks, partying all week, they are ready!!!!

What could be more appropriate for an end of the year teacher card than a card using the Chalkboard Technique? I can't think of anything.  If you haven't tried this technique, you should.  It's fun and the best part is that you really can't mess it up.  Have you ever seen a perfect chalkboard?  Never!

The Chalkboard Technique is the challenge this week over at StampNation.   StampNation is an online membership site chock full of crafty inspiration...over 300 video tutorials,  trends articles, challenges, CAS Lessons (taught by yours truly) and SO MUCH MORE!  I'd love to see you there!

I'm sure the teachers will love this card! Love that chalkboard look, and how you've popped it up against the chevron oval. Sweet apple, and the twine is the perfect color. Great card. Bev
