This week's Make It Monday challenge with Papertrey Ink involves a technique to making cards look like chalkboards. I really love this effect and my husband especially loved the cards I made. He actually did a double take to see how it was done. He said, "You're really getting good!" ... warmed my heart and scored him some points :)
I liked the way it turned out - so I made two. Both are destined for the Operation Write Home basket (only 48 more to go to meet my 2013 goal). I have a few more ideas using this technique so I might hide away in my studio a wee bit longer.

Button and felt (the best in town!) also from Papertrey Ink.
I didn't send out many Christmas cards this year - just ran out of time. Instead I opted to send out some 2013 calendars. I made couple different versions. The original inspiration came from one of the Papertrey Ink designers but I can't seem to find the link (sorry).
