Chalk drawings

There's something so absolutely "summer" about chalk drawings on the driveway (probably because we can't make them in the winter with all the snowbanks in the way! LOL!)

Here's what Sage and I made this afternoon:

And I also wanted to share the rest of the card set that I made for my pastor (I shared the first half here), using the patterned paper stripped Mat Stack #5 images that I cut out.

For all of the sets, I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (stamper's select white), stamps (leaf prints), twine and dies (mat stack #5 & leaf prints). The patterned paper strips came from my scraps and include: SU!, Basic Grey & Bo Bunny.

On this card, I used a PTI sentiment stamp from Communique Sentiments.

The sentiment here comes from Happy Trails (I selectively inked the "thank you , teacher" stamp) and Text Style I.

The sentiment here comes from Happy Trails and the flourishes are from Fall Elegance.

Here, the little leaves are from Fall Elegance and the sentiment is from Communique Sentiments.

Thanks for looking!
