I'm back... and what has been happening???!!!

Well what a fabby time we had over in very sunny Cornwall!!

We do love it, no computer and our phones tend not to work much which is lovely - well until I started work this morning and saw my 600 emails lol...

So today I have an Inky card for you..

I purchased the Lili with chalkboard stamp a few weeks ago and coloured it in..but what can you do with a blackboard??

I tried to colour it lighter, make it a white board...but I wanted it to be a chalk board!!

Then like a bolt of lightening it hit me....

Use a white gel pen!!!!

The great thing is you can write any message!!

You can get the stamp here
The papers are basic grey so luscious and I got it over at crafty Emma's with the card candy too

I am entering:

Paper Sundaes - Happy Birthday

MAWTT - 2B's (basic grey papers and blackboard)

Thanks for stopping over xx
