Fun with chalk

Hello everyone!  How is everyone?  Did you get some warm weather yet?  Here in Oregon this weekend, we are expecting warm weather Sunday and Monday.  Perfect weather to play with sidewalk chalk.  I have a little boys birthday card to share as my design team post for ScrappyDew Digital cutting files.  But of course lyrics first...

ScrappyDew digital file "Chalk The Walk"
~ScrappyDew Vault "Mouse Memories 2014" (gift tag)
~Silver Bullet 24" electronic die cutting machine
~Sure Cuts A Lot Software V4.044
~Who knows what brand of scrap paper
~Blue Raspbery Strips by Deja Views
~Miscellaneous tools
~My NEW We Are Memory Keepers Envelope board from Mary

For this card I used the center step card pattern provided by by Frances Byrns over at Splitcoast Stampers.  Gang, if you haven't visited SCS you are missing out on great tutorials and examples and so much more.  Go check it out.

So the Chalk the Walk file from ScrappyDew was a wonderful pick for the center step card format.  Very straight forward and left tons of room for decorating.  I kept it simple on the outside.  For the inside I found some labels of chalk paper and wrote my note in my chalk.  The little boy had just returned from his 1ST trip to where the mouse lives on the west coast so I made him a mouse gift tag using the Mouse Memories 2014 ScrappyDew file.  Turned out so cute.  Here are all the bit and pieces put together.

The front of the card, just love the background paper!

Here is the label

Here is his birthday persent
All wrapped up and ready to go across the street.
Now when Chase opened it, he knew exactly what it was.  He even asked "Jana, you come draw with me".  He is so cute.  So yes, I will be playing with sidewalk chalk this summer with the Chase man.  (give mommy some rest, he is 3 after all)

Hope you have enjoyed this weeks post.  I have an exciting announcement over on the Facebook page on May 9th.  Please join me for some fun to celebrate my birthday!

Bright blessings, Jana
