Inspired Stamps Chalkboard and Giveaway

Thankful Easel Chalkboard

As so often happens with my artwork, this little project was a result of what was laying on my desk following a week of crafting frenzy! 

thanks chalkboard
Most of the elements of this chalkboard are actually leftovers from other projects that I tweaked for this Inspired Stamps Design Team assignment.  Our mission: create a thankful project.
Of course, I had to use the adorable HLO:Thankful Girl.  She’s so sweet in her dressy outfit.  Please click on the photo so you can see the details.  I gave her sparkly shoes to go with her sparkly flower in her hair.  The leaves are stamped with the “Thanks” stamp from the More Perfect Sentiments set (again to see this clearly, click on the photo). The gold embossed sentiment is from the same set and I actually altered it a bit to use for my purpose by cutting off the word “you” at the end.  The beauty of these clear stamps is that in the future I can replace the “you” at the end of the phrase by putting them both on a block and stamp it as needed.  

The people I am thankful for are written in chalk because the black cardstock is actually Chalk Stock:). 
other supplies used:gold embossing powder (CTMH); leaves and flowers cut with CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cart; CTMH Goldrush, Chocolate and Autumn Terracotta ink; CTMH Glitz in bronze and stardust; Copics; bronze flower; scrap paper

OK, I have been sitting on 149 followers now for several days and I want to turn it over to 150.  Anyone who becomes a NEW follower and leaves a comment on this post will be entered into a drawing for the Thankful Girl stamp from me!  If you are already a follower and would like a chance to win, leave me a comment and then tell a friend to come follow and leave a comment that YOU sent them here.  Your friend will have a chance and you will have a chance.  There will only be ONE winner.  I will draw a name Friday morning if I reach 150 or more followers.  Good Luck!
