My husband is off to work this crisp, sunny Sunday, helping with timing preparations for an International Paralympic Cross-country Skiing and Biathlon Competition set to run during most of the week, where over 120 athletes from all over the world will be competing. It's quite the hoopla, as the races serve as qualifying events for Paralympics to be held in Sochi, in March. Fortunately, temperatures are set to warm slightly, which is a very good thing. Have you seen what those skiers wear? Yikes! Not enough layers, people...not enough!!
Brisk out today, but the skies are blue...here's a glimpse of what I see out my kitchen patio windows (which, by the way, are single-pane glass. Seriously. I'm not sure what the builders were thinking...Drapes to cut the draft are on my Christmas list.). The mountains are so spectacular....
Anyway, I'm here to share my first ever attempt at the chalkboard technique, which was this week's Merry Monday challenge.
The amazing Darnell is the guest designer, and with her card as inspiration - and as much as I was reluctant to try - I decided - last moment - to give it a go. More practice needed, but at least I can say 'trend tried'. My layout comes from Freshly Made Sketches #115:
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!
