Merry Little Christmas, MOJO322, DD81, MM86 & TSTR185

Good gracious, where have the last few days gone? I've been MIA from my blog with no real good explanation other than I have been burning my candle at both ends a bit lately. Anyone else in the same boat? So I tried to fix that by coming up with a card for not one, not two, not three, but four challenges! I've never done that before so lets see how that works out for me! I promise to keep it short and brief!

The color challenge is from Dynamic Duos, Midnight Muse and "Your Choice". I chose to combine it with Pear Pizzazz. I thought the colors worked well with Whisper White and a dash of silver.

The challenge at Merry Monday is to create a card using the chalkboard technique. I was inspired by Bonnie, who used a cardstock color other than black for her chalkboard.

The sketch is from Mojo Monday.  I love it, no more explanation necessary!

The last challenge is from The Shabby Tea Room, which is to use a tag in your project. I subsituted the center panel of the sketch with a tag to do so.

Well done, Sandy, on all counts! It is hard to keep it brief when you want to give the challenges their due, but you did a great post (much better than I do!). Your chalkboard technique on this card is fabulous!! Hugs, Darnell
