Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge plus a 2RedBananas card!!!

Hey everyone!!! How was your weekend???

Ours was fun - the girls had some friends over for *sleepovers* and we've been mainly at the pool!!! It's been so super hot here in Georgia!!! I'm ready for a rainy day!!!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge !!! Have we got a lovely challenge for you this week!!!! It is the last Tuesday of the month, so it is time for another Guest Challenge Designer!!!

We are welcoming the super sweet and oh so talented Linda Lucas also known as *Lovely Linda * on SCS!!! Linda is hosting today's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday and she is challenging to use *CHALK* on our cards/projects!!!

I haven't used chalks in sooooo long!!! I had to hop on my computer and google some different techniques!!! This is what you can do with them......color, sponge distress, create popping pastels, chalkboard technique, or choose another , the point is to dust of that chalk container and Chalk It!!! We would love to see what you create!

Here is how I used my chalks..... First I inked my main image from the Summer on the Patio Set with Versamark. Then I took a few Q-Tips and rubbed them in different color chalks. Next I gently bounced them over my stamped image. Voila!!! Hope you like it???

Please stop by Betty, Cindy, Connie, Dee and Linda's blog to see their take on the challenge!!!
