Chalk Ah Lot Cafe Blog Hop Day 1

Hello! Welcome to Chalk-Ah-Lot Cafes First Blog Hop! Feb 28th - March 1st That gives you 3 days to play!
Day 1 means 1st of 3 projects for this 3 day hop....
So for todays project I did a simple and easy card...

I have named it
Footprints in the Sand....heehee
real original I know...haha

I used the foot stamps from Stamp N Plus Scrap N web store... oh so cute...I stamped the image in a brown and then took Teaddy Bear colored Powdered Chalk by Chalk Ah Lot Cafe Chalk Store that sponsers our Chalk Ah Lot Weekly Challenge Site and rubbed it with a cotton ball and/or a fluffy paint brush, I like to do both to get a good background...I think it looks like the feet are in I found the poem 'Foot Prints In The Sand' on the internet and printed it out... cut it to size ... added the little feet in the blocks and there you have a wonderful easy card for someone that needs a 'pick me up'...
oh and I also ink'd the edges with a brown ink on all the parts ...
I like to do that on almost all of my you already know... lol...
I love how this turned out... it's maybe my best card to
