Have I told you how much I love Chalk Couture?!!  Love, love, love.  A combination of transfers - Winterwoodland Scene and Nativity.  Here is a picture of my latest creation:



I love it!  It turned out so cool.....like I said in the video it's like all the animal are saying (as they are looking up)  What's up?  What is going on?!!  So Fun to do!!

Take a few minutes and watch my video.... only 2 1/2 minutes.  :-)




 So fun, so easy!  This will be up in my family room for the Christmas season!  Stay tuned for what will be up after Christmas.

Christmas Dashing Deer



Thank you Deb Valder for another great card.  Take a look


This is CASEd from Deb with a few changes by me.  Only because I had to use what I have.  I used the 'Merry Christmas' from the stamp set Holiday Wishes #SS-0469 from Fun Stampers Journey.  I used Deb's idea on the ribbon.  It had white checks in it so I sponged Oatmeal Cookie on it to go with my color scheme better.  I also used accessories I already had around the deer's neck. 

Some more pictures:





And

Gather & Grateful - Comfort and Joy!

Have I said how much I love Chalk Couture lately?!  LOL, I am obsessed with this wonderful product.  Please check it out at my website cheriecriswell.chalkcouture.com

I have a two sided board to show you today.  First our thanksgiving side in which I used three silk screen transfer.





I used Fancy Corners, Gather & Grateful and Falling Leaves.  The board I had already weathered to make it look more like an old Farmhouse look that is so popular right now.

Then on the other side..........




Whoa! Shut the barn door!
I had painted the buffalo plaid a few days ago following a video from Splinters and Strings.  I then put our Chalk Couture transfer Good Tidings (which sadly is not available) on top with our white chalk paste.  Love it!  You could use any of our big solid prints on top of this in white and it really shows off don't you think?  I'm thinking green, or black & gray plaid.  hmmmmmmm.............

One trick:  Since this is a new and large transfer when I took it off to clean it the sticky side stuck to itself - OH NO!  I thought I ruined my transfer, but I remembered I read somewhere to put it in water.  So I did and that did the trick, however it was not instant - slow and easy as to not distort the transfer.
