This month I'm featuring the chalkboard technique on my cards.
  It's a fun and easy technique.  So let's get started....get out your
chalk............nope..........get out your white inks.  I prefer to use my VersaMagic white chalk ink for the powdered chalk effect on my cards but for the actual stamping I like Colorbox white pigment ink and white embossing powder.  Here is our Holiday stamp set for the month, it's full of sayings and a couple of terrific images.  My card is a standing chalkboard to go along with my theme of the chalkboard technique.  It's a cool card don't you think?  I saw it online somewhere but forgot to make a note who originated this card.  Second is a tag that would fit any gift. 
 Please continue on to see what Janine has to show you for her holiday cheer.
Here's the Design Team:
