Back to the Blackboard challenge

   After a month long celebration for Neat and Tangled's first birthday, Little Tangles has a new challenge this fortnight:
  Will you join us?  Get out your white pigment ink and black card stock and have fun!  I used two different stamp sets:
Santa's Notes (curly frame)
Tip:  I could have masked the "naughty/nice/undecided", but I am not very good at masking.  I actually used my Xacto knife and Tim Holtz scissors to cut out an inner rectangle inside the frame.  I used to cringe at the thought of cutting my stamps, but they fit back together perfectly on the acrylic block if I want to use them as they are originally drawn.
stamp sets:  Neat and Tangled "Santa's Notes" and "Just Thinking of You"
papers:  My Mind's Eye "Miss Caroline" Fiddlesticks 6x6
brad:  My Mind's Eye "Stella and Rose" Hattie Happy
ink:  Stampin' Up!

Chalk it up!  I hope to see you at Little Tangles :)
