MDU25, MMSC25, SSCC10, SSS, SSHP5 & FBW#81

Hi all, What a busy day, but managed to get away from work, sweetly smiling at hubby, Yes he took the children and dog to the beach, I put the bird outside, bliss no noise, so got to play for a couple of hours, so wanted to have a go a chalking after Guest Design Diva Linda did a tutorial on 'How to Chalk an Image'. Got to say my pastels from my SU Kit were still wrapped as I didn't know how to use them so thank you Linda! Though must say still need to practice but fairly pleased with my first attempt.
Got hubby to take the first picture while we still had daylight as I had halloween to do with the children, wasn't till I came to load realised he has missed off my stressing! How stressing is that! So took another picture posted both as the colour changes from Purple to Blue. Managed to cover six challenges with this card named in order of finding challenges, first Magnolia Down Under Challenge#25 stressing had to be used in your project, second Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #25 as shown below:

The third, Stampin Sisters in Christ #10, to make a card that expresses your thankfulness for someone or something they have done, or that encourages someone to be thankful, my sentiment is inside, I had a go at writing it myself as I didn't have a stamp that said what I wanted to say (this is below) as you can see I need more practise in that area too, keep telling hubby I shall have to give up work, not going for it though lol!
Fourth, Flutter By Wednesday #81, to create a card with a butterfly or fairy on it, Fifth, Simon Says Challenge, All that Sparkles, so add glitter, pearls, ribbons, stickles (which I just got today), first time for this challenge. Final Challenge just discovered today thanks to Chris, went to leave a comment on her lovely projects and found this challenge Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential #5 - In so many words, to use words within your project.

Recipe: SU Cardstock Lovely Lilac, Whisper White and pastels. Sponged the edges of the cardstock on the front
My new Stickles - Purple
Kayaz handmade paper (the circles) so pleased when I found this as I don't have a cuttlebug/big kick. Yet LOL
The ribbons, embellishments out of my stash.

Many thanks for looking, have a great weekend, happy crafting and take careX:)
