chalkboard text adventure

After I posted Wednesday that I can only spend so much time in bed unless I'm really, really sick?  Thursday I spent all day in bed, of course.  I had enough energy to walk 20 steps to the bathroom a few times, but I had to talk myself into it.  bleah.  Meanwhile my amazing husband, while recovering from bronchitis with bronchial spasms, made soup for dinner twice because that's all I wanted.  I tend to be fairly high energy (for an old person), and I miss my energy when it goes off like that.

Today I was working on a chalkboard technique card for Merry Monday, featuring text for Jingle Belles, because text and chalkboard just belong together, don't they?  The dog, who is also old, got up, meaning it was time to let her out, and while I was upstairs, the laundry needed to be folded, the breakfast dishes had to be dealt with and the dishwasher needed to be emptied.  Suddenly I remembered that it's half an hour till the Merry Monday link-up closes, so this card is fairly simple:
stamp set - Merry Little Christmas (retired); ink - Versamark, Whisper White craft; card stock - Basic Black, Whisper White, Cucumber Crush, Winter Wonderland designer vellum (retired)

Since chalkboard technique includes embossing, I'd like to link up at Holly Jolly Christmas, too.  But since I know I won't have enough Christmas cards by making one for every three challenges, I'm hoping to have another (or two) later this week.

Lovely creation. I must do the chalkboard embossing technique again soon (thanks for the reminder of how nice this looks, I used to do it quite a lot)
Thanks for joining us at Holly Jolly for our Embossing challenge. Hope to see you again. Good Luck.
