Chalks Away revisited

I've really been a bad blogge recently and it seems I've managed to accumulate a few crafty things that I've not got round to uploading on here.  I've also been really bad at getting around to my blogmates to see what they've been up to - so I apologise for that and will try to do better.....

Anyway, first up on my "catching up" list is the second card I made a few weeks back for Nat's   "Chalkboard" themed challenge over on the Daring Cardmakaers BLOG. 
In the end I went with the flowery number for my example on the blog, so here's the other one I made

 The problem with not keeping up to date with blogging the things I make is that I completely forget what things I used! 
That's my excuse for not being able to say which papers these are....
I think they may be Echo Park and maybe a few pieces of MME in there too
The blackboard and the test were all done in Paint Shop Pro using a free downloadable chalkboard background I found  on the web HERE, and various fonts I already had plus a few new fabulous freebie new ones from DaFont
The birthday cake is made using a Craft Robo template that I made a while back and has proved quite useful! 
The frame for the chalkboard is also a Robo template - I was trying to make it look like one of those  blackboards with wooden frames that you often see in cafes

That's it for this time - I'm off to hunt out more things I missed blogging!  Have a good day

I thought I'd left a comment on this a while ago, but obviously not - I don't know about you being a bad blogger, I've been a bad commenter recently - having a catch up now and glad I came to visit this lovely card x
