Woohoo! I am so excited to have won. Thanks, Lori. I haven't used chalks in a long time. I used to use them with my brass embossing templates, but now I mostly use inks and markers.

I just used chalks to age my St. Patrick's day cards. A little darker color than his green hat. A little blush on his cheeks. I don't normally use them, guess I need to start ... Thank you for the day to file!

Congrats Kelly!

Thanks for the cute pinwheels Lori!

I almost always chalk the edges of my cut pieces. I also have chalked the negative parts of some flower files, using them like stencils.

I have never used chalks before but I've been wanting to try it. I picked up a couple at Joann's $1 bin but haven't yet had a chance to try them out. Would so love to have a set with the colors in your gift pack. Thanks so much for giving us the chance to win!! :-)

Good to have you back again. Love the pinwheel file. Haen't used chalks for awhile but usually use them to chalk around paper piecing

Lisa R. March 19, 2011 at 11:55 PM  

Love the pinwheels. Glad your back. yes i have chalked a few times, just on cards. Need to do more chalking don't I? I'm a follower =) Thanks for sharing. joy4umetoo@hotmail.com

What a fun freebie! We have enough wind this week that pinwheels are the right idea.
I bought some chalk, but I didn't use it for anything other than the edges of some die cuts, and the veins of some cutter leaves. I guess I prefer the intensity of ink for that. I wasn't sure the chalk would stay put, either, long term. Maybe it's time to play with chalk a little more.

patti March 20, 2011 at 6:19 AM  

Thank you for the pinwheels! I have never chalked but would like to try!!! pjseagers at hoymail dot com

Barbara March 20, 2011 at 8:19 AM  

I've chalked recipe cards, teacher's gifts I made for my grandson last year, and many other projects. I've gone over the edge with chalkboard paint, so yes, chalk is here to stay in my house, lol!
