Here is a card I made recently for my Dad's 80th birthday. Easy peasy!!
and my Mom's 77th birthday:
I love the chalkboard stamp from Our Daily Bread. It is a fabulous stamp but I had quite a time finding a good ink pad. All of mine are old and need to be replaced or refreshed with ink. But I finally got a good impression. It also helps to check out the company website and blog to see if they advise a certain ink. I also found that their stamps require a little conditioning before stamping. ;-)
Happy Card Making to you!
