Speech Bubble Hello!

Hello Crafty Friends!  It's Friday once again!  It's been a busy week and this weekend looks to be busy too!  :>  Today I am popping in with a card for Moxie's Fab World's Speech Bubble Challenge!  I was quite excited when I saw this challenge as I have two perfect stamps by Hero Arts for this and had yet to ink them.  You know how it is you have to have them you get them and than have no clue what to do with them!  I was determined that they see ink!



I inked the conversation background stamp by Hero Arts with wet cement ink (by HA) making sure to stamp as well as I could, you know what I mean I used my elbow!  Sometimes I don't stamp that straight onto a card with a background stamp so I cheated I stamped it on cardstock and trimed it and adhered it to the white card.  Stamped the Hello bubble stamp by Hero Arts with Red Royal ink by HA too.  I used patterned paper from My Mind's Eye's Lost and Found 3 Ruby collection.

Happy to share that my speech on Tuesday went well!  I was nervous but I may slightly enjoy public speaking!  I shared about my passion for creativity (at an inner city hs) my journey and how putting yourself out there is scary but you never know unless you do try!  I encouraged them to follow there passion and work at it!  :>  Than over lunch I lead a card class, we did chalkboard cards and they really did love it.  Funny story after they were all done picking out which stamps they wanted to use and embossing I told them the next step  is to smudge this white ink into the card!  They looked at me in horror!  I showed them my card and this is what makes it really look chalkboard!  They thought I was crazy and not one of them did it. :>

This week Ariel is person of the week at school!  Today she shares with the class something about herself so she is leading a craft!  Each child does different things and this is the first time a child has done a craft!  Ariel has two teachers and Mrs B shared with her how she loves art but it's on Wednesdays so she was excited that Ariel was doing a craft on the day she was teaching!  So sweet!  I so wanted to go and watch her speak and do this but I thought it would be best for her to do this herself.  If I was there she may have let me do it but I want her to!  She can be a bit shy and I think this is a good opportunity for her!  I can't wait till she comes home to hear all about it!  This is the craft we came up with, cheap and not too messy but so cute:

That's it for me!  Tonight I am getting my baby headband game on as I have a baby shower this weekend!  :>

I love your speech bubble card Anita, great colour combo! I am laughing at the kids not wanting to do the chalkboard ink smudging lol. Guess they are all going to grow up to be Type As. ;-)

Lovely card Anita. Glad your speech went well. And I'm sure Ariel will do well.

I love how you did your card. Congratulations to both you and Ariel for getting up in front of people and sharing something you love. Both of you do so well on the TV.
One question?? Do the school kids even have chalkboards/blackboards any more or do they just use the white boards nowadays.
The kids reaction was priceless.

I have always loved public speaking - a captive audience! Pretty funny for a shy girl, but who knows? So proud to hear that you are putting yourself out there, Anita, and sharing your heart, as you always do. Love this card - I've yet to ink mine up. Thanks for sharing.
