Friday Challenge ...use chipboard

Well today's challenge ( yep, I did say today...how's that for being on time???) at notimetostamp
is to use chipboard on your card. I had these little ditties from Michael's $1 like one dollar makes you holler bin and decided, what a stroke of luck to get to use them. I don't normally go with chipboard but hey I need to cooperate once in awhile so I played. Just used some as you can see black and white polka dotted paper, along with some polka dotted ribbon, a circle Nestie, some flower chips, and a little phrase from Flourishes tag a line and there you have it. Done in a snap.

So today is eat fish day since it's Good Friday and of course that's no big to do as I happen to like a good fish dinner. I picked up some walleye and plan a feast for my din-din tonight. Perhaps I'll even have a glass of Pinot Grigio along with it since fish calls for a good white wine. Hopefully I won't get sloshed and have to go to bed right after dinner but I will try and restrain myself. Happy Easter to you all and I hope the hoppity guy brings you tons of chocolate eggs and bunnies etc. See you next week.

What a chipboard on the dot fine card! Thanks for this timely visual reminder to switch to black on white dot ribbon for lighter spring coloration when polka dotting is the card scheme. You and your card are appreciated! Fish day for us was spent sharing a celebration of life memorial after which anyone who wished could join family at the decedant's fav eatery menu item, fish sand combo. Some husky delicious fish portions graced our sandwiches. Easter Blessings!
