You look lovely today home decor made using the Chalkboard Fonts cartridge.

Hello, friends!

I hope you are all having a lovely week so far. Summer has arrived here in Big D and it is miserable! We have even hit the triple digits. Why can't I have a summer home in Canada?

Today's project is one that I promised you last week made using the Chalkboard Fonts cartridge. I figured other bloggers might do the obvious chalkboard project, so I wanted to do something else. Besides, I had this really great chevron patterned canvas (from the Canvas Art Workshop on the Go Kit) that I have been itching to use. I love the diversity of the fonts on this cartridge and had a lot of fun designing this! This will probably go in my entry way, so people can see it when they come into my home and feel good about themselves!
