Friday Fun # 41 on Saturday and the Dog Ate My Homework (well not exactly...)

I know I am a day late with my challenge post, but there has been some drama in my household this week. It's all ok now but it started on Thursday with my cat, Cookie getting out. I didn't think that was a big deal until we came home from the beach and she had a huge hole in her front leg. I immediately rushed her up to the veterinarian's office and she had to stay over night and get surgery and antibiotics. Here is a picture of her at the office- it looks like she's in jail. Silly cat.
She's ok now after a HUGE vet bill. At least I got some entertainment out of the ordeal- she walked like she was drunk until the anesthesia completely wore off. It was funny.
While Cookie was at the vet getting patched up my Dad's dog decided to go after my dog. Dixie can hold her own- she is THREE times the size of my Dad's dog but since we already had pet rushed to the vet with an emergency I wasn't about to let another one get hurt so I put myself between them. The dogs are fine however I got bit twice and have some scratches and bruises. With all that going on, I really didn't feel up to stamping until this morning. But I'm back now and have something to show you!
This week's Friday Fun challenge was again hosted by me and this is the challenge:
If it’s too hot to be creative or you just haven’t had much time to stamp- here’s a challenge to jump start you: Create a card using any Technique from the SCS Resources/Tutorial Page here:
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/ The catch? You have to use a technique that you have NEVER tried before. Have fun!
I decided to try the Chalkboard Technique. It has been so long since I used my chalks that I had to hunt for them. It was definitely worth the trouble though- here is my card:

Stamps: Unity Gratitude = Joy and butterfly from The Simple Life
Paper: Kraft, Certainly Celery; PTI Plum Pudding and Basic Grey Euphoria DP
Ink: PTI Snow White and Plum Pudding
Accessories: Nestabilities Label Dies, Celery Brads, Plum Pudding Ribbon, Chalks, Dimensionals

We would love for you to play along, just use Keyword FFC41 when uploading to Splitcoast or link your project here. Be sure to check out the Other Friday Fun Girls for more inspiration:
