I live in Central Wisconsin, close to the Wisconsin River and the Wisconsin Dells.  We love to take the tour in the Dells of the Upper part of the river there.  They often talk about the Lumber Jacks who worked the rivers to get the logs down.  There are several bends where the river narrow and many men lost their lives.  Our area was known for paper mills on the river.

This stamp set is great!  I just wanted to use the outlined image instead of making him two toned or colored in and thought our new chalkboard paper and ink would be a great match!  Who doesn't love a PINK LUMBERJACK!?!? 

Stampin' Up!'s new Chalkboard Paper is super awesome!  You can see the Chalkboard Paper to the right and the black paper to the left.  I used the Rose Coral ColorBox Chalk Ink for my Lumber Jack.  Ooohhh  lalala!

The card is a 3x3 card, so I use 12x12 paper and cut it in half.  Then I cut each half at the 3, 6, 9 marks so I get 6 cards out of each sheet!  Here you can see I stamped the Timber saying on the inside :)  Later you can see I added the tree slice with the heart in it as a background too.

   For a few added details, I threaded the Basic Black 1/8in" Taffeta Ribbon through the Subtle Designer Button.  The red glimmer paper adds just enough sparkle too!
