See the new sparkly banner? I just wanted to try it on for size. I don't particularly like it and want it gone, but can't get it remove it!!! What's up with that?!? Does anyone out there have any idea? I am really frustrated!

This is for today's CC. I just LOVE these colors together! Thanks Em!I used an image from the City of David set from my friend Lauren. I colored the structures with Sahara Sand, then used a gold metallic CM pen for the roof tops to give them some shine, I then went over them with a Sakura sparkle pen. The sand - yep, real sand, was given to me by one of my best buds, Cindy. It is called Malibu Beach is you can find it online here. It is super cool stuff and dries quickly (which is good for messy Marvin's like myself). Thanks for looking!

Additional Info
Stamps: City of David
Paper: basic black, sahara sand, very vanilla, GPwhite
Ink: stazon
Accessories: Muddpuddles Malibu Beach sand, ribbon, gemstone brad, sakura gel pen, gold CM metallic pen, swiss dots CB folder

The sand adds interesting texture.

I have two awards to share with you. I am going to combine them, and give them to some fellow bloggers...

The first award is a Kreative Blogger award that I recieved from two fellow bloggers: SarahK at Encouraging Impressions, and my good bud Joan Ervin at Stamping with a Passion. They both gave me this award within a couple of days of each other. Thank you Sarah, for your kind comments and for selecting me to recieve this award. Thank you Joan for sharing your awesome talent and participating in the Double Dare Challenges.

The second award was recieved from my friend Tammi at tjsmemories. Tammi passed along the "Your Blog Rocks & Your the Best Blogging Buddy" award. Thank you Tammi. If you haven't visited Tammi's blog, you should. She is a SUPER-FANTASTIC scrapbooker. I just love looking at her pages.

Now to pass these fabulous awards on to some fellow bloggers... I decided to pass it along to all who read this.. I see that these have been around the blog-o-sphere a couple of times in my search to nominate folks who haven't gotten it.. So, thanks for the awards, and if you are reading this, consider yourself nominated..(that includes you Mom.. even though you don't have a blog - my passion for crafting is ALL your fault!)..


I made this for the Featured Stamper today.. Flowergal36 has a super gallery is always to leave kind comments. I cased her card called Pumkin Spice Coffee. I changed the stamps and colors, but kept the cool layout. Silly Duck bought these French Hens hoping to make some money from their fancy feathers. Only one problem... Duck doesn't speak French... so he is giving these fabulous chicks away for free! Poor Duck!
Thanks for looking!
