It's all Black & White

Hello Everybody!

I am so proud to announce that I am the guest designer for City Crafters Challenge Blog. What a joy to be guest for such a talented team! Their theme for this week is Black & White with a touch of gold. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

I learned this technique from Make it Monday blog. It is called two toned
stamping and it is remarkably easy. click here for the link for a how-to

Guest Designer for
City Crafter Challenge Blog:
Challenge week: #313~Black and White
The background happy birthday stamp serves as just that, a background.
while the '29 again' sentiment steals the show.
29 again! I thought this would be a perfect birthday card sentiment for all my
40+ friends and family.
I added my touch of gold using the confetti that is 'blown' out of the horn. 
My son had his first piano recital tonight. He did great for having 'lots of jigjaws' (a new word I learned today meaning 'jitters'). Of course mom forgot a dish-to-pass AND more importantly his music book. UGH! One of these days I will get it completely right. Right?

All that aside I do encourage you to try the two toned stamping technique. I like it because it packs a punch for very little work. Check out their blog and you will be amazed how easy this is to achieve. 

So that is it for me! I want to give a huge thank you to City Crafter Challenge Blog for having me this week as your guest. I am truly touched.

And thank you so much for stopping by my little byte of the internet. If you aren't already a follower I invite you to consider it. I share designs, techniques, and thoughts about well.... whatever is on my mind. So, join me as we all embark on our crafting journey together at TheGrandStampede. Until next time, take care everyone.

All the best,
