We're celebrating May Day weekend, May 1-3rd, by spotlighting our readers. We'll showcase reader cards and projects all weekend long. Think of it as a great big show -n- tell event to thank you, our readers, for your support and participation for the past two years. Your submissions will be published at Caardvarks!
If you'd like to be included in our mega-posting Reader Weekend, please email us with a card, project, or unique technique idea. If you'd like to create something new for the event, that rocks, but it's not necessary. We'll choose gobs of items to highlight throughout the weekend.
* Photos should be between 100 - 200kb and photographed well
* Provide a brief description and/or directions for creating your item
* Provide a link to your blog, website or gallery, and provide your name
Be sure to check back all weekend long for tons of eye candy. See you there!

Did you start at the beginning? If not, click back and visit all the DT blogs in order and leave comments at each one to be eligible to win a my Stamp BOX set of your choice!
Today I am featuring the Neighborhoods set of stamps from my Stamp Box. This set has four distinct skylines and three fun sentiments to add to your projects. Take a look at two!
I had such a good time coloring and blending with Gamsol for this farm scene. I also used some rustic papers from Daisy D's French Market collection and some jute for texture. I can almost smell the fresh air and homemade pie!
And now for something totally opposite, here's a cityscape complete with grunge and sparkle. I used the skyscraper city stamp and grunged it up with Prismacolor pencils once again. (Can you tell that it's my new favorite thing? Thanks, Jen!) Even through all the grunge, the big city never fails to delight with all its sparkle and glitter. I added silver gel pen to some of the buildings and even some Stickles in the sky. Even the background paper and ribbon are sparkly silver.
I hope you give this stamp set a try. It's one of my favorites!
Don't forget! You must go back to the my Stamp BOX blog when you are finished and leave a comment with your first name, last initial and your location in a comment and tell us what your favourite project of the evening was!
Now check out what Lara has in store for you in our blog hop. Enjoy all the creativity!
Remember to stop back tonight at 8 PM Eastern for the my Stamp BOX blog hop. See you then!
