Stamp of the Week for Memorial Day.

I hope everyone is remembering those in the military that have given their lives to allow us to live in the greatest country in the world.

Our family celebrated with another family from Greece.  It was a typical Texas Bar-b-que with home made peach ice cream.  My grand kids ask every time they come over if I'll make the ice cream for them.  I hope in the years to come they think back on days eating their home made ice cream on our patio watching fire flies come out at dusk.

Ok, enough of that -- here is the Stamp of the Week.  I like the look of positive/negative images.  This ART DECO look is soooo popular now!  They can make very interesting cards!  Remember this one is 50% off this week only.  It is image 5702-M.  It is Repeat Impression's Far East Collection.  So here is what you do to get your 50% of this Crowned Crane Deco image: 

1.  Go to The House That Stamps Built.
     There you will find the code to get the 50% off
2.   Put that code in the "special instructions" blank at the checkout section of the online order form.

PLEASE NOTE: The discount WILL NOT appear when you place your order. Once your order is ready to be shipped Wendy WILL apply the discount and process your credit card at that time. She will also send you a follow-up email to let you know your final adjusted total.  Wendy is so organized!

Here is my card:
I used Stazon ink and clear embossing powder on the image, sponged on several different colors of blue on white cardstock then mounted this on black cardstock on top of some Making Memories black and white dotted swiss dp.  I did some masking on my sentiment.  It is "Thank You for being a friend" 2524-F.   I masked off the lower part because it fit better on the Cuttlebugged oval.  It is also stamped with black ink and embossed with clear powder.

Please check out these other designers and see what awesome projects they made!
