  It is getting close to 4th of July.  We have a BIG family get together with friends.  Since we live in the country, we get to have a lot of fireworks.  The men have made cannons to shoot the fireworks out of.  They line them up and light several at a time.  It takes 2-3 men to keep the fireworks going. There is a lot of squealing and ahhhhh-ing!

This week Wendy at Repeat Impressions asked us to do a project with the stamp LAND OF THE FREE.   Each week Wendy will select one stamp to showcase; the Design Team will share some ideas of what you can create with it and offer the featured stamp to their blog readers at 50% OffClick Here to get the 50% off.  This exclusive offer will not be shown on Repeat Impression's website - only on the blogThe House that Stamps BuiltIn order to get the 50% off code you will need to go to the blog.

I used "Land of the Free" and "It's Time To Party" stamps for our invitation to the 4th of July party.

Here is a card I made using the same stamp:

 The little stars were punched out, I curled small gauge wire around a pen, slipped it off then taped the stars to the end of the wire and taped the wire to the back of the image.

Now take a look at these designers and what they have created, then order the stamp at a 50% discount from June 21 to 26th only.

Sorry i'm late with commenting on this post. I've been so behind with my blog reading lately. But when I first saw your projects for this stamp, I was very impressed. I love how you made the stars pop up. These all look so fabulous!
