Patriotic Farmhouse...

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
The Weekend is almost here! YAY!!!

 I wanted to share a "Sort of" Patriotic card I made
to send to my son--

As most of you know, I have a son in the Marines and I like
to send him cards - just to let him know I'm thinking of him -
We talk on the phone weekly when he can, but I like to
just pop cards in the mail for him and I know he 
appreciates getting them from me with just sweet
little reminders of how proud I am of him!

So I made this card to send him and to make it for
the SumMore Fun Stamps Challenge that's still going on -

I used a Star Stencil for my background and some Distress
Oxide inks in Red Brick & Mermaid Lagoon
Then I die cut it out with a Stitched Rectangle die
I added some Red Striped Washi tape and set it aside -

Then I stamped the Victorine Originals
Farmhouse Stamp on a piece of white cardstock with some 
Stampin' Up Creamy Caramel ink
I die cut it out with a Stitched Oval die
and thought the card needed a little sentiment - 

So I took another piece of White Cardstock
and used some of the Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink
and blended it until I thought it looked good -
Then I die cut a Stitched Banner die out of that colored paper
then took the (Hello) Stamp from the Flourshing Thoughts 
Raisin Boat Stamp set to give it that final touch I thought it needed -

And now it's in the mail to my Handsome Son! :)

 I also wanted to remind YOU

Red, white, and blue + a barn certainly says Americana! He'll love it, and be happy that you're thinking of him! I love that rustic barn!

What a beautiful card Theresa! And God bless your son! Have you ever thought about possibly getting a couple crafty friends together to do a card drive to send to your son and his troop? I think this would be such a beautiful thing and if you ever decide to do it, count me in!
Have a great weekend!
