Memorial Day

I hope everyone gets the chance to take some time out today to remember those Men and Women who have given so much of theirselves for our freedom and what we have .  May God bring Peace to those families who have lost their family members recently , praying for that day when they can all come home.

This card is going to my brother and it will be late.... I can't seem to keep up with things here lately, but that will change soon.

Stampscapes stamped image, sponged the background with bundled sage distress inks for the grassy area and Colorbox-robins egg for the sky.
Distress inks were used for all the coloring too, peeled paint for the trees and bushes, dried marigold for the roof, and tea dye for the house, I mixed a little of the marigold and tea dye for the door and shading. 
All of that is framed using the Spellbinders Curved Rectangles.  The paper is from G.C.D. studio's loverly collection, tore the paper to stamp the sentiment from Hero Arts.
The buttons were found at a flea market and I added floss to them.

Hope you are all enjoying a lovely weekend, we are getting our hot summer weather.  We are having one of my husbands co-workers over for a little cook out before they both have to work tonight.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a safe day :)
