OWH Blog Hop

How’s Hoppin’? Welcome to the Art Impressions page! We’re glad you could join us!  We participated in OWH’s last blog hop and are excited to join once again.

Yesterday, one of our employees heard word of a friend who died in Afghanistan on Thursday. He was 23 and coming home in three weeks to be married to his beautiful bride. On this Memorial weekend, we ask that you pray for his family and fiancé. May they have peace and comfort during this tragic time.

We are very passionate about our support for those who are serving for us. It's our family, our friends, that are laying their life on the line. We appreciate this wonderful organization that brings troops and their families a little closer together, although they might be worlds apart.
Ok, let’s get started with the goodies! With any $30 purchase this weekend at ArtImpressions.com, you will receive our  “Nap for That” text FREE. For more details, check out our post below from Friday, May 25.
This tutorial is from one of our fabulous DTs: Hi, this is Maria with a quick and easy way to make a pop-up inside your card. This is a great way to add a little fun inside your card. I used OWH Sketch #21 with the new Art Impressions Lazy Boy Stamp. The outside of the card is a traditional A2 card following the sketch guidelines. For the pop-up addition, the steps and instructions are on the pictures below. **Just a note: the pop-up attachment can be anything that is flat. In my case I cut a sentiment from a die cut machine.
Thank you for stopping by! For more free stuff from Ai, check out our challenge blog on Thursdays! This week is Anything Medical, you can check it out above on the "Current Challenge" link.

Happy Stamping!

  43. So very sorry to hear of the friend's death. What a Memorial Day for his fiancee and family. :-( My heart goes out to them and to everyone who's lost a friend or loved one in our wars.

    That said, this card is magnificent. If only my father were alive. He could have been the model, except he usually had a jar of peanuts in his hand. Thank you for participating in the blog hop and for your continued support of our troops.
