Hello Junkies, 

Did you get a chance to hop along yesterday with the design team while they showed off the new stamps for the Technique Junkies May release?  If not, you can still catch it and take advantage of the 15% off any of the stamps from the new release until May 8.  Also, Pat is offering a 15% discount on the Chameleon Color Tone Pencils.  (I used them to color the roses on this card).  

It soon will be mother's day and while my mother is no longer living, there is a lovely lady who was my mother's dear friend and like a second mom to me. When I saw this Long Stemmed Rose stamp in the April Release, I knew I wanted to use it to create a card for her.  

I made 2 masks of the rose so I could stamp multiple roses and place them one in front of the other.  After stamping them, I colored them with Chameleon Color Tone Pencils,  (15% discount but only until May 8).  The background was sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  

The sentiment is another stamp from the April Release "Happy Mother's Day"  which I stamped in a light gray ink in order to let the roses stand out.  

If you'd like to purchase any stamps from Technique Junkies (except for the May Release Stamps, already discounted stamps and Distress Oxide Inks) and would like a little discount on your order, please use my code TJ10Cheri at check out.  

Have you visited the Technique Junkies FaceBook Page yet?  Check it out and join in on the fun. 

And we also have a monthly technique challenge going.  You have until May 14th to join in on this month's challenge.  There's a $25.00 GC to the Technique Junkies store for a lucky winner who enters and who's name is drawn.  The winner will be announced on May 14th.  A new technique challenge will begin on May 15.  

Have a super crafty week, my friends.
