Do You Stack Up? Challenge #34

Hello everyone.  Today is Thursday and the beginning of a new challenge at Do You Stack Up?

This week's Sponsors:

Digi Darla
One Month's Membership in our Digital Stamp Club

Stitchy Bear
$10 Gift Voucher for Stitchy Stamps, Panda Bear Designs and Dezina World

Stamping Boutique
Winner’s Choice of 5 Digis
The image I used this week is from The Stamping Boutique and it is called 'Prince Lonnie Latte'.
He makes a great summer card:
Just to get out of the Designer paper rut, I decided to make my own background using a resist technique with some flame stamps and Ranger Distress inks.  First I sponged on a yellow(I've forgotten the name at the moment) ink and then orange(Marmalade) over part of the yellow.  Then I Clear embossed the flame stamps. I sponged more orange and then red(Fired Brick) before ironing off the embossing.  Then more sponging of the red & burgundy inks. Can you tell I love sponging?!
Boy, Lonnie is really in the heat! Lonnie doesn't get out much to grill (that's why he is so pale) so he has done a terrible job and burned his burger.  And he is in a pissy mood so he is waving away his beloved latte.  His wife is probably yelling at him to drink his latte so she can take over the grilling!  I know I would be!!
Gee, such a happy story I've dreamed up!  LOL

This is going to be the last challenge I am involved in as a member of DYSU's DT.  My son has met the love of his live this summer and he is going to get married before the end of the year. THIS year! Needless to say, I'm going to be busy.

Anyway, in light of all the activity that is starting to take place in trying to plan and arrange for this wedding, I am stepping down from my DT position. I'm going to miss it terribly and especially all the wonderful ladies on the team!!  
*okay, I'm getting misty*

I will still be making cards now and then, as that keeps me sane!

Thanks for coming by and please look at the rest of the Design Team's contributions here.
