Blog Hopping with The Alley Way Stamps

I hope you are having fun on our blog hop for the new release at The Alley Way Stamps.  If you started at my blog, you really should start back at the beginning to see all the amazing creations - the charming little lion, the big top, the peanuts - you'll be smiling before you'e done!!


This release at The Alley Way Stamps is such a fun mix - by this point in our blog hop you have seen wonderful bright, fun and colorful cards.  Yesterday I made a cheerful little clown card.  But today I wanted to show you the soft side of TAWS - a soft and sweet baby shower card using Cover Ups.

Baby Love

I used this week's sketch from retrosketches.  I loved the way it let me use the wood image.  It's the perfect size to wrap the little Hershey's Treasures candy bars but I wanted to showcase it with its little heart.


The Cover Ups set is full of a variety of images - from pregnant ladies to cows (hmm...), from Halloween to Easter...such a useful set and all such cute little images.  There are a variety of fun candy wrappers too!

Next on your hop is the fabulous Lyndal!
