Blog Hopping with The Alley Way Stamps

It's blog hop time for The Alley Way Stamps  (TAWS) - there are fun new stamps - if you follow the TAWS blog there have been sneak peeks the last three days (I did one yesterday!).  Today, when you hop, you get to see all of the new stamps!

If you started with my blog, be sure to head back to the beginning at The Alley Way Stamps.

TAWS is releasing a wonderful new background stamp.  Woodgrain is so in - and it works for so much.  On sneak peek day, you saw the new Love Knots woodgrain done in pinks and there was a video tutorial on doing it in bold blended colors.  I still need Christmas cards - so here is Love Knots used slightly differently.

Hope and Peace

{This card was made with love and prayers 
for a wonderful family dealing with chemo 
for their 8-year old for the fourth time.  
They get a little break in December, but it's not over.}

Then...a very different stamp style...Doodle Frames...

Hello, Love You

Aren't these fun???  I'm a clean and simple card maker and these are perfect!  You could plop one of these fun frames in the middle of a card and they are each interesting enough to totally make the card!!

Next on the hop is Lyndal

The woodgrain is fab with the love knot and your birdie is so cute. Love the little scattering of gems and snowflakes. The doodled labels make a fun but superbly CAS card. x
