TAWS: I beLONG with U!

It's my day to post over at The Alley Way Stamps (TAWS).  Two of this month's new releases are fun circus-themed sets.  I decided to use the giraffe for an anniversary card!!??  I think it works!!

I beLONG with U

I am  hoping you can tell that the embossing folder (which is a cheap Hobby Lobby brand folder) is supposed to be a circus cage and that the big buttons are the wheels.  Of course, if I am feeling the need to explain this to you, it's probably not as obvious as I might hope!!

The giraffe comes from TAWS Party Animals along with the word "long".  One of the fun things about their stamps is that they have a few main word sets, then the themed sets come with add-in words that are appropriate - in this case the word "long".  So I pulled the other words from other sets, tucked in "long" and had my anniversary sentiment.

  • Stamps: The Alley Way Stamps Party Animal, Jibber Jabber (be), Chatterbox (with), Alphabet Soup (I and U)
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Kiwi Kiss (long retired), Bermuda Bay (retired)
  • Ink: Memento black and copics
  • Accessories: Hobby Lobby embossing folder, Prima wood buttons, heart punch, Stampin' Up Kiwi Kiss ribbon
