We are still showing some great Behind The Alley Way peeks for Feb release.. you don't want to miss this.. :) 
so for my project I used the new Background Basics stamp set.. it has this fun "road" stamp on it that I thought would be perfect for this card. I also used the Priceless Joy car and sentiment for this card..

one of my favorite things to do is to make little scenes... and I used the Martha Stewart shredding scissors for my grass.. they make it so fun and it looks amazing! :) I hope you all are enjoying this sneak peak of the new releases.. :) don't forget to check back on the TAWS blog each day for the next 4 days for your chance to win..and see what the other DT girls have created..

so inspiring!!

I have to tell you all I was so inspired by Barbs photos that she has taken.. she truly is an amazing photographer.. I just adore the bird on a wire.. and wanted to take inspiration from it!
how I got my inspiration:
bird on a wire {for me it was 3}
clouds in the background
a bird being itself
the dark cloud behind the bird reminded me of a rolling hill...

I used the stamp sets Snow Much Fun from my new line at The Alley Way Stamps.. for my birdies
It's been so nice to be back playing.. I have been sick, and will be happy to get back in the swing of things..

I just love paper piecing these little guys... one thing I love.. wait LOVE about acrylic stamps is the flexible way you can make them move.. like my word zoom... I just bent the stamp a bit..

Isn't this such a "happy" card.. pun intended..hehe.. I just love how this turned out! The bright fun colors and then the Birthday popped out at you.. just makes me happy! This card is made using the Jibber Jabber set.. and let me tell you that set is full of just that.. jabber.. but good jabber!

Little Lady... and a freebie

Did someone say FREEBIE!!!.....YES! I did.. So the first Wednesday of each month The Alley Way Stamps are going to have a freebie. Now this will be either a shaped card template, digital stamp and sentiment or both.. these will be available here on the blog and be placed under the freebies section! :) So today is one of those freebie day's.
I have this adorable shaped card template that is a onesie. Not only is the card template for free, but the ladybug and a sentiment too :) I paper pieced her and added some stitching lines, and ribbon.
This next card is from our Kitchen Gadgets set... This set is so much fun to play with, one of my favorite things is you can choose to add the smiley faces or leave them off. :)
I hope you have joined us for the Grand Opening of TAWS!
We are giving away some free stamps!! :)

It's HERE!!!!

It's HERE!!! I can't believe it.. the day is finally here! The Alley Way Stamps is now OPEN!! WOOHOO! I am in a bit of shock. This has been a dream for a very long time. I am so excited that I get to share it with all of you. I hope you will stop by the blog, have a look around and say Hi!
Here is my first creation using MY new stamps!! :) I can't believe it!
This is from the new stamp set "Snow Much Fun".. what I love about it.. you get to create your own snow person the way you want it to look. :)
I paper pieced my little snowman, used the snow squiggles, to add the effect of snow.. I also used some puffy paint around the bottom, and dotted it too.. I placed glassy accents on the heart and his nose. I chose this sentiment, because I think it is perfect for the Jan cold months here in Utah! :)
I hope you all had a wonderful new year! I sure did.. Thanks for such an amazing blog year.. here is to 2012..

Wee Memories
