"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11


EASY DOES IT / TAWS October New Release Hop!

HELLO and welcome to The Alley Way Stamps October New Release Blog Hop!!! Are you excited? I am... someone is going to WIN the new release & it could be YOU! I used my favorite set from this release, Bacon Bits, for my hop card. Part of the sentiment is from Lemon Squeezy, and the rest I wrote by hand. I thought it would be fun to paper piece the yolk.

One lucky commentor from the hop is going to win ALL 3 sets.... so make sure you hop along! For complete details, check out the TAWS blog. You can click on the thumbnails below to hop through the DT blogs.


Have fun hopping!

HO-HO-HO / TAWS October FWP...

Happy Monday! It's time for the New Release Hop over at The Alley Way Stamps, but first I'm showing off a card made with one of the new sets, combined with this months Free-With-Purchase set, Christmas Express! Isn't it adorable? I love anything with trains and I can tell this is going to be so versatile!

Be sure to check out my next post for my TAWS hop card!

NORTH POLE / TAWS Sneak Peeks Day Three...

It's day three of the Sneak Peeks, I wish I had been able to post this sooner! This new set, Toy Land is ADORABLE!!! I focused on just one image for this card, and paper pieced the sign.

Love & hugs,

BACON / RS #83 & TAWS Sneak Peek Day Two...

Wow - nothing like bacon to get your attention! This card is using the latest RetroSketch and a new set from The Alley Way Stamps, Bacon Bits.

When I was a kid, we would go to Shoney's occasionally on the weekend for their breakfast bar, it was so embarrassing. Dad and my brother Aaron would pile a plate 4 or 5 inches high with nothing but bacon. The last piece always sparked a fight, in public or at home. Bacon was the first thing my baby brother learned to cook in the microwave.... I think he was 6. As you can tell bacon has always been a big deal! Love this new set!

Big hugs,



Here's a recent page of Alex and Maisie Grace. Alex likes to dress up sometimes and on this day he was a play-dough playing cowboy! I loved the colors and the little hats in this digital kit by Ya Yeah Designs, Best Friends. I used a fun template from the Crazy & Messy pack by Mye De Leon.

Big hugs,


HAPPY BIRTHDAY NANA / Simple Scrapper & P&Co...

Here's a digital scrap page I made a couple weeks ago using a photo from my Mom's birthday in November. I thought it was so sweet, all the grandkids around her! I used Simple Scrapper's Sept. 13 template, single #3. the kit is gorgeous, Indian Summer by Gennifer Bursett.

Love & hugs,


Hey there - sharing my card for A Day For Daisies Take Two of the newest Release! How ADORABLE is this cutie??? This is Birthday Frog... hit hat is the BOMB! I printed him on white paper, and then erased all of him except his hat, which I printed in the patterned paper so I could piece it. I hand wrote the sentiment.


RIVER / DB - "Jewels"...

Hello! I'm sitting down for the evening, watching Haven on SyFy (LOVE it!) and posting a few things. We started a new challenge today over at the Dilly Beans Challenge blog... add jewels/glitter. I used this sweet image, River Framed. I love her sweet expression. I used rhinestones for my jewels in the centers of the flowers. For added interest, I used a black pen to add a line to the inside of the patterned paper flag and scallop.

Thanks for stopping by!

HELLO / CQC #208...

Here's my card for this week's colourQ - and I used a touch of my ALL-TIME favorite color, Bermuda Bay! I colored the rhinestones to match using Copics. This gorgeous stamp set is from The Alley Way Stamps - Calypso - and the little teeny tiny sentiment is from Cover-Ups!

Big hugs!


Oh, I remember now where I've been - the kids were sick all last week, and then I wasn't feeling so hot the last couple days of the week. This card is for the current RetroSketch. I made the patterned paper, kinda.... I had printed the black and white digital paper and had some scraps left over and used Copics to add the colors. The spider web and body are from the set Ghoul-Friend by The Alley Way Stamps.

Love & hugs,
