TAWS New Release Blog Hop

It's one of the special days of the month...the new release blog hop for The Alley Way Stamps (TAWS)!!

I am definitely hopping today...

Ribbit Ribbitt

Check out that face.  He could be angry, or surprise or confused.  I'm not sure how I am going to use this - probably for some nasty "you're not really old" birthday card!!  The frog comes from a new set called Kid 'n Caboodle which is the same type of set as Priceless Joy.

Another new set this month is called Trees Company - trees and birds...could it get any better??  I used a few of the "pieces" to put together this little scene. 

Bird with a Pear
The colors on both cards come from Papertrey Ink: 
Aqua Mist, Limeade Ice, Summer Sunrise and Kraft.

I used the third new set on Monday's sneak peek post - this set includes my favorite little turkey BIGGED!  I love him so much!!

Kim both cards are lovely. I think the frog looks grumpy. Love what you have done with his eyes too. I love the bit of string on the birdie card - it just 'ties' everything together well!
