Welcome to the Alota Anniversary Blog Hop!!!

Happy Friday everyone and welcome to my blog. It time to join the Alota Rubber Stamps Design Team for our Alota Anniversary Blog Hop! Now if you didn't hop onto my blog from Susan Uncles blog then you might want to hop back to Frances Byrne's blog so that you can start at the beginning of the hop. You don't want to miss anything and there is lots to see!

Here is my card designed for fthe ALOTA ANNIVERSARY 14 YEARS!!!! Whooooohooo :)

Helene is offering a 14% discount on all retail orders through August 18th using the code ALOTA14Years.
On my card I used the stamp set 1995-2009 Celebration Bugs of course I had to use my copics and my new sewing machine:) Im now addicted to sewing on my cards!!! Thank you MOM :) I love this Celebration stamp, it comes with the numbers to stamp on the balloons and you could use them on the stamp image as well. I added curling ribbon that I use on birthday presents...lol I thought it would be a perfect match for this card!!:)
Next I just had to use another Darling ALOTA Stamp that is a new release as well as the Celebration one above. This one is called Pumpkin Treat!!! To see all new Releases please visit HERE!! :)

On this card I did color the stamped image with my copics, and added some stickles. I did sewing on the cardbase, the dp layer, and the image layer as well. I love all the new Alota Stamps they are soooooo cute!!!
Your next stop is Marie Carlsson blog, have fun and thank you for joining us in this wonderful Celebration!!!!
Hugs,
Cheryl
