Week 36: SONG

Tuesday, March 19, 2013



Spring seems to be arriving rather slowly this year, but song birds seem to be appearing with little melodies to brighten our mornings as we continue to wait for the rest of the season's beauty.  This week's cue word is probably going to bring many different things to mind, especially favorite tunes!  Now here's a thought:  If you choose to go with a favorite tune, we just might be able to come close to guessing your approximate age!  Gasp!  Don't worry, we're not going to go there (...even though that might be a rather interesting game, don't you think?)!

This week, we have a new sponsor!  Introducing the fabulous Alley Way Stamps!

We're a small company from Utah that specializes in clear photopolymer stamps that are made right here in the USA! These stamps are fun, whimsy, and sometimes a little quirky. We try to keep them trendy. The sentiments will always put a smile on your face. We began in January 2012 with the release of four stamp sets and are now up to 38 sets and growing.
We at The Alley Way bring you one of a kind stamps. All of our stamps are hand created with you in mind; even our sentiments are made to go perfectly with each set. One of our favorite things to do is pick out PUNNY sentiments and the perfect stamp name.
We hope our designs here at The Alley Way will inspire a little creativity in everyone. From the oldest to the youngest, we hope it brings out the fun in crafting. We can't wait to see The Alley Way Stamps in your next project!


Be sure to go and see what they have to offer because their stamps will definitely bring a smile to your face!  Besides that, they are offering a free stamp set to this week's winner!  It's called The Gang (see image below)!



Just seeing this adorable set brings to mind the lyrics, "How much is that doggie in the window?"  Or, "There was a farmer had a dog..."  The design team has created some fun inspiration for this week's cue word and you may just be able to figure out what song some of them were thinking of when they were busy designing!  All have used The Alley Way Stamps sets!

  8. Super cute DT cards, ladies!! I had "insider" help linking my card (thanks, Ardyth!), so don't include me in the best picks, please. I'm adding my card anyway, just for fun and maybe to inspire someone in turn!!
