Hi everyone and welcome to my blog. It time to join the Alota Rubber Stamps Design Team for their Alota Anniversary Blog Hop!
Alota Rubber Stamps are celebrating their 14th Anniversary today … how exciting is that!!!!!!! So we are celebrating with our very first blog hop, when you get to the end of the hop you will find some nice surprises you can win …. so follow the links in our hop so you can join in the fun! I am the beginning of the hop, so let's get started!!!!!!
Today I am featuring two of the latest releases of Alota bugs, I am so excited to have new Alota bug stamps to play with. It was the Alota bugs that first introduced me to Alota Rubber Stamps & Helene the owner of the company … I just fell in love with those bugs! I guess you could say this was the very first design team I was on … way back before there was any such thing as design teams LOL … 10 years ago!
My first card uses the new 1995-2009 Celebration Bugs image and I thought this was perfect for this particular blog hop. It shows how the bugs looked at the very being when they first came out (the one on the right) and of course how they look today. … I added the number “14” to the little stamp in the centre of the bugs …. just for Alota Rubber Stamps Anniversary!
My second card today uses the new Sprinkler Bugs …. aren’t they just adorable hehe! I added paper piercing to the top corners of my image panel. The layout for this is MTSC34 from Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch challenges.
