Happy Monday! I hope you've had a lovely weekend whether you celebrated Valentine's or not. We celebrated our first Valentine's as husband and wife by going to see Scott Bradley's Postmodern Jukebox live here in Sheffield. It was AMAZING! If you're a fan of talent and a classic spin on modern pop songs then I highly recommend them. :)
But I digress. I'm not here to babble. I'm actually posting today as part of an amazing blog hop to celebrate Altenew's release of new goodies!
Welcome to Altenew's first 2015 blog hop! Not yet a year old, this company was launched in April 2014, and has quickly gained recognition among paper crafters. All the stamps that you will see being used here are available for purchase at the Altenew store and for pre-order at Simon Says Stamp.
Well I can hardly believe that I've been asked to be part of such an amazing line up of amazing talent. I'm pretty sure Altenew owners, Jennifer and Tasnim have the wrong Amy Gray LOL! But I'm here now anyways! You should have hopped here from the delightful Donna Mikasa. If you haven't, then be sure to start out at Altenew HQ.
I created three cards using some fabulous new stamp sets from the release. I had plenty more sketched out and only time stopped me from inking my little heart out! The first card uses three sets, Birthday Greetings (an essential set for any cardmaking stamper IMHO!), Wood Pallet Background and Vintage Flowers. All three sets will remain on my desk within grabbing distance for sure! The flower and leaves were a breeze to stamp using three different shades of ink and are so detailed! Great if you're not a fan of colouring. ;)
For my next card I got busy with the set, Halftone Thanks:
Finally, an extremely simple card for my brother's birthday:
Now a blog hop wouldn't be a blog hop without some prizes along the way, right? To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away five stamp sets of choice to three lucky winners! The winners will be chosen from comments on the Altenew blog.
There's more! I will choose a winner from comments left on this post and the prize will be two stamp sets of your choice. You have until Friday February 20th, 11.59pm EST to leave your comments. You may enter up to two comments on:

Well that's all from me, thanks so much for stopping by. It's now time for you to hop along and check some more Altenew goodness from the marvellous Melania Deasy!
