Altenew October 2016 Release Blog Hop


Hey!

Happy Friday Eve! Welcome to the Altenew October Release Blog Hop! If you're hopping along with us today, then you should have hopped across here from my fellow talented Altenew teamie, Svitlana Shayevich. If you're not, then there's no better time like the present to join in the fun so be sure to start out at the Altenew HQ. :)

Today we're celebrating the release of 16 fantastic new stamp sets and there's something for everyone! I couldn't resist inking up the Modern Deer stamp set to get an early start on my Christmas cards (well...early for me anyway!) ;)

AmyGray Warm winter wishes

I love that this set contains two stunning deer in a layered stamping format that makes is super-easy to add detail and dimension to these beautiful images. To add a little more texture to the woodland theme I couldn't resist popping the scene on a card blank created from my favourite Altenew white woodgrain cardstock.

Now a blog hop wouldn't be a blog hop without prizes, right? Altenew are giving away a $50 gift certificate to THREE lucky winners and I'm giving away a $30 gift certificate to one lucky winner. To be in with a chance of winning the $50 gift certificate, leave a comment on the Altenew blog and to be in with a chance of winning my $30 gift certificate pop a comment on this post. All comments need to be left by Wednesday October 19th at 11.59pm EST and winners will be announced on Thursday October 20th. Good luck!

Well, that's enough from me today as it's time for you to hop along to the next stop which just so happens to be the lovely Nicole Picadura – happy hopping!
