Laurel has made a cute little card using the new Monster Madness set. I just adore that she paper pieced him BLUE.. how fun right??

Kitchen Gadgets 2-Yep.. Kitchen Gadgets is such a big hit we had to create another set to go along with them. This set also has some fun punny sentiments too..
 Monster Madness-Well we love our Monster Mash set and wanted to create another set that you can use to mix and match to make even more monsters. This is a seriously cute set.
Mad Gab-What release would be complete without a new sentiment set.? This is another fun builder set that will go along perfectly with all our other sentiment sets.
 Tie One On-Just in time for father's Day.. Tie One On is a great mix and match to make your own one of a kind tie, (sentiments inside tie are separate stamps) this also includes 3 fun patterns and some punny sentiments.  

I hope you are just as excited as we are about these new sets..Come back tomorrow to see if you are one of our lucky Behind the Alley Blog hop winners :)
