RetroSketches #22 and a special guest!

Good Morning!
How are you this fine Saturday?
I have a RetroSketches sketch to share with you to day but an extra special surprise too. We are so excited to have a fabulous sponsor with us this week!!
(So exciting I know!!)
 They are a fabulous little company based out of Utah.
Here's a bit about the company in owner Alison's own words!
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 17 and growing. 

 We at The Alley Way bring you one of a kind stamp. 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. 
Check them out here, and their blog here.
This week's sketch is based on this gorgeous creation by Arielle.
Pretty in pink!!
My card for this week was made using the Castaways stamp set.
 cute set right?

 I couldn't resist that little puffer fish!! 
And the sentiment was just too perfect to pass up. 
Next week is our 3 year wedding anniversary,
and I thought Cam would love this. :)

I played around a little bit with the orientation of the sketch.

Hop on over to the RetroSketches blog to check out what Arielle, Jackie and Laurie have in store for you, then link up your own fabulous take on this cute little sketch.
Remember you have until Thursday Aug 2nd to link up.

Also stop by The Alley Way stamps to have a look around, they are just too cute!

One little bit of sad news to share, Jackie will be leaving this lovely little band of crafters to explore new things. If you haven't heard already she is starting up a new fabulous challenge blog, that will get you breaking out your electronic die cutting machines. :)

Stop by her blog for more info!
