Welcome to the 3GJ/TAWS Cross Promotion Double Challenge Blog Hop!

The goal of this cross promo/double challenge is to introduce you all to 2 awesome companies, gather inspiration from both DT’s and have the opportunity to enter 2 fun challenges!

Here is a bit about TAWS for those of you not familiar~

The Alley Way Stamps is owned and operated and all super adorable designs drawn by Alison can check out her shop here~
Here is a bit about 3 Girl JAM for those who are unfamiliar ~

3 Girl JAM is owned and operated by the talented Julie K Bling and her 2 daughters. They make the most beautiful hand dyed crinkle ribbon.... you can check out her shop here~

Every 2 weeks TAWS have a new challenge based on a fun photo called "Be Inspired" and 3GJ has their own challenge using 3GJ Crinkle Ribbon

So for this challenge the DT's are using the inspiration photo, The Alley Way Stamps and ribbon from 3 Girl Jam

YOUR challenge will be to come up with a project using THIS photo, a stamp and ribbon.

Remember the photo is for inspiration ONLY....

~~~be creative, use your imagination and show us what this photo inspired you to create~~~

Onto the hop...

You should have arrived at my blog from Stacey's blog  

Here is my take on the inspiration photo -

I used a TAWS freebie for my sentiment and the TAWS stamp set "get the point" for all the pieces in my banner.  My ribbon is "sunflower" from the 3 Girl Jam "harvest" bundle and I added a 3 Girl Jam vintage button in gray.  I was inspired by the colors of the photo as well as the banner that went across the top of two of the little characters.  I also used some wood grain paper at the bottom of my card which was inspired by the wood grains in the picture.

Your next stop on the hop is Kasia.
