I'm hostessing an outdoor winter activity challenge!

Good morning!  My card today reaches you during sub-zero temperatures....brrr, and totally appropriate!  Today I am hosting a challenge over at the Riley and Company blog.  The subject of your card or project should be "outdoor winter activity."  Mine feels icy and cold...just like my fingers.


The stamp I have used is called Ice Fishing Riley and Percy and can be found HERE at the Riley and Company store. I colored the image with my copics and cut it out with scissors on the bottom and the paper cutter on the rest.  I really like to do this as I think it adds a little visual appeal. Once the image was adhered to the card I used crystal effects on the ice fishing hole to make it glossy.


I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
Please, also take some time to bop on over to the rest of the design teams' blogs and check out their creations.

Happy January!

I can't believe that the holidays flew by so fast!  Everything should just slow down already!  

Well, we are off to a new year at Riley and Company, with plenty of humor to start you off right!  Monica has challenged us to create a food or drink themed card.  Very appropriate seeing as how we have consumed lots of that lately! lol


I have used stamps from the December release:  Mister Coffee and Coasters.  You can find them HERE and HERE at the Riley and Company Store.


My goal for this year is to enter more challenges, so to that end....I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

ABC Challenges - A is for anything goes
Crafty Hazelnuts - anything goes with patterned paper
Sweet Stamps - food and drink

Make sure you head to see the rest of the design team's awesomeness!  Here are the links:

My last post before Christmas!


Good morning!  I hope everyone has finished their shopping and are done being busy little wrappers, and ready to enjoy Christmas!  I am finished the first part, but still have some wrapping to do...I am so ready for some family time.  Exciting!

This is our last challenge at Riley and Company until after Christmas.  If you get some new goodies from under your tree, break it on out and play along!  Kelly has challenged us to use non-traditional colors to make a Christmas card.  Here's what I did:


The stamp is called Sledding Riley and you can find it HERE in the Riley and Company Store.


HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
