It's a Riley Card Bonanza Day!

Check out the Riley blog!  There lots of inspiration there for you.  I have two bits of inspiration for you also!  First is a tri-fold shutter card using Heart Riley. I think this card may go to my granddaughter.

It looks even better opened up! I tried to photograph it without the shadow--with no luck!  Sorry:(

My second card is the type I use most often--a birthday card.  I used Smiling Burt the Cat on it (love him!!). Burt is holding the balloon with a piece of twine on his tail! I think this card will go to my husband.

Riley New Release--Day 5

I can't believe how much fun I have had playing wit this new release.  Hope you have stopped by our store and ordered.  I know you will love it as much as I do!

My first card today is a side step card using a new sentiment that says--the lottery gives you a 1 in 200 million chance that you won't go to work tomorrow.  Tequila gives you 1 in 5. I paired this with Ethel and lots of drinks:)

My next card is a double Z card using Car Riley and one of the new sentiments that says "I'm a craftaholic on the road to recovery.  Just kidding. I'm on the road to the craft store."  How true!!!

Last is my favorite card of this entire release (and I have loved all of them!) The sentiment says "You remind me of all that is good and bright and beautiful in this world".  I used texture paste and created sun rays to go with these fabulous words!  I'm sure this card will go to my granddaughter!

Didn't Tanya do a fabulous job with this release!!!!!  I can't believe how creative she is.  Be sure to check out all the lovelies created by our design team--and place your order.  I'm sure there are some specials on the blog so be sure to check that out!  Bye for now.  Remember that our DT gives inspiration on Tuesdays.

Riley Release Week--Day Four

Back for more!!!  Just so you know that there are other stamps and dies other than the Riley paper dolls, I'm not using any of those today!  My first card is a center stop card with a Mushroom lane image--a hospital!  I thought that image worked very well with Nurse Sophie!  I have two friends going into the hospital soon for surgery--and this may just be the get well card for one of them!

Next is a card that features one of the new sentiments--Why buy it for $7 when you can make it yourself with $92 of craft supplies!  I certainly understand that!  I paired that sentiment with Stamping Riley. They sure do go well together.

And last is a card for my husband.  He LOVES his wine--and is not too crazy about using the gym.  This new sentiment says "It was so windy when I was walking to the gym that I got blown into the wine store."  LOL!

Last day for posts during release week is tomorrow--and there is still more to share!  See you then:)

Riley Release Week--Day Three

Hope you are checking out the posts from our design team (links on the right of my blog!) I'm sure you are finding lots in this new release that you want to buy.  Head over to our store and do it; these stamps, dies, and images are SO much fun!!! While you are there, you might also want to investigate the stamp club--what a great way to add to your collection!

My first card showcases Riley doing some window shopping!  Riley has his back to us staring in a window at the clothes available!  I'm sure he is as thrilled with these new clothes as I am with these new stamps and dies!  I know you will be too.

And now--on to St. Patrick's Day!  This Riley (with die) is sporting all his St. Paddy Day clothes--a hat, a bow tie, a kilt, and even a beer!  He is wishing "Top of the Morning" to you!

And still one more for St. Patrick's Day.  This card features an older Riley--St. Patrick's Beer Riley on a shaker card.  I was a little tired of red Christmas cards and Valentine's cards, so this one was a lot of fun to make!

Back tomorrow and Friday also with lots more inspiration!  Be sure to check the others:)

Riley New Release--Day Two

Back with more!!!  Hope you checked out Tanya's new designs yesterday in our store. If not, you had better get there quickly!  There are two new Rileys with dies, stamps and dies for clothes and accessories for those new Rileys, lots of sentiments (snarky as can be!), and new Mushroom Lane images.  It is a GREAT release!!!

My first card is one of the type that I need most often--and birthday card!  I used one of the new Rileys wearing a birthday hat and a bow tie!  He is holding two birthday balloons--and will certainly bring a smile to a birthday boy or girl! I am very partial to that black and yellow color combo.

Second card still uses one of the new Rileys and die.  This one is wearing a tutu!  The Funnybones sentiment that I used is I Danced Like No One Was Watching...Court Date Pending! lol!!!

I can't stop playing with these images and dies!  My last card (for today) uses both of the new Rileys!  They are both dressed for a party--with beers in their hands.  I love that sombrero!!! You can tell that both are ready to party.

More tomorrow!!!
