You're Snow Sweet!!


I love Riley.....don't you love Riley?? He so stinkin' cute with all the things he does!! I think this one is my favourite so far and I picked him up from Phebe at The Town Scrapper. She has LOTS of Rileys and if you live in the area, you can catch her at The London Scrapbook Expo on Saturday....that's where I'll be too!!

I decided to play long with the Hanna Sketch Challenge this week which was perfect for this image. I pulled out some of my favourite Heidi Grace dp from last year as the colours were exactly what I wanted! I stamped Riley and his pal on Wausau bright white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and used my Copics to colour them in.




I used Blue Bayou cardstock for the base and Soft Sky to accent and then added some River Rock stitched grosgrain ribbon. The sentiment is by High Hopes and I used one of my Nestabilities ribbon sliders to stamp it onto and then threaded my ribbon through it. I also added some white snowflakes brads that my friend Crissy sent me a while ago. I finished off the card by adding Stardust Stickles to the snow to make it all shimmery!

I also wanted to point out to you, if you haven't already joined in the fun, that my friend Cammie is having an amazing blog candy challenge to support World Alzheimer's Day! You can win over $800 worth of stampin' goodies....so what are you waiting for? Go check it out!!!

I'm off to work again this afternoon and working late, so I'll be home just in time to catch the end of the Dancing with the Stars results show. I hope I don't miss the Jonas brothers...heehee! No, I really mean it....my daughter has me hooked on them! Did you watch the show last night and see them all dance again?? There are some real contenders there....my faves are Lance Bass, Brooke Burke and ROCCO....mmmm..yum!

Kim, This is one stinkin' cute card...love it! I just got the nesties ribbon slider dies at Stampinbella yesterday. After you told me about the store I thought I should checked it out. So I went after my appt with the migraine doc in Unionville!
I am so jealous you get to go to London. Think of me while you are there and I am learning about Skopos translation theory....shopping sound way more fun, eh!

Love your card-the coloring is flawless and the colors are perfect. :O)
I was at my LSS last night and started talking with a lady while picking out copics....she was looking for colors for her riley stamps-I hadn't ever heard of them.....and then this morning-here is one-on Kim's blog. ;O)
So super cute-if I didn't have stamps from all over the place arriving this week-I'd order riley's too!
Thanks for the inspiration!
