New Riley in the house!!!!!






Isn't he just the cutest???? All star rootin' tootin' Riley Moose, Hockey Player extraordinaire!!!!
There isn't anything that Riley can't seem to do!!!!! 

I've always wished for a guy that was athletic, could bake, ski, build snowmen, golf, camp and even iron.............hmmmmmmm but he is a tad short and furry for me!!!! Oh well, better leave him to Sophie!!!!

I created the first card using the Sketch from the Mojo Monday Website. I just discovered this challenge a couple of weeks ago and I LOVE sketch challenges and interesting layouts, so if you are looking for something to stir your creative juices.............head on over and play the challenge!

For this Riley, I used a chocolate, brocade blue and mustard colour combination along with a Burgandy DP from Rusty Pickle.  I coloured the image with Copics and drew in the Boards.  I finished the card of by using lots of punches, circles, stars and my favourite word window punch!






I created an opponent for Riley by using the Hanna Reverse image stamp.  In addition, I used the trees from 'Tis the Season to make an outdoor winter scene.  A little Liquid Applique allowed me to make a little snowbank and of course my gel pen makes sweet little snowflakes!!!! The huge honkin' EH! stamp is from the M's Dollar BIn!!! I totally LOVE this stamp, because if you know me, you'll know that EH, is a main staple in my vocabulary...............hehe








Last, but not least......... I got a little Sew Happy with this card. My good friend and Sewing GURU Jeanne Streiff has got me inspired to sew. Now I just want to stitch stitch stitch..........zigging and zagging all over the place! Kraft, Not Quite Navy and Baja Breeze were the main colour combinations in this little greeting!!! SU! Rubons, Ribbon and Word Window Punch complete the look

Hope you enjoyed my Riley creations! I sure enjoyed making them!

Have a wonderful day,

*****Vicki*****
