Day Three Sneak Peeks--Timber!

Looks like Riley has taken a change in his career path......wanting to build huge "pipes" a tenure as a lumberjack was his first thought............He loves to be in the outdoors as you know, the smell of pine in the cool autumn breeze! He looks mighty fine in his jeans, dontcha think.........hehe...'kay now I am getting a little carried away with myself here, but I really love this image. I love most of the Riley images, but this one is over the top for me!

I used my Mr. Campy Paper from Cosmo Cricket for the Background, coloured the main image with Copics, highlights with Signo Uniball and the Stampin' Up! It's your Birthday set for the little sentiment. Michaels just got a whole load of new punches from EK success, this on is the arrow border punch! I just love border punches. I also got a scalloped scallop punch, but haven't played with that one yet! My Base Cardstock is Chocolate Chip from Stampin' up!

The DT is rocking this release, go have a peek by following my sidebar
