Route 66 Riley

Riley got some new chaps for Christmas, which meant of course he had to take a little Roadtrip down Route 66! Friday's Hanna Challenge was to make a card using a Riley stamp as well as some accessories from one of the Hanna Sets, which in this case was the Route 66 Hanna biker set. There are some fabulous complimentary images in this set that will allow you to make a scene!

The sentiment is from Stampin' up! it's your birthday. The DP is a retired one from SU! as well. Base cardstock is really rust, complimentary is Chocolate Chip. I coloured in the image with Copics, sponging in the sky and sand and using white, silver and gold gel pens for accenting. The Hemp Twine and Star punch polish the card of quite niceely don't you think?

Wow only a few more days left in the Year...............what do you hope to accomplish before year's end? Leave a comment and you could be the winner of a Hanna Pirate set, plus some other sweet candy!


  1. This is super cute!! I love Riley!!

    What do I hope to accomplish before year's end?? Not too much! I plan to take it easy and continue to enjoy the rest of my time off!!! Life will get busy again soon enough!

  2. He's so stinkin cute! Love him and that set! This year I wanted to learn as much as I can about stamping and I've come a ways, but I want to learn about coloring with distressed inks so that's what I'm going to work on until the end of the year and into the new year. I hope all the things you want to accomplish for the new year come your way!

  3. Did I hear CANDY!?! Pick me! pick me!
    Did I mention how STINKIN' ADORABLE this card is?! Or how I am amazed by your endless talent and creativity! Or how extremely lovely you are looking these days!

  4. I hope to get my stamp room in order, and all my DT stuff done for January.
    I am so crossing my fingers, I do NOT have the Pirate Hanna set....thanks Vicki, and I love this card!
    Smooches and hugs,

  5. What I really hope to accomplish before year's end is just to continue to have a calm, low-key time with my family. 2008 hasn't been so great, but we have had a precious time so far during this Christmas season. I'm reminded how much more important the people in my life are than the "things" we thought we couldn't live without. I'm reminded just how really good God is and I'm trying to learn to wait on Him and His perfect timing. So, just to continue to love on my family and be loved on by them is really all I want to do to finish out 08!

  6. I love this one!!! The western designer paper fits right in with cowboy Riley!!!! Great card!

  7. I see in the post below that you have the set Deer Friends. I absolutely adore that set. If you have any extra around, my birthday is coming along. (It would be the perfect gift, I'm just sayin'...)Okay, maybe my birthdya isn't till October, it will be here before you know it, and you know you'll want to celebrate it with appropriate gift giving.

  8. I hope to get my scrap room organized-LOL this will never happen before January 1st- the card is gorgeous, coloring great!

  9. Hi Vicki :) Cute card and design, LOVE the NEW Riley images and all of your darling designs! It's a no wonder you are on the DT!!

    PS I need to organize my stamp area and find a place for my extra paper!! Who doesn't rigth?! LOL :D

  10. Love those Rileys!!! My biggest concern for 2009 is finding employment. Beyond that, I need to get my stamping area organzied. Happy New Year everyone!

  11. That Riley sure does get around! Your card is so very, very cute, Vicki! Really great creating and coloring of Riley's scene, too. Hey, all I hope to accomplish before year's end is getting the house clean and tidy after the Christmas rush. I'd like to finish that so I can have some stamping time! Happy new year!

  12. This is such an awesome card Vicki!!! I love the scene! You did a fabulous job of pulling all the pieces together! :D

  14. OMG!! This is too stinkin' CUTE!!! Love the western style scenery!! I love those Rileys!! Gotta break mine out soon!!! :)

  15. I truely adore Kristi's creation of Riley, and how easily he "fits" every image and the surroundings. Your card looks like a painting that needs to be framed...beautiful Vicki. :)
