It's a Riley Card Bonanza!

There are quite a few cards to give you inspiration on the Riley blog today--and two of them are mine!  I am so pleased to think about the arrival of Spring--and getting through with Winter.  My first card celebrates the saying "April showers bring May Flowers!"  I made a shaker card (so easy with a rectangular opening) and used the image called Rainy Day Riley.  This card is sure to bring a little sunshine to someone's life!















Another pleasant time in Spring is Easter--and it is coming up soon.  My second card is a sweet little Easter card (I may have to make another one of these as we have a great-great nephew and a great-great niece).  This card uses the cute Riley image called Chocolate Bunny (I didn't make my bunny chocolate though!)















Start working on those Spring and Easter cards.  Hope this has given you a little inspiration!

Riley Card Bonanza

I have two Riley cards to share with you today.  I love making these backgrounds!  I usually spend one evening and make several--and then have them to use whenever I need them.  The first card uses Hang Gliding Riley along with a sentiment from Circus Words. 















My second card uses Smiling Balloon.















I love these backgrounds--but I love the Riley images more.  Be sure to check them out as I'm sure you will find some that you just have to have!

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:)
