A new Riley!

Ok, well, he's not NEW new, but he's new to me. Ok, well, he's not NEW to me, I've had him sitting on my table, uninked, for quite a while now. I've been so lost in all the High Hopes goodness lately that I've neglected my other stamps. There have even been MORE Rileys released since *this* one was released~ how cute is the one with the pj's?? I must have him!! Anyway, on to the one I *DO* have!


Riley is of course colored with Prismas & gamsol, & I popped up the tree & his boots for a little dimension. There are Stickles on the tree, the ground, & on the snowflakes. The paper is Riding Hood Red & Basic Grey's Figgy. I did buy the Wassail pack the other day, but I'm making myself use some more of the Figgy first. Not hard to do, I *heart* this pack! The RHR piece was embossed with the Cuttlebug snowflake folder, & I finished it off with a photo corner & 4 red pearls. I'm not sure Riley would appreciate being surrounded by pearls, but those corners needed something & the red pearls were calling to me!



Here's a picture of the inside. I added a scrap strip of the BG paper & stamped an Imaginisce Xmas tree in the corner. I covered the garland in Stickles, so it's nice & sparkly!!



Today was Halloween party day at the school, & I helped out with Michael's class. They got to put on their costumes & parade around the whole school, going into just about every classroom. I must be a GEEK because I had just as much fun as the kids!! For the party, Michael chose to be a fireman. Here he is, standing all happy & proud :)


After the party I helped with the last day of the Scholastic Book Fair, so I'm pretty beat. I'm going to veg with my kids tonight ~~ play some games & watch something Halloween-y on TV. Have a great night!!

Cute Riley card! I love these papers from last year. I wish I had your discipline! I buy the new collections before I 've used up the previous ones, hence my huge paper stash! I love where you added dimension and the corner piece to finish off your card! As always, the inside is great!
