Riley waiting for Santa!

I have been admiring Riley stamps on Cindy's Haffner's blog for a while now and i've finally got some of my own to play with. If you haven't come across Cindy's blog you are in for a treat!

Isn't this little guy just the cutest and I hope he has been a good moose! Thank you to my friend Jakki for sending me the window and sentiment which were just perfect for my little scene - I believe these are both by Magnolia. I created a little pelmet for the window and added some gems. The papers are again K&Co Brenda Walton Peppermint Twist and the idea for my card came about from seeing the left overs of one of the designs which had santa in his sleigh. I've coloured the image with a mixture of copic sketch markers and Prismacolour pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. I have now switched inks and Momento is just perfect for combining these two mediums.
I hope to get round to visit all your blogs today and am sorry for being such a bad blogger the last couple of days! The Christmas panto was brilliant on Saturday night and I laughed so hard my cheeks hurt. I know i'm sad but the Chuckle Brothers were hilarious!

Have a great Monday!
Hugs,

Gorgeous card Nikki,
Your colouring is just supurb!
That sentiment stamp is perfect for your card.
We went to see the Chuckle brothers in pantomine when my children were 6 and 8 they really made it a great show. I agree they are excellent for giving you a laugh. My children are 23 and 26 now!

What a FAB Riley Christmas card!! He looks so little with the big window really makes him look like a child. GREAT thinkin' girl *wink*

I have been a bad blogger too -- so busy -- hope things are a little less busy for us all soon.

In the meantime, if you find the time to create a card or two -- There is a mini challenge on my blog that I believe you might be interested in as well. LOTS of changes to the website/store, too. Hope to see your submissions for the DT (even though I know you have quite a bit on your plate right now). Hugs, Kel :)
