Awesome Game Riley!

Back again today to show you this cute Retro Tennis Riley. So what do we mean by retro Hanna & Riley??? During the summer months Hanna Stamps are having a retro summer. Retro summer will consist of Hanna Stamps regular released sets, and bringing back one of the old released sets into the mix. This will give the newer customer's a chance to see the old sets in a new light, and then give the customer's that already bought the sets a new way of using them. You don't have to wait until Monday for this cutie and Tennis Riley is available to buy now at Bunny Zoe's crafts. What I love about Riley is that he makes those hard to make man cards so easy!

Riley is stamped in Memento ink and coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. My papers used are Basic Grey Boxer and I added co-ordinating buttons from my stash. The letters are stickers which were sent to me from my friend Agnes. Thank you again Agnes! I couldn't resist using more Jute again as it reminded me of a net or strings on Rileys racket. The sentiment is from the Pink Cat Studio set Sporty Billy. I have used a great sketch designed by Claudia over at Friday Sketchers. Thanks Claudia and your sketch was fun to work with!

Don't forget to check back at yesterdays post to follow the links to the rest of the Hanna team.

Have a great Saturday and see you tomorrow with another sneak and the High Hopes Sunday challenge.
