Riley.. your my hero!

I'm a little late with my post today as my kiddies have been keeping me busy ;-)

Over at A Spoon Full of Sugar we have the below fantastic sketch for you to follow this week which has been designed by our very own Caryn. Eeeekkkk.. sorry Caryn I just noticed as I'm loading up this post that I put my sentiment in the wrong place.. slapped wrists!



This week the sponsor is me, Nikki of Bunny Zoe's Crafts!!! One lucky winner win the new High Hopes stamp Large Stackable Santa and also a selection of Christmas charms. I have lots of the new High Hopes stamps in stock as well as the newest stamps from many popular stamp companies including Bildmalarna and The Greeting Farm.


Our wonderful guest designer joining us this week is the very talented Chris - Sketching Stamper. If you haven't visited Chris at her blog before.. I assure you it's a must!

Ok, so a little about my card today. This is a new surprise release Fireman Riley. Riley sure is my hero ;-) I found the chipboard sentiment in a K&Co set I've had for a while. Riley has been stamped in Memento ink and coloured with Prismacolor pencils with Sansodor and paper stumps to blend. The buttons are from the Mardi Gras collection. I have also added a little stickles to the water. This Riley is currently with customs but will be in my store anyday now.

I received the above beautiful award from Penni today. Thank you so much sweetie for thinking of me.

I laughed when I read about the new stock items falling into your stash...I just adored those BG papers...do you not want EVERYTHING even more now though...you must have to be very disciplined not to have one each!! bx
