I love Riley :-)

Ok.... I can now scream my news out loud... Yay.. I have joined the fabulous Hanna stamps design team!!! Thank you so much Kristi and Vicki for this wonderful opportunity.

Well so I am here today joining in with the sneak peaks for Monday's new releases. Also on Monday the girls will be having a party over at SCS at 9-11pm EST.

On my card today I have used the new stamp Ice cream Riley. This sweet little guy will be available to buy on Tuesday from Bunny Zoe's Crafts. Riley is stamped in Memento ink and has been coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. The papers are one of my favourites at the moment and are from the DCWV stack Nana's kitchen. I added some stickles sparkle to Riley's Ice cream as the dp was sparkly too. I cut Riley out using oval nestabilities. I then added an oval scalloped nestie behind but tilted it slightly... just to be different ;-)

For some fun texture I added some apple green jute and lots of yummy pink and cappucino buttons. My sentiment stamp is from an Inkadinkado clear stamp set by Brenda Walton. I won this recently in Karen's blog candy. Thanks so much Karen! The Sweet Friend sentiment was stamped in SU Close to Cocoa.

I hope you like my sneak peak and be sure to catch up with me again soon as I will have more samples to show you tomorrow through to Monday :-) I can't wait to see what the rest of the team have created. Here are the links for you to come and check out too :-)

Our wonderful July Guest Designers are:
See you tomorrow
