Riley Challenge - Warm winter friends :)

Hi friends!  I hope your week is off to a great start!  Today was definitely a fun and uber busy day - and it's only Tuesday!  ;) I volunteered at my son's school working in the week long holiday store that we set up for the kids to come in and shop for their mommies and daddies and families :)  It's so cute seeing their faces, some of them as young as 3.5, saying "mommy really wants this soccer ball!  Really, she does!  I just know it!" LOL!   

It's the bi-weekly challenge for Riley and Company and this week's challenge is a fun one - a side step card!  Silly me, I read "easel card" when I saw the post awhile back and created the little rounded easel card style - ooops!  Hopefully Riley and Percy snow dancing will be just as cute in this style as they would have side steppin' *smile!*




I used another mat stack from MME to keep with the festive, fun theme of the Riley image, colored with prismas and some glitter for snow - pretty CAS overall, but what fun!   I really enjoyed putting this simple but creative card together and could easily see making this style as an invitation, etc.

Want to see some more DT inspiration and link up your side step card?  Check out the Riley blog here, we'd love to see what you make!  If you use a gallery or post to SCS, use the keyword Riley2411 so we know where to find you :)

Have a great rest of today!
Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!
