Riley's Holiday Challenge & BLOG CANDY!

Happy Tuesday!!  It's time for another bi-weekly challenge at the Riley and Co blog  This week, our hostess is DT member Joy, who asked us to create a holiday card using a Riley/Sophie stamp - easy breazy!  There are so many fun and wonderful winter/Christmas stamps at the Riley and Co store, especially with the fabby new release we just had - my head is still spinning! :)

My card today is using sledding Riley, one of the activities I hope that we'll be able to do this Christmas :)  I've never wished for anything so hard that I can remember but hopefully the upcoming travels will include a little (or a lot!) of it - what bliss!

And since it's the holidays, how about a little candy?  Today's post has a FREE Riley stamp giveaway from Me to one of you!  It's not a hop, not a R and C stamp giveaway, just one that I bought with my lil 'ol money as a giveaway so all you have to do is leave a comment below so I know where to find you when a random.org name is drawn - woot woot!  Inside the stocking (which is plain for now!) is an UM Riley stamp and I won't show you just yet which one it is *wink!*






Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!

  13. Now, my dear sweet Kelly, you know that you don't have to give us candy to come to your blog!!! We love it here!! And your Riley is cute as ever on his little sled!! I'm liking that rick rack white trim and the green DP is so cute! Your coloring is spot-on and I wish that I could color snow like that!

  20. Cute!!!! This is sweet, that Riley is having a great time in that snow and I love the ric rac with the snow around his sled, just a perfect card :) I hope that you have a snowstorm on Christmas Eve, those are the best kinds, then it is sunny the next day and the snow sparkles like diamonds, those days were special while in New England, so I pray for that for y'all.

  26. Too cute! Your ricrac ribbon makes me think of rolling hills for Riley and his sled! You do not need to enter me in the candy drawing (since I just received my FREE Riley in the mail this week!!!) I will be in Gatlinburg in February, so I hope you get all of the snow your heart desires this Christmas! Maybe that way it won't be freezing cold when I go! We get more than enough snow at home!
