You're so PUNNY, Riley! :)

Happy Friday!  Little man and I spent the entire school day with his class at the enchanting Deering Estate on a class field trip today.  The weather is absolutely gorgeous here ~ a blessing since this estate is right on the ocean - complete with old indian burial sites, wilderness expedition, plant + animal preservation, nature hikes, mansion to walk through and a beautiful view of Biscayne Bay (C.S.I. Miami, anyone?!)  Here is a most gorgeous picture I took of the water and the sun sparkling like diamonds! :)


I also wanted to share with you the PUNNY Riley challenge!  The bi-weekly challenge, hosted by DT member Laurie, is to make a funny card using a Riley and Company stamp with a pun!  Hence, a punny card!  For my card today, I'm using BBQ Riley and the sentiment from the circus stamp set release since they go together like ............. hot dogs and buns :)  Heeee heeee! *Smile!*
This could easily double as a Valentine's card, too!  See how fun and creative Riley can be - I'd love to see what you make! 







You can link up your punny cards here on the blog as well as be inspired by the DT creations.  You can also find them off to the right on my sidebar.

Also, did you hear that Riley and Company is retiring some of the Riley stamps?  Yep, the shop is bursting at the seams with Riley goodness, and that only means more Riley goodness is on it's way!  I know it's sad to see some of the stamps leaving the shop, so you might want to take a peek at this list and see if any must haves are on it - and then scoop them up while you can!  When they are gone, they are gone! All stamps will be available until they are sold out or before April 1st, 2012.  Head on over for your "Moose" haves!

Thanks for stopping by!

Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!

  14. Hi Kelly, I really had to laugh when I scrolled down to your card. This is stinking cute. I love the bright colours you used. A beautiful picture of the water, it is sparkling like crystals. I got to spend a night in Florida between getting off the cruise ship and flying home. It is certainly a lovely place.
