Good Times Always with Riley!


Hi there!  Who loves Good Times?!  Riley!  :)  I hope you had a wonderful long weekend, blessed by the sacrifices of so many to give us this freedom to cherish.  Dh and I scooted off to a romantic getaway without our kiddos - *Bliss!*  

My card is getting up a little late as I looked at it this morning after rushing to complete it before we left and blech!!  It was NOT happening.  I started all over from scratch with the same stamp and am much happier with the brighter, cheerier, funner colors of this non-traditional Riley card!  

I went with the uber fun Gingerbread Riley and Sophie stamp and had visions of sugarplums dancing in my head when I paired it with these papers ;)  The challenge this week at the Riley and Company blog is to make a pocket card.  These are always fun to make!  I made a pocket with a hidden tag - wonderful for a quick note and then I added the same theme on the inside for this fun holiday card :)








We'd love to see what you come up with this bi-weekly challenge!  If you use a gallery, use the keyword Riley2313.  Have fun!

Be sure to see what the rest of the DT has made this week - you can find their blogs over on my sidebar.  


Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!
