Riley: Say it in Song!






Good Morning!  Today a new Riley and Company challenge starts and it's brought to us by DT member, Jovita!  She has challenged us to create a Riley card using the theme: "Inspired by Song".  

For me, music is a big part of our lives and we have it playing all the time, including Christmas songs!   One of my all-time favorites is Noel ~ esp when song by Josh Groban  ::: swoon! :::  I was blessed to see him in concert a few years ago and he's a truly gifted and amazing performer.  But I digress! My card ..... I went with the song "Noel" :)  I paired up the brand new, clear stamp Carrying Tree Riley with a 4.25 x 5.5 cut-out card that I found here. I printed out the template and paper-pieced the letters with a 'top coat' of paper in country hearth tones of paper.  Our church has decorated this year using ferns and red gingham ribbons, raffia and real pine cones - such a heart and home-spun feel to it all and that's what I was channeling when dreaming up this card :)




We'd love to see what song inspired cards you come with, too!  Please link them to the Riley and Co blog and if you use a gallery, please use the keyword Riley2512.

Have a *musical* day! :)

Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!

  1. Wow! What an awesome card, Kelly! Love that you were able to use a NOEL cut-out card and the papers you used are so bright and fun and cheery...Just like you! And, of course, Riley adds just the right "note" to this "song" card!;) BTW, "Noel" was my mother's favorite Christmas carol.

  3. Wow Kelly!Love the word card idea and how adorable is Riley with the tree. Love how the tree is hanging off the edge! I love Josh Groban too, and I would be swooning if I got to see him. Lucky you! Poor hubby last year as I LOVE Donny Osmond and hubby got us tickets to Donny & Marie's Christmas show in NYC. I was over the moon and weeping thru puppy love. Poor hubby..ha ha..
