Happy Summer!


Sunny days are here!  What gorgeous skies I see outside after week(s!!) 
of rain and more rain - the sun is out, the kids are jumping in and out of the pool while I sit in my lounge chair nearby .... glorious!

Today a new Riley and Company Challenge begins ~ 
hostessed by me!
I'm thrilled to bring you this challenge this week and the theme I chose:
Summer!  For a bonus, we'd love for to use the color yellow somewhere on your card - easy peasy!

I inked up Hammock Riley, colored with prismacolor markers and used some papers that I had left over from recent card making.  In the inside, I added one of my favorite Riley stamps - "You can never have too much Happy!" 

Here's a peek:


We'd love for you to play along! To play, create a card using a Riley and Company images.  If you upload your card to a gallery, please use the keyword Riley1513.   To see what the rest of the DT created today, please check out their blogs for more yummy Riley and Company creations, and of course, link up your cards to the challenge blog!


Kelly Santi (you're here!)

Sending big hugs and hope your day is filled with sunshine and cheer! 
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
