You MOOSE be my type! :)

TGIF!  Been a long week here, trying to get back into the swing of things school wise!  But all is good and I'm back into my craftin' groove!  And I bring you a new Riley and Company challenge that I "moosed" while away on vacation - brought to us by the uber talented moosemate, Cindy!  She challenged us to make a Riley and Company card with a matching envelope - how adorable!!  I used writing Riley and paper-pieced his small letter he's writing with Jillibean soup dsp - LOVE!!!  I can show you my card and envie, I can't show the inside of this one, though I always decorate my card insides :) It's going to be heading off to a very sweet and special friend of mine so I want to keep part of it hidden so it will be a nice suprise when it makes is moose-landing! :)

I'm sorry for the washed out pictures!  Santa was super sweet to me this year and brought me an ipad, so I'm hoping to figure out how to post from one location very soon! My camera is shot, I'm taking pictures with my cell phone and really need to get everything down to one, organized location so thank you for bearing with me while I "get acquainted"!  :)

Remember to link up your Riley and Company card/envelope creations here at the crafting challenge blog - we'd love to see what you create!  Here's some inspiration from the Moosemates:
