I'm no Detective!

Good Morning!  Rushing through today to post this super fun card for the new Riley and Company challenge ~ create a masculine card :)  

Did I ever mention I LOVE Mystery/crime shows!  I do! I do!
I grew up sitting by my dad watching episodes of Kojak and Columbo
and then later such shows like Magnum PI and Miami Vice ;)
Not to mention my nose was always in a book, especially the Nancy Drew series when I was really young! Of course, there's no comparison to the incredible advances we've made in tv to what you see now-a-days, but it was fun growing up as a Detective, even if it was only in my head :)

For my masculine inspired card, I thought of my dad ~
but this card is actually for my daughter :)
She has been walking/jogging the trails with me a few nights a week and we just have the best time - trying to talk/laugh as we huff and puff our way around the desolate nature trails.  Suffice it to say, we've said more than once that one day we hope we don't happen to stumble upon something out in those woods that isn't supposed to be there!  Yikes!
Which is why I literally busted out laughing when I saw the Funny Bones sentiment release "I don't trust joggers .... "  How hilarious!!!
Using Detective Riley (he's retired - literally!) and the FB sentiment,
I bring you a funny card to shake up your Tuesday! :)

It's always a good day when I get to play with a Riley stamp, 
buttons AND ric-rac!  Woot! :)

I've got back to back meetings today (3 in total!) so I'll scoot but I sure hope you get the chance to play along with us this challenge.
Link up your Riley and Company masculine cards here to the challenge blog

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
