Got Game?!

Hi all!

We have some *super* news at the Riley and Company Stamps -
our Design Team has grown!
We have 6 new talented and wonderful new designers
joining the team ~ we're excited to have you on board!

It's also time for another Riley and Company challenge!
This one is brought to us by DT member, Frances.  In her words ....

 Apparently the first public basketball game was played on the 11th March in 1892.
 So for our challenge today create a card with a sporting theme,
 it doesn't have to be basketball.
I happen to have Basketball Riley so it was fun to ink him up!
I used the Cuttlebug to cut out several circular nesties and then ran one
through the swiss dots folder for the basketball.  I ran it through
again with a black piece of card stock and then cut out tiny strips and glued them down.  Riley is colored with prismacolor markers.

Here is my card front:

And on the inside, I used the sentiment
Nothing is Impossible
I thought it was fitting for all the kids who play and
 for those who sit on the sidelines and cheer :)

This is my 64th card in my personal challenge this year ...
eek, gotta catch up! :)

Be sure to join us on the Riley and Company Challenge!

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
