Riley and Company - CAS Summer!

Happy summer!
I really do love this time of year,
the kiddies all home giving room to spend our summer days
any 'ol way we chose :)
We've been enjoying the fun-ness of nearly every day,
exploring and creating and loving the long, lazy nights!
And summer just happens to be the theme this week
CAS summer, actually.
Well ...........
as most of you already know, I love me some layers!
CAS = quite a stretch!
But I manage to keep just the white space around the Balloons Riley
and stamped out Happy To be Alive, and masked off
with good 'ol fashioned scotch tape the last part
as it had the exact message I was looking for :)
I added a small section of scrap dsp to the left, and a small scrap of cardstock - run through the scallop border punch to the right,
and a button to top if off!
 And the inside, of course, left blank for now ~ and it's done!


We sure hope you can ink up your Riley and Company stamps
and play along!  Once you create your card/project,
you can link it up to the blog ....
Or, if you'd like to use a gallery like Pinterest or SCS,
please use the keyword Riley1315.
Thanks for stopping by today ~
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!


 I'll enter my card for consideration into these challenges:

  16. Kelly this is so true, we often struggle just to make it through the daily routine and forgetting to look after our own happiness. This is so perfect for our HAPPINESS theme this month. Thanks for sharing your talent with us and good luck.

  17. Hi Girl;
    Hope your having a great Summer,as you can tell I have not been on my blog for a while :), I am enjoying what little Summer we get here.
    Love your Riley card, and love that sentiment.

  18. LOL, love your idea of CAS! Such a cute card, wonderfully colorful, and perfect message.

  19. What a true sentiment. How often do we put off the activities that make us happy...too often. Enjoy your summer holidays with your kids for it a short and idyllic time.
    Oh your card is pretty snazzy too!

  20. This card is so happy and summery!

  21. When I think of summer, I think of colors such as those in this card! I love the sentiment. I'm a firm believer in happy. :-) My son will start driving me to and from his one English college class July 1 (he needs hours behind the wheel with a licensed adult for his own license), so at least a few hours M-Th will be taken this summer, but there's plenty of time left to do so many other things!

  22. Beautiful! Love the vibrant colors and your cute Riley. I find it hard to do CAS also. Layers just add so much to a card. Enjoy the summer with the kiddos

  23. Oh gosh, this really is the perfect summer card. Love the bright colors and image. Your design (inside and out) is fab!

  24. Just adorable. I like the bright yellow with the fun striped paper.

  25. A super summertime card with such bright and happy colours.

    It lovely to see you at FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges, many thanks for joining in.
