It's Hockey Riley!!

Friday, January 16, 2009

Earlier this week Mrs Kristi surprised everyone, including the design team, by releasing this new Riley. I just got mine in the mail last night and couldn't ink him up fast enough!

Meet Hockey Riley!

Remember when I told you about that mad shopping frenzy I spent my New Years Day doing? Well, one of the designer papers I picked up was this Canadian leave paper. It's fun isn't it? I am not sure why I thought I needed it, but it did make me think of my fellow Hanna Stamps DT girls from across the border (and those that have defected! LOL) so I bought it. Who knew I was going to use it two weeks later, ehh? Not me!

I used a very simple design for this card since the patterned paper was so busy. I created the background around Riley with my SU inkpads and a Micron pen. I printed out the sentiment from my computer. So....do you want to see the inside of the card?? hehe

Mwhahahhahaha!! You REALLY didn't think I was going ALL Canadian on ya did ya!? hehehe I just couldn't resist! I love my Canadian friends and family (my sister in law and my husband's cousin new husband are from across the border) but I LOVE my Boston teams more!! I think I'll send this card to my husband's cousin who just recently moved to Ottawa with her Canadian husband. She'll get a kick out of it for sure!

Long live the Mighty Boston Bruins!! LOL Hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Thank you for all the wonderful comments left this week too! I've really enjoyed reading them all. I'll have some fun stamps so show you next week, so come back now ya hear?

I am a moose lover and a lover of rubberstamping so what a perfect match for me. I also have a question. How do you go about getting on a design team. I would absolutely love working with Riley. tscardlady on SCS
