Knit Happens

Because sometimes indeed - "knit" does happen - LOL!! Hee hee...isn't Knitting Riley so sweet? This is my card for the Friday Hanna Stamps challenge over on SCS - today's challenge is a sketch challenge from Janette - you can view the sketch here. I colored in my Riley to match this beautiful patterned paper that my dear friend Jennifer (who has a very cool blog now that I can link too - YAY!!) sent me - we have no idea who makes it - but it sure is pretty! :) I paper pieced Riley's chair with some of the plaid paper and then colored in the rest of him with Copics - the floor was handdrawn with my Copic multiliner pen and a ruler. The sentiment was done with Doodlebug Rub-ons - I love this saying with this Riley - but didn't have a stamp that said this - so I had to be creative. :) I added some eyelets to accent and then criss crossed some pretty purple fibers on the bottom of my card. Thanks so much for stopping by - I hope you'll all swing by the Hanna forum over on SCS and play in today's challenge!!

Aloha Candice,

I found you on SCS and have been enjoying your creations for a while now. As a matter of fact, I have CASED one of your cards (I hope you don't mind) and am now a guest on your "Guestbook". Thanks for being an inspiration.
