I Pine 4 U **Riley Sneak Peek**

Good Morning!!! And what a beautiful Sunday it is - well - it's deceptively beautiful here - the sun is shining - but it is FREEZING outside - yikes - bring on Spring!!! I've got a peek at the 2nd new Riley being released this month from Hanna Stamps - this little cutie "Timber Riley" along with Spa Riley and 3 new Hanna sets will be released tomorrow night after the release party (9-11 PM EST on the Hanna forum at SCS). This card is also for today's Featured Stamper challenge over on SCS - yay! - I love getting up in the mornings and playing in the SCS challenges - such a fun start to the day. Today's featured stamper is the talented Kelly_H and I chose this card to case - such an adorable outdoor-sy card!! I knew I had to try to work in Timber Riley on that tree background somehow - so for my card - I kept the basic layout of the original card, the trees in the background and that big ol' sentiment - I LOVE how Kelly did the sentiment on this card! I used some old alphabet foam stamps that I bought at Hobby Lobby that I haven't used in ages!! OMG - I remember going thru that foam stamps and acrylic paint phase in scrapbooking - LOL - I have so many of those sets and never got rid of them - I'm glad I didn't and found another awesome use for them this morning!! So the "pine" was done with the foam stamps and the "i, 4, u" were done using Doodlebug Simply Sweet mini rub-on letter. I cut my Riley out with circle nesties and colored him with Copics. The changes I made to the original card were to change the image - I added some ribbon to the top and left off the brads on the bottom of the card since my base is just one layer. Can I also say I love doing "CAS" cards??!! I so want to get better at these - there is nothing more beautiful than a strinking CAS card, KWIM?? Thanks so much for stopping by today - hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and I hope to see you at the Hanna release party tomorrow night - what a fun way to cure those Monday blues!!!! "See" you then!!
