Easter Wishes Riley

Personal note: Thank you so much for all the sweet comments and email regarding Sabrina. She is doing better. I think her ear problems are not over, though, and we may be visiting an ENT specialist at some point, but for now she is happy to be back to school!

I hope you're not getting sick of seeing Riley... I just love him! I was thinking back to when I first saw Rileys, and I'm pretty sure it was on Sparkle's blog. I've loved her artwork from back when I was a CTMH consultant and I used to see her posts on the Consultant artwork bulletin board (I'm not sure if she even knows this -- I didn't post their often -- I guess I was considered a "lurker").

I used Julee's Mojo Monday #76 sketch for this card. I love that sketch - I'm definitely using it again and again! When I first looked at it, I knew that I had a good idea of how I wanted my card to look. I decided to make a few of these as I'm getting together with some friends and we are doing a card swap. I won't tell you how long it took me to get my piercing straight, even with the ruled piercing template! I blame my allergies and sinus headache for that!

I stamped Riley twice, colored both with Copics, cut one out and popped him on top of the other. I added Cotton Candy Stickles to the bow and Taylor's Tiny Twinkles in the corners of the patterned paper square.

Thanks for looking! Hope you have a great weekend!
