In order to play along, you need to use a Riley and Company image. Now, if you do not have any Riley images, be sure to check out Riley and Company Designs.   I am sure you will find something you will love! Our new release for 30+ funny bones begins on May 29th, so be sure to check out all the fun new stamps! 

For my card, I spritzed the background with some alcohol ink, then matted it with some card stock that looked like it had been "spritzed" already. I featured my little Rock Star, Riley the Moose. He looks like he is just having a great time rocking out!

Path of Positivity - Mid Month Post - Wisdom

It is time for the mid month post for our current challenge going on over at Path of Positivity. Our Theme this month is Wisdom. Hopefully you have been "WISE" enough to play along this month...LOL.

When this post publishes a day before my birthday. I want to say with each year I get wiser..and I am sure I do. We all learn new things every day which adds to our wisdom. Hopefully we don't forget the little things in life, one being TIME. We never know when our time will run out, so it is important to enjoy each and every day, for time truly is a gift.

The image I got to work with for my mid post is called "Pocket Watch." Perfect to keep track of those precious minutes. It is from IkesArt. If you are not familiar with her image, stop on by and say hi!. I know she would love it.













The sentiment is from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles.


So there still is plenty of time to play along! Share your talents and your wisdom. We would love to hear from you.

The Crafter's Cafe - Father Time


It is time for another challenge over at The Crafter's Cafe. Our theme this week is Time. So we would love to see you use a clock/watch in your projects. Our sponsor is Limited Runs and I got to work with the image called "Father Time."




I found the background on the web and printed it onto photo paper. I find with some of the pictures on the web, photo paper works better than just plain glossy paper. This will make a great Christmas or New Year's card.

So come along and play this week, I am sure you can find the "TIME". Would love to see what you create.
