I don't know about where you are, but it is COLD here today! Last week I could still wear short sleeves and today I wore a long sleeved thermal knit shirt and still froze to death! I hate wearing a coat, I will wear a couple of shirts just to keep from wearing a jacket. I guess it is time for cold weather since we are closing out November. We sat down and made out Christmas shopping list tonight. So far we have exactly one present bought and a lot more to go. Thanks for stopping by tonight!

Banjo Playing Riley
Good evening! I found a new sketch challenge site and decided to play along. It is called Delightful Sketches and can be found here. While I was gone last week, I spent some time coloring with my niece Zoie and this was one of the first images she wanted to stamp and color. We each did our own version of Riley but she took off with hers before I could take a picture. I used the sketch at Delightful Sketches to make this card. I started with this plaid paper from DCWV and pulled the rest of my colors from there. Riley was stamped with Memento ink and colored with Copic markers onto Gina K paper. The belt stamp is from CTMH and was stamped with CTMH Desert Sand ink and then distressed with some powder from Making Memories. The buttons are some assorted buttons that were sitting in a jar on my desk, most are from American Crafts, I think. I used twine on the large button and the other buttons have very thin pieces of paper threaded through them. Thanks for all the comments on my last post and for the good wishes regarding the DT call, it really means a lot to me!
