Riley Challenge

Hello! I am posting late today, we spent the weekend out of town and I am running behind on everything. I haven't played with my Riley images in a while and decided to play along with the Riley and Co. challenge this week. It's funny that I haven't colored one of these in a while. Every time Samantha is over here, she pulls out the Rileys because they are her absolute favorite images to play with. And this is one of my favorite Riley images too. It's perfect for fall and is fun to color. I followed the sketch on the Riley and Co. site, colored my image with Copic markers and used papers from DCWV. 

We spent the weekend in Gatlinburg, TN. My husband's business partner got married this weekend and that is where the wedding was. (I will have some photos on my photo blog later in the week.) I had a great time, met lots of new people and got to go shopping at some of my favorite stores. The weather was nice, even though it was on the cold side and on Saturday morning we even had some snow on the ground, not a lot though. I got to visit the Scrapbook Superstore and picked up some new papers, some embossing powders, some Sizzix dies and some embellishments. Then we visited my favorite tea store where I got some yummy Chocolate Mint, Banana, and Raspberry teas. I love shopping in there because the people that work in there are very knowledgeable. I usually pick out two teas on my own and then take their suggestions for a third flavor. So far, I have not been disappointed with anything that I have bought there. Today was back to work and trying to catch up on the mountain of laundry and pulling out more of my winter wardrobe. I'm cold!

What a cute card, I can see why they are a favorite, you can't help but smile looking at your card. Sounds like you had fun and I know about the cold, well maybe not as my son tells me. But it gets chilly here in TX. Stay warm.
