Thanksgiving week Day 5

Good Morning hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and didn't over indulge too much!

As well as the food who also enjoyed the wine a little too much?

Well maybe my Riley and Company inspirational card today may ring some bells


I have used the the Riley & Co. Wine Glass and stamped it 3 times - oops by third glass I got a little clumsy. I added wine and colored the glasses with my Copic Markers. I then Stamped the Awesome Wine sentiment onto the same card - how truthful is that after a few glasses??? 😆

My card base was matted with wine colored card and a coordinating design paper. I matted my images with the same card and adhered it to my base, continuing my split wine to the bottom edge of the card.

Thank you for stopping by, and if you are looking for some R&R after over-indulging stick around and check out the Riley and Company Blog for more inspiration.  Or for more news about what the Moose and his pals are up to head on over to the company Facebook page

Thanksgiving Day!

Good Morning and Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

Today's inspiration is a very simple place card for the Thanksgiving table:


I used Turkey Riley stamp and colored him with my Copic Markers and matted him onto black card. I then printed the names of the people coming to dinner on my place cards. edged these with gold border stickers and use die-cut leaves to embellish the corner. A simple but nice touch to any dinner table.


Thank you for stopping by, now go and enjoy your dinner!

Thanksgiving Week Day 3

Good Morning it's day 3 of my Riley and Company Thanksgiving Inspiration and one more day to go until Turkey day. Mine is busy thawing in the kitchen ready to be roasted a lovely bronze color!

So what sides do you serve with your turkey? All the trimming and more. So much that you can't sit down without unbuttoning your pants? 

Well that's a good place to start my inspiration for my next card:



I have stamped the sentiment, inked it with distress inks and matted onto a coordinating design paper. Campfire Riley is the perfect stamp to team the sentiment with. 
I have colored him with Copic Markers and inked the card with distress ink and again matted it onto design paper.

I then chose some design paper with Thanksgiving type dishes on it and matted this onto my card blank. I cut 2 banners, one in the design paper used for matting and another in orange card. I embossed the latter with a leaf design than arranged these, my sentiment and image on my card.
