Hey There Riley

I'm trying to play catch up today. My parents were in town visiting over the weekend. We had stamp club on Saturday while the guys did some repairs around the house. We had a great time hanging out with them, shopping, and taking them to some new restaurants. Ross even got out in the yard and starting cleaning it up. I'm so excited for Spring to come and for everything to start blooming. Anyhow, I have a cute, easy card to share today. I actually gave my mom a high five when we were in Hobby Lobby the other day because I was so thrilled to have finally found the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. I've been stalking the stores waiting for them to get it. So I had to give it a quick try today and I am in love. It gives fantastic texture to the card. It was also my first time using this Riley image. So stinkin' cute. He's stamped on watercolor paper then colored in with SU markers and a Niji waterbrush. The coffee cup and cupcake wrapper are covered in Stickles. My card measures 3.5 x 4.5! Thanks for stopping by.

Cute, Cute! I didn't order the swiss dot folder because I didn't think I'd want it. HA! Now I am going to be on a mission for it too!!
Had to giggle, I had my mother-in-law here this weekend so I'm playing catch up as well!

Yes, I have to agree with Danni. I didn't think I'd like this CB folder, but hadn't seen it used before. Oh my gosh, it's adorable on your card!! I love it! I love your soft colors on Riley, and the colors you chose for your card. It's just all around adorable.
