Riley! You may have met this cute-as-a-button character before, but if not, prepare to fall in love with this adorable Moose!
I'm so excited to be a moose-mate on the newly extended Riley design team, there are some talented stampers in this bunch, let me tell you! You can visit the Riley blog here and the Riley store here. Riley and Company are also on Facebook.

Riley is offered in gorgeous rubber (wood, cling or unmounted) and is almost too cute for words. I hope you'll enjoy seeing my Riley creations - and there will be blog candy for each release so you may win a Riley for your collection, yippee!

Today's Riley challenge is a colour combo from the wonderful Cindy - Aqua, Yellow and any shade of Brown. I've used Praying Riley for my card and added some flocking to the pom-pom on his little nightcap.

You might notice something new on my cards in the coming weeks - I did it...I finally caved and bought some Copic markers! I resisted for so long, but recently have been frustrated with the limitations of colouring with water-based markers - I'm in love already! I'm waiting for a set of 72 markers to arrive from America, but until then expect to see a lot of browns, grays and skin tones because I have a very limited collection!

We'd love to see you play along with the Riley and Company challenge (challenges happen every two weeks) if you upload to an online gallery, please use the keyword Riley0811 and be sure to head over to the Riley blog for the full list of designers inspiring you today!
