Welcome to the Big Top!



FOR THE JULY RILEY HOP, CLICK HERE. COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED FOR THE MAY BLOG HOP!

It's time! Welcome to the Riley and Company blog hop! The new Riley release is live right now - visit the Riley store here to purchase all your favourite Riley stamps. With 16 images, sentiments and accesories, this is the biggest Riley release ever!

The design team are hopping, bringing you ever more amazing samples of all the adorable images. To start at the start of the hop please visit the Riley and Company blog here. Read on for your chance to win a free Riley stamp!
I saved two of my favourite stamps from this release to share last. This is Seal Tricks Riley! Isn't he cute? The papers are from Lime Twist - Life of the Party by MME.
Inside I've used a few images from the wonderful accesories set also released tonight. Alright, ready for some more Moose madness?!

For my second card I've used Carousel Riley...
Sweet right? Riley is coloured with Copics and I've used Sparkle n Soft flocking on the horses mane and tail. The sentiment is a cute one - and it also works well with a gorgeous lion image released tonight. The sketch for this card comes from this months SFYTT. The papers for this card are Cosmo Cricket Pixie-licious.
Inside I have used the banner image included in the accessories set!

Ok - ready to win some rubber?! Just leave a comment on this post to be in to win your choice of any of the new Riley images! I'll draw the winner tomorrow at 10pm EST (2pm in New Zealand). For even more chances to win, be sure to leave a comment on all the Moose Mate blog hop posts tonight!
