Fun Fall Riley














I had two cards to make/send to two special people. One is my niece Lynda who won, for the second year in a row, "Teacher of the Year" at her school in Florida. I am so happy for her and she is most deserving of the honor. The other is my grandson who has "stuck by the stuff" and mowed enough lawns this summer to open a savings account. I'm very proud of him and wanted to send him a little something to add to it. So, my Riley card is going to go to one of them for sure. I am still loving Basic Grey's "Mellow" that I picked up at Michael's. I even went back and bought a second one. Riley is so cute sitting with the pumpkins, and I slid him into my new Sizzix die-cut envelope from SU that works fine in my CB. I can see me using this a lot. The DP has a touch of blue in it, so I incorporated Bashful Blue with PTI's Dark Chocolate. My pumpkin is Tangerine Tango, and I sponged it a bit to cut down on the bright tangerine color. The leaves are my Martha Stewart punch. My ribbon is Pumpkin Pie from SU. Hope you like it. It was fun to make. Will be back with another project soon.
