Happy Son-day

I have been so remiss here in blog-land. But, I completed a big project and feel my mojo returning!
The air has turned crisp here in Western New York and I am feeling it! Today, the sun is shining and DH is out in the yard while I am getting crafty!

First thing I finished (hopefully there will be more today) is this little Riley card. The challenge over there is to use scraplings. After reading the description, I said "Aha" and then made this darling card! Here is where you can find the definition and the challenge!

My card base is 2.5 inches wide and 4.25 inches tall. The leaves do hang over though! I used Kraft stock for Riley and then paper pieced white envelopes and the blue mail bag. Antlers and hooves were colored with my Bic's and pink distress marker in the ears and nostrils. The stamps and dies are from a*muse studio.

I am happy to be getting ack into the swing of things and will get back into the swing of luv-leaving this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

So cute, April! What a great idea to use kraft going to have to 'lift' that idea! Love the die cuts. Super job.
