Wow what a release - and a blog hop to boot!

Good morning! 

What a week I have planned for you! It's Riley and Company's first release this year and they have some amazing and funny stamps that are about to hit their store along with something new!!!!

Not only is Riley & Co releasing some stunning new 'things' they are joining this month with Card Maker magazine for a fab blog hop - you can find all the details on their blog:

So if you've come here from Sandye's blog  welcome, have a read, leave some love and your next hop is to Kat's Blog.

It was thought that Riley and his friends were a bit naked and it being winter and all they decided to warm them up a bit. 

Introducing 2 new Riley characters and a wardrobe of clothing and accessories for them!

 I will be posting every day this week showing all the new releases but for now on to my showcase today - do you remember the paper dress up dolls we had as kids? 

Well take a look:

I started by making a box to house everything 

Next came the main man and some of his brand new outfits:

These were all colored with alcohol markers - I then fussy cut each piece out leaving tabs on the clothing so Riley could wear them. I then used re-positional glue dots on the accessories so they could be changed out.

And just to bring him to life I used a crafting CD I have to make backgrounds for each of the outfits:

Meet Highland Riley:

Snow fun Riley

Irish Riley

and last but not least Ice Skating Sophie

These are just some of the 57 items of clothing and accessories that are being released today!

These aren't the only release either -head over to the store to see them all and check out the deals on offer:
