Sports day

Good afternoon the sun is shining and my doors are open! Thank goodness we have a break in the rain.

It's hump day and we are half way through the new release at Riley and Company. Today It's sports day, remember the adorable dress up Riley's from the last new release - well we have some great summer outfits and activities stamps including sports. So I have dressed our little buddy up for sports day.

First activity is soccer or as we Brits call it football:

I colored Riley and his shorts using alcohol markers - adding a stripe to his shorts so he's in my hubby's favorite team colors. I then printed out some soccer related design paper and cut it into a bookmark - I matted it onto red card to give it more stability Riley was glued in place and I stamped 3 soccer balls which I have placed to make it look as if he is heading them. I punched a hole in the top of the bookmark and made a tassel from baker's twine.

Next we'll have a nice game of golf and meet up at the 19th hole for a little apres drink

Again colored with Alcohol makers, I added a cap so he can see his ball without the sun getting in his eyes. I colored the ball and club - these accessories all have matching dies which makes it so much better than having to fussy cut such tiny items! I printed a design paper and typed out my sentiment and printed it onto the paper. Matting this with a golf ball paper I added the club and ball.

Onto my 3rd sports related card - fishing!

Riley looks fab in his "Gone Fishing" tee which along with his hat, rod and fish were colored with my markers. I then matted my grey card base with some camo design paper and green card. I typed out some of the lyrics from one of my favorite country singers and matted this with the grey card. Riley was dressed and added to the card along with his rod and trout!
