Riley is off for adventures!

I can not believe it is already time for another Hanna Stamps release. Seriously, November just flew by! How did it get to be December 1st already?! Three new stamp sets and two new Rileys are releasing this Friday.

Hanna Stamps is releasing two new Rileys this month (Van and Trailer Rileys). I had to use them together, of course, so my image is really long. They are so adorable! I stamped my images first and colored them with copic markers. Then, I cut my card base from kraft cardstock (5x7 inches). I stitched my patterned papers to my card. I stamped my sentiment and then, I punched some holes to thread my ribbon through. I attached my ribbon with brads. I matted my image and added it to my card using foam adhesive. I finished off my card with a row of brads above my image.

I updated my sale post. I decided to just always post stuff there so it's all in one place. Just thought I would mention this because I added my SU stamp cubes to the list.

I've been thinking about changing my blog provider. Anyone have any info or experience they would like to share? I've always wondered if I would like typepad better than blogger. Anyone ever used both and have a preference? Seriously, I would love to hear about your experiences. Would you all follow my blog over to a new address? I am also worried that if I switch, I will lose some of my readers who won't want to bother with following me to a new blog. Hmm. Not sure what I am doing yet. Just doing a little researching.

Have a fabulous Monday!

How cute! Love the Rileys...

Of course we would ALL follow you over to a new blog address... I have not had a blog in about 5 years, but I do know many people with blogs- Typepad seems to be the preference- not sure why though...

LOVE this new Riley card, Niki! I have been contemplating a new blog provider as well. I don't know much about any providers, and more than that I am so illiterate as to operating the tech stuff, no matter what provider I use! LOL Let me know what you chose, I am very interested in all info! Take good care!
