I Simply Adore Riley!

It's the weekend!!! Woo Hoo!!! 
and I am having SOOO much time getting cleaned/organized crafty today :) 
ALL of our Christmas decorations have been put away! and now with the huge tree in storage, I am trying to reclaim my crafty spot!!! Kiddos want the extra space in the living room for their new trunks, race tracks, etc, but this mama needs her big crafty table back so she can start using her sewing machine  and needs more space! It's hard to create in just 18inches of space, lol! 
Hmmm, I'm thinking that we may have to re-do the whole living area, just rearrange all the furniture... easy-peasy, right?! hee hee... and the kids bedroom... oh, how it never ends, lol! 

I created a fun little Riley card this morning :) 
and I used these challenges for it: 
- The Ribbon Carousel Challenge #34: Anything goes!
- Crazy 4 Challenges #118: Use Something New
- Card Makin' Mamas Challenge: Use Something New
(My "something new" is the ribbon and flower button.)

I used Stamping Riley to make another Valentine's Day card :)

Have I mentioned how much I love to paper piece?!
Never-mind that it not only saves my Copics from wear/tear - it's also the perfect way to use up all of my little scraps! and I am a huuuge fan of that :)

Well, I better get back to getting crafty cleaning/organizing!
Wish me luck ;)
and enjoy the rest of your weekend!!! xo
