Riley July Blog Hop!

WooHoo! Party Time! If you've been enjoying all the sneak peeks of the latest Riley release, and thinking "hey I want that stamp" well they are now available for purchase at Riley and Company!

But first make sure to visit all the Design Team Members Blogs, and leave a comment for your chance to win a new Riley! All comments left before Friday July 23, at 10 pm est will be entered for a chance to win!

For my first card, I used the new Beachball Riley, but today he's a she! Yep it's so easy to turn Riley into Sophie. I just stamped him onto white, and using my fine tip marker, made a cute top with a ruffle on the bottom!

The card base is black, with a layer of regal rose embossed with the d'vine swirl EF, edges sponged. The top panel is dp. And the border is made with an EK punch and black glitter paper!

Beachball Riley/Sophie was stamped on white, cut out and added to a very vanilla oval. Her shorts and top are paper pieced. The beachball is covered with crystal effects and the glasses with a copic atyou spica. The starfish at the top was made with an EK punch.

I also used these DTGD challenges:

This is the new Wagon Riley. He's so cute. I stamped him onto white and coloured him with copics. Then I cut out the image.

The card base is chocolate chip, with a layer of basic grey dp-mellow. The main panel is a mega curved rectangle nestie. The grass and sky are both basic grey dps. The flowers were made with the MS edge punch. I also punch a red piece and cut out the flowers. The centers are gems. The sun was made with the inverted scallop nestie and a circle punch.

I popped Wagon Riley up on dimensionals.

I also used these DTGD challenges:
DTGD10notimetostamp passion for pattern
DTGD10gbedwright strut ur stuff

This card was made using the new Sailboat Riley! I stamped him onto white and coloured with copics and then paper pieced his sail and the water. The main image was cut with the circle nesties and backed with an inverted scallop circle nestie.

The card base is so saffron and then a layer of SU welcome neighbour dp. The white panel is embossed with the heart EF from the love language set.

I popped up the main image panel, and finished it off with the hearts, and a tiny heart gem on the mast.

Riley pulling his wagon in a scene - I've got to try something like that one. Patterned backgrounds sometimes intimidate me, this tones it right down and connects it to the main image. Thank for the idea.

[url=http://www.pi7.ru/soft/1549-erlend-lu-luchshaya-strana-v-mire-audiokniga.html ]Почему вы считаете, что женщина чтото должна мужчине? [/url]
Моя соседка - лежачая больная. У нее есть 2 сына, младшему 33 года, живет и прописан у нее. Старший живет отдельно и прописан в общежитии, в свое время он получил там комнату. У соседки 2-х комнатная квартира. 3 года назад младший сын стал давить на мать, чтобы приватизировать жилище. Она была в очень плохом состоянии. Ей была нужна постоянная помощь, а сын заявил, что в случае в случае если она не согласится приватизировать квартиру и не откажется от участия в приватизации, то он от нее съедет и никак помогать не будет. После его бесконечных уговоров и угроз дама сделала то, чего хотел младший сын. В итоге: квартира всецело приватизирована на него, старший сын обиделся, что мать лишила его наследства и перестал с ним общаться. С младшим сыном случилось что-то непонятное. Раньше он очень заботился о матери, а сейчас даже не разговаривает с ней. Даже купить лекарства и продукты он отказывается. Соседку по-человечески жалко. Она впала в ужасную депрессию, говорит, что потерял свой блеска обоих сыновей. И еще младший сын в последствии такого, как она пригрозила ему, что подаст на него в суд на алименты, пригрозил продать квартиру по дешевке выходцам из южных стран СНГ. Теперь соседка хочет расприватизировать квартиру через суд, мотивируя тем, что в момент подписания согласия на приватизацию она была очень больна и фактически не отвечала за свои поступки и что сделала она это под угрозами младшего сына. Возможно ли это? И может ли действительно сын продать квартиру с прописанной там матерью. Знаю, что по суду ее не выпишут.
