Riley on vacation- it's the big blog hop!

Hello!! I'm thrilled to say I'm taking part in this month's Riley & Co Blog Hop to celebrate the release of the "Riley on Vacation" collection which features 15 new Riley images and a set of Riley travel stickers.

If you didn't start at the beginning of this blog hop, you are now at the end! I'm the last stop of the blog hop so you might want to head on back to the beginning here to start the blog hop or visit here to purchase the new collection which is available right now!!

Make sure you leave a comment on all the DT members' blogs as you hop along from blog to blog and you'll be in with the chance of winning one of the new stamps that each DT member is giving away and that includes me! The more comments you leave, the more chance of winning!

I think I saved the best til last as far as the sneak peeks go. I think this is my favourite card of all my makes for the new release. It's Scuba Riley! I've made a little shaker card with glitter and beads. I coloured him with copics and paper pieced his swimming trunks. I used the seabed from the Mermaid Sophie image. I PC-generated the sentiment.

Close up! How cute does he look?!

Another close up! Papers by MME.

My final card for this release is Showgirl Sophie! How glam does she look?! I coloured her with copics, lyra pencil for ground shadow. I cut off the stamped piece of her head-dress to add a real feather. Papers are glittery and by DCWV. I added silver mirror board to add more glitz and some gorgeous bling!

Lots of glitter on her train and little outfit!

Hope you've enjoyed the blog hop and have enjoyed visiting my time as GDT for Riley & Co! x
