Another Riley and a cute Beach card

Well Santa Moose is finished. What do you think? Isn't he cute? One more to go. Lots of Stickles and a EP I bought at Stampfest from Custer's Last Stamp called Winter Wonderland. It is at the base of the chimney. I nice smooth white with a touch of glitter. Hand cut that tiny little holly leave. Did a lot of those back in my Kindergarten aide days. I'm liking all the dots with these images. I'm getting faster at it. And am putting all the Nestabilities layers I have already cut out to use finally. I have been enjoying the last couple of days creating. I went to Target on Monday to pick up a ticket at Ticket master at the Mall for Robin and they had all this plastic type expanding file envelopes in lots of sizes for a Dollar. So had to buy a couple and came home to organize yet some more. Cleared the clutter right off my desk in a hurry. I may have to go back and get a few more. They fit my needs perfectly and the price LOL what a deal. The second card I put together this morning uses feet paper clips I got in a PIF package from one of my groups. Been trying to use them on a card but just couldn't come up with anything. VSN sent me this stamp for being published in the July Issue. Stamped it in Versa mark and then chalked it. I went from not sure about the image to loving it. Found this background in my box. I have no idea what it is but I think it is one that didn't turn out right. I throw nothing away. You never know and see it worked perfect for this card. Next I ripped a piece of beige card stock and used a EP I bought from Sparkle and Sprinkle a year or so ago and never used. It's called Beachcomber and it is in their textured line. Makes great sand on this color of card stock. Added a few tiny shells I picked up at the beach. Such tiny tiny clam shells. Perfect for these new postal rules. They barely stick up. So there you have my days creations. I must go to work sadly and will have to stop playing until tomorrow .
