Animal Antics

Hi everyone

Before we get onto this week's challenge, we would like to introduce you to two new Design Team members for The Ink Spot Design Team who you will see posting their creations to this blog from time to time. Please welcome ..... Angji Pruente and Delores Sanders, I am sure you will love seeing their wonderful creations.

Well it is that time again .... our Design Team Challenge Time! This week our challenge is hosted by Kelly.

Kelly has given us the theme .... Animal Antics!  Any CHF/Riley stamp using an animal - extra credit for funny cards!

For her card today Kelly has used Riley and Company's Balloon Animal Riley.

More Exciting News

Happy New Year to you all!

A new year is the ideal time for us all to make changes and start something new and that is exactly what we are doing here at Riley and Company.

Tanya who is the owner of Riley and Company recently closed her bricks and mortar stamp store, so that she could spend more time with her online companies which included
 Riley and Company (Riley; Funny Bones & Inspirations) and Cornish Heritage Farms

In the past Riley and Company and Cornish Heritage Farms have had two different Design Teams.  From the January 1st 2016 the two Design Teams have been combined and this blog will be our new home!

If you check out this blog you will also notice some changes!!!!!!!!
