Life Is A Circus!

Riley Circus Tent wm

Hi everyone,

Well it is that time again! Today starts the beginning of the sneak peeks of the new Riley stamps that will be available from Riley and Company this coming Thursday 26th May. This is a massive release, our biggest ever! We have 16 new Riley images; 22 accessory images and 21 sentiments, I can’t wait for you to see these awesome new stamps.

What would a circus be without a Ringmaster so to start of my sneak peeks my first card uses Ringmaster Riley. The circus tent (big top) was created using my cricut machine and the carousel cartridge.

Here is the inside of my card, the first act for this circus is a cute seal act. I love how the sentiments work so well with the images!
