Just for Kicks

Hi everyone,

If you haven't heard already there is big changes happening at both Riley and Company and Cornish Heritage Farms ... both these companies are owned by Tanya Kostynuk. Recently Tanya closed down her bricks and mortar store Stamper's Ink so she could devote more time to her online companies.... which included
 Riley and Company (Riley; Funny Bones and Inspirations) and Cornish Heritage Farms (CHF and Thomas Kinkade). 

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 the Riley and Company blog you will also notice some changes!!!!!!!! 

First up we have a new name ..... The Ink Spot and we have prettied the blog up a little with a new banner etc so check it out!

But wait there is more!!!!!!

If you read the wording under the Title on our blog header it says .... Six great stamp lines in one fun place!

Well you know about Riley and Company; Funny Bones; Inspirations; Cornish Heritage Farms; Thomas Kinkade .... what's the other one?????

Introducing .......

Prickley Pear Stamps 

Yes Tanya has just purchased this company which will be joining the line up on the The Ink Spot Blog.

So now I have given you all that info, let's get onto this week's challenge!

For our challenge today our hostess is Heather. To celebrate the Design Teams combining, Heather has challenged us to Pair any Riley Stamp with any CHF Stamp.

When I went searching the Cornish Heritage Farms web site I found this fun Just for Kicks Digital Stamp which works well with Soccer Riley

The base of my card is a Pull Card using the new Oval Pull Card die set designed by  Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. This die set will be released at the end of the week. 

Don't forget to check out the Riley and Company Design Team's cards on their blogs:
