Riley on vacation

Hey : ) ! Hope my friends in the US enjoyed a Happy 4th of July yesterday...and the rest of you are enjoying a great weekend!! Thanks to Carol, from Stamp Like Crazy, who tagged me...I'll be thinking of 7 random things to share with ya'all soon, but for now, hop on over to Carol's blog, read her fun & random facts! Lots of talent & creativity to see at Stamp Like Crazy....thanks for the tag Carol : ) !!!!
Today's birthday cards were made for 2 guys with July birthdays. They're tropical, but still manly (I think?? lol!). I was able to stamp a couple of Riley images from a friend (thanks Cami!) and they were the perfect coloring project for vacation! The first card features the stamp, Hula Riley, available at Eclectic Paperie. I used my Copics to color, and you can find a great selection of those, at great prices, at EP too. The sentiment is from the SU set, Think Happy Thoughts, and the DPs are from the SU Simply Scrappin Kit, Summer Days.
And this next one features the "Hammock Riley" stamp (available at Eclectic Paperie). The sentiment is from SU's set, Bitty Birthday, and punched out with the Round Tab punch.
That's it for today. Our trip to OHSU was very good (thanks for the prayers!)...the doctor had some great insight into Meg's illness, and we are hopeful that we're very close to a diagnosis and treatment plan!!
