Safari Riley....and some BIG news!!

Good evening! Hope everyone is well!
I have some BIG news to share without further adieu, here it is:

I was chosen to be the Guest Designer for Hanna Stamps for February & March 2010!!

It is such an honor to be chosen out of the talented pool of ladies that tried out! I am looking forward to getting to know the Hanna Stamps DT ladies!
I had some time today to play along with this weeks Hanna Stamps Challenge over at SCS: Distressing HSC82. As the title hints, the challenge was to use distressing on your card. I inked up my brand-new Safari Riley and colored him while I was at the Orthodontist's Office - my dd got her braces put on!
I pulled out my stash of Basic Grey Archaic along with some Mellow Moss and Chocolate Chip papers. I inked all of the pages using VersaMagic Chalk Ink in Jumbo Java. The sentiment was computer generated and punched with a SU oval punch. Riley and some of the 'ground' are popped up using foam tape. I hand-drew the tree on Chocolate Chip and cut out. I punched the branches using a Martha Stewart Fern punch in Mellow Moss and BG paper, inked them and layered. See below for a close-up of the tree - I am really happy with how it turned out!
Here are the Copics I used:

Thanks for stopping by tonight! ~Tori
