March Madness...Riley and Company Blog Hop!!!

March Madness Riley and Company new stamp release!!!  Oops, I about forgot...if you are arriving here from the Riley and Company blog , Tanya, you are in the right place.  If you just arrived here because you are one of my regular visitors you will want to go back to the Riley and Company blog to start at the beginning!!!  I have two really fun images to share with you tonight, Cheerleader Riley/Sophie:

If you don't really follow the NCAA Basketball you might not realize that March Madness refers to the series of college basketball tournaments that make up the Final 4 games.  A big deal if you live in areas such as Kansas which is home to KU , Kansas JayHawks  or in the case of Nebraska we have the football Huskers but the Nebraska women have gone undefeated all season until last week-end and are top seed in the women's NCAA division.    To honor these teams we have Cheerleader Riley/Sophie to lead the teams to Victory!!!

Next I have Umbrella Riley and I for one am thrilled to see anything that has to do with rain after an endless winter of snow LOL:

I just love Umbrella Riley and decided to make him in springy happy colors. 

There are 4 more Riley stamps and a re-release of the wood floor, brick wall, and the What Riley would Say Words stamps tonight.  As soon as the blog hop is under way the stamps will be available.

Be sure to leave a comment on each of the DT members blogs for a chance to win a new unmounted release stamp of your choice.  You will need to check back on Friday or Saturday for my winner announcement right here on my blog.  You will have 48 hours to let me know your email address so Tanya can send you your stamp.

Now you have got to go check out what Laurie has to show you.  Believe me it will be worth the trip as she is awesome and soooo creative. 

Thanks for stopping by

Cathy
