Riley's Winter Fun

Because the words on this card are difficult to read, I've put my comments in blue and Riley's words in brown. I was not good at getting Nate a Riley card after Christmas. When I finally got to making one, I had several months of fun to share so made a book!
The cover was embellished with liquid applique and puffed up with my heating tool to look like snow.
Riley is on his red tractor again!
Hi Nate, do you remember me?
All the stuff under the tree was colored, cut out and put under the tree - some on pop dots.
I got new skis, a hockey stick and a for-real cammo outfit.
Sophie got new knitting needles, lots of yarn and a new pink four-four for her ballet classes.

Here I am on my new skis! Sophie made my hat and scarf. Pretty nice, huh?

Most of the events were put on backgrounds and added to the book pages without a lot of embellies.
While I was outside playing, Sophie made us some muffins.
When I came back in, Sophie was working on another scarf for me and I had hot cocoa and a warm muffin. Yummy!
When I went to play hockey, I didn't wear my hat and scarf like Sophie told me to.
After hockey some of us made a snowman. I put my hat on, but it was too late.
Sophie was right again.
Don't you just hate when that happens?

What about that Super Bowl - way to go Steelers! YEAH!

For Valentine's Day I got Sophie some chocolates in a fancy heart box.
I guess she liked them. She ate ALL of them in one day.

But then --

She worked very hard to lose all that extra weight.
It was very funny watching her do aerobics!

Guess I should not have laughed at her:-(

St. Patrick's day was great. I found the 4-leaf clover and won the pot of gold!
Sophie danced a jig wearing her green four-four.
Hmmm -- why do they call that thing a four-four?

Bet you can hardly see me in my cammo!
Maybe I can hide from Sophie when she has chores for me to do.
Time for bed now. Good night, Nate. Sleep tight.
Your friend,
Riley Moose
Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed this card!
