Monday morning so soon… why do you spirit away my weekend?! It was a good weekend, but way too short as always. I had a nice morning in Manhattan yesterday. Breakfast with Kim was fun and yummy as always and I got to see my friends Isabella, Diego and Bettina which is always nice. I got some exercise in walking about 30 blocks even though it was quite chilly. The train ride in and back was quiet, Sunday is always a nice day to take the train. There are usually a lot less people and they seem calmer on Sunday for some reason. I’m starting the day off right with some delicious Cadbury’s Whole Nut Chocolate! LOL! I love chocolate! What all did you guys do this weekend?
I have a non-challenge card for you today. I had seen a card with a similar concept in a magazine but I put my own spin on it. The base of the card is Riding Hood Red Card Stock. The background is created with the Cloudy Day Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and some Baja Breeze. I left about 1 1/4″ alone along the bottom as I put the card stock in sideways. The little instant pictures are made using a backing of Whisper White and Basic Black for the bottom one, Basic Gray for the middle one and Baja Breeze for the top one. The grey and blue are stamped with the hot air ballon form the Spring Sampler Stamp Set in Riding Hood Red and Not Quite Navy. For the greeting I used my favorite stamp from the Make a Wish Stamp Set, stamped in Not Quite Navy and cut out with the Ovals Collection Framelits Dies. The instant pictures and the greeting are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I like the instant pictures on the card a lot. The three different colors on them make it look like the pictures are developing. I hope that you enjoyed today’s card. Thanks very much for visiting and I hope that you have a super day!
