Good morning! I had a lovely day in the city yesterday with my friend Kim. We went to the diner for some breakfast, I had pancakes and they were delicious. We then headed to the subway to make our way down to Soho and wandered around for a couple of hours. I picked up my belated birthday gift for my friend Danielle and we had some yogurt from the Chobani store. I choose figs and walnuts with honey and they give it to you in a glass bowl that you get to keep. We wandered around some more and I got a picture of the Freedom Tower that will be completed soon. After that we went to Washington Square Park. The park used to be really rundown and not a very nice place to go but they have cleaned it up nicely. I took a picture of the arch and if you look you can see the Empire State Building through the middle. For lunch we went to an organic hummus place called nanoosh. I had a hummus and falafel bowl that was quite tasty and Kim had one with chicken that was also good. Before I headed home we got my car and picked up Kim’s friend Maggie and went to the Target at Riverside Plaza. It’s nice to go there with the car because then they don’t have to lug all of the packages home on the bus or pay for a cab. All in all it was a very nice day! Below are the two pictures I mentioned…
For today’s card I wanted to try the Just Add Ink challenge, just add snowflakes, for this week. I also wanted a simple card with a little bit of a different color combination. The base of the card is Cherry Cobbler Card Stock. For the background I used the World Map Stamp and stamped it in Costal Cabana on Whisper White. The snowflake is from the Festive Flurry Stamp Set and is stamped in Smoky Slate and cut out with the Festive Flurry Framelits Dies. I choose the greeting from the Joy to the World Stamp Set, stamped in Cherry Cobbler, because I thought it went really well with the map stamp. A little fussy cutting with my Paper Snips and some 2-Way Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals to hold the snowflake and the greeting to the card and it’s finished. If you like a little fussy cutting this would be a nice easy card to mass produce for your Holiday cards. Thanks you very much for stopping by to see my Just Add Ink card for the just add snowflakes challenge. I hope you enjoyed my Manhattan pictures and card. Have a wonderful Sunday! 🙂
