Well, despite the fact that it was a rainy day here my friend Heather and I ventured into Manhattan. She said that she wanted to get a coat and I haven’t been shopping in forever so I suggested that we go to Macy’s in Herald Square. If you can’t find it there chances are that you don’t need it! LOL! It is after all the world’s biggest department store. We had a nice day shopping and there were really good sales too! I got a coat, some sweaters, a sweat jacket and pants. Heather got two coats, she couldn’t decide between them! I took a few pictures, the first one is inside on the first floor. It’s where most of the holiday decoration are around Christmas.
The next one is a view down 34th Street towards Madison Square Garden.
And the last one is a selfie of us under the awing outside on 34th Street.
After we finished with our shopping we headed uptown and met my friend Kim and had some pizza before we started back home. A very nice day indeed!
After a little break the Paper Players are back! This week the challenge is to use the Chalkboard technique…
I don’t usually veer away from standard card sizes but I did today. My card starts off with a base of Soft Sky Card Stock that I cut to 7″ x 6 1/2″ and folded. I stamped the Hardwood Background Stamp in Soft Suede on Soft Suede and used my Paper Trimmer to separate the planks, they form the frame around my chalkboard. The image is from the Perfect Couple Stamp Set and the greeting is from the Yippee-Skippee Stamp Set, they are both heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and I used my sponge and some Craft Ink whiten up the black. Not too involved but really fun none the less! I love the Hardwood Stamp cut apart and used as a frame. I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge. Thank you for visiting, have a great Monday! 🙂
