Hello there! How nice to see you today! I hope your weekend is turning out to be a good one. Mine is pretty good so far. I had a lovely time in Manhattan yesterday. It was so nice to wake up and be in the city already and not have to drive in. I had a nice relaxing morning with Kim and then went to see my friends Jim & Diane. After that I met Kim for some lunch at the Shake Shack. They have really good burgers, shakes and fries, you need to be bad every once in a while right?!?! We wandered over to BestBuy for a bit and then went back to her apartment and watched a little TV. I came home and finished up some crafty projects before relaxing with a book for a bit before bed. A very nice day indeed. When I got to Manhattan I’m usually on the Upper East side and find myself on Lexington Avenue a lot. I took this picture of Butterfield Market. They have been there for a long time and they have some really tasty treats inside. If you ever find yourself in the are you should definitely stop in for some goodies!
I find that I need a quick simple card every once in a while just to say hello, how are you. The See Ya Later Stamp Set from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog is perfect for those cards. I also wanted to see if I could make a card and not use 20 products! LOL! Here is what I came up with. My card base is Basic Black Card Stock. I stamped the greeting on the background of Smoky Slate from the See Ya Later Stamp Set** in Basic Black. My sun is a piece of Crushed Curry that I cut out with the Starburst Framelits Dies. I used the Word Bubbles Framelits to cut out my clouds and adhered them with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the way the cut outs mirror the stamp and the bright pop of Crushed Curry says it all! So what do you think? Pretty neat for a simple card. I hope you enjoyed it and my little Saturday recap. Thank you for visiting and have a super Sunday! 🙂
