I had a lovely day in Manhattan yesterday despite the cold. Those cross-town winds were quite bitter! I started the day off paying my friend Ella a visit. She lives on 5th Avenue and 79th Street. She has one of the most amazing views of Central Park. I took this picture out of her kitchen window…
You can see the buildings on the other side of the park and of course the yellow taxi cabs. I also went over to the West Side to see my friends Jon and Mary. When I was in the cab on the way back over to the East Side we went past Lincoln Center. I took this picture out of the window of the cab. It’s Avery Fisher hall where the New York Philharmonic performs…
There really is so much to see and do in Manhattan and I love showing you little snippets of my day! When I got home last night I remembered that I didn’t have a card to post so I used this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch for inspiration…
Nice and simple which is just what I needed since I got home around 9:00! The base of my card is Coastal Cabana Card stock and tha background is a piece of Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper that I cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 so there is just a thin border around the card. A strip of Baked Brown Sugar is embossed with the hearts from the Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. The you is from the February Paper Pumpkin Kit and is backed with some Coastal Cabana that I punched out with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch. Stampin’ Dimensionals hold them to the strip of Baked Brown Sugar. My love is from the “Vintage” Expressions Thinlits Dies and is cut out from Baked Brown Sugar and adhered to the DSP with 2-Way Glue. A very simple card that I actually think would make a nice masculine one! I hope that you enjoyed my pictures form Manhattan and my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge. I appreciate you taking some time out of your day to spend with me and I hope that you have a wonderful Sunday! 🙂
