Love Friday! I said that once on a card this week already didn’t I?! LOL! Well, I really do love Friday! My trip into Manhattan last night was nice except that it has gotten warm enough for the Subways to start to have that lovely pungent odor again! I got to my friend Ella’s and she had gotten me a nice slice of pizza with big chunks of garlic, yum! We had some wine and caught up. She is such a great person. I did manage to snap a picture of the 6 train as it was pulling in. Going into the city at 6:00PM is always fun. You have to fight your way through the crowds that are heading to Penn Station, it’s not an easy task!
See all of that yuck in the middle of the tracks? I think that’s what gives the Subway it’s signature smell!
Now on to today’s card which is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge from Margaret Moody…
I always like to have some masculine birthday cards on hand and the new Traveler Stamp Set* is great for those. My card is sort of inspired by my train rides last night too. The base is Lost Lagoon* Card Stock, a new favorite of mine! I stamped the locomotive from the Traveler Stamp Set* in Lost Lagoon* on Very Vanilla and backed it with a piece of Basic Black. The strip of paper is from the Modern Medley Designer Series Paper Pack and is also backed with some Basic Black. I choose my greeting from the Label Love Stamp Set, also stamped it in Lost Lagoon* and punched it out with the Artisan Label Punch. A piece of Basic Black is cut out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits and backs the greeting. They are adhered to each other and the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sketch provided a great layout for a nice and simple masculine card don’t you think?! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge. Thank you for stopping by and make sure that you have an amazing Friday! 🙂
