Well, it was a true Monday yesterday. It pretty much rained all day and is supposed to for the rest of the week. After the beautiful weekend that we had there really is no reason to complain though! Work was work, not much exciting to report there. After work I had some dinner and then came home and made my card for today. I went to Sandy’s for her new catalog launch. It’s always fun to see everyone and catch up. The rest of the evening was uneventful, which can also be a good thing! As promised I have some more of the pictures from Sunday to share with you today!
Before we left Brooklyn we found this large area where you could play basketball and all kinds of other sports. As we walked through we found one of my favorite things in the world, a swing set! The best part was it was big enough for adults!
So there I am being a kid on the swing set! I love the fact that all of buildings are behind me too!
Here is a little selfie of Kim and I when we got on the boat, a little windy but it felt nice!
A view from the back of the boat looking downtown. That’s the Manhattan Bridge and then the Brooklyn Bridge.
A little further up and you can see the Freedom Tower.
The two tall buildings are on left, the Empire State Building and to the right the Chrysler Building.
Thats the UN Building and the tall black one is where a friend of mine lives. To the left is the Chrysler Building again.
It really was a fun day and I hope that you enjoyed all of the pictures. I’ll see if I can sneak in some more later in the week, I did take a lot of pictures!
Before I get to today’s post I wanted to let you know this week’s specials from Stampin’ Up!
Now on to the business at hand, my card today is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch…
I used a lot of different colors, all of which are in the new All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack. My card begins with a base of Mossy Meadow Card Stock. For the background I embossed a piece of Pistachio Pudding with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder using the Texture Boutique. The strip of paper across the bottom is a piece from the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack. Following the sketch there are two diagonal strips of Daffodil Delight and a strip of Mossy Meadow on the left. My flower and leaves are from the Flower Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set. The flower is stamped in Blushing Bride for the base, Strawberry Slush for the next layer and finally Daffodil Delight for the center. The leaves are stamped in Mossy Meadow and they are all cut out using the Flower Fair Framelits. My greeting comes from the Let Your Hair Down Host(ess) Stamp Set and is also stamped in Mossy Meadow. To finish off the card I glued three of the 2013-2015 In-Color Sequins on the left. I’m loving the colors and the Flower Patch stamps give such nice crisp images and the Framelits make them super easy to cut out. I also like the layering! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. I’m so happy that you stopped by and I hope that you have a nice Tuesday! 🙂
