Well, it was another gorgeous weekend here on Long Island! Sunny but not too hot just how I like it! I got lots of crafty things done yesterday and spent some time outside enjoying the weather. It was just too nice to be indoors all day! I hope the weather was nice by you and you got some outside time in too! Did you all enjoy the Creation Station Blog Tour yesterday? I hope that you got some inspiration for your new catalog goodies! I really need to order some of those Gift Card Holders, they are neat! Today I have some pictures for you! I did manage to take a few pictures while I was in Manhattan on Saturday. They are not very exciting but a little glimpse of what I get to see. The first one is of the elevated pedestrian walkway at Hunter College…
Pretty cool how it just goes across Lexington Avenue! The next one is of Bloomingdale’s which I’m sure you have all heard of…
Another Lexington Avenue Staple! It’s funny because before I went into the store I pictured it much bigger than it is. Next I took a really cool picture from under the Citibank Building…
It’s one of my favorite buildings in the city. It’s on stilts! If you Google it you can see a lot of neat information about the construction. They had some problems in the beginning. I also like how the sun is reflecting off of the building next to it!
Remember the Blog Candy winner Karen? Well, she was so sweet and sent me a thank you card and a little gift! I love them both and think they are amazing! Here is the card and cute notepad using the Stamp Set A Happy Hooray that she won!
Thank you so much Karen! What a nice surprise to get in the mail! 🙂
Now we are on to today’s post. It’s for the Paper Players 200 challenge! Wow! I have been participating since challenge #78 and haven’t missed one! The ladies have chosen their favorites from the past 200 and you can then pick one of them! I went with the one that Nance choose…
I picked it because it was before I started playing! Yes, I used the Star Framelits again! LOL! I just can’t get enough of them! My card base is Basic Black Card Stock. The background is some Silver Foil Sheet that I embossed with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The two stars are from the Be the Star Stamp Set and are stamped in Bermuda Bay and cut out with the Stars Framelits. I cut out a piece of Vellum Card Stock with the Circles Collection Framelits to back the star and make it stand out a bit more. My greeting is form the Pictogram Punches Stamp Set and is stamped in Bermuda Bay and cut out with the Project Life Card & Labels Framelits. I punched out another piece of Silver Foil Sheet with the star from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack to go over the star on the greeting. All of the elements are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really am loving the Star Framelits (promise I’ll put them aside for bit! LOL!) and the Bermuda Bay with the silver and black is a great combination, don’t you think?! I really hope that you enjoy my card for this week’s Paper Players 200 anniversary sketch challenge. Thank you very much for coming by to see what I’ve been up to and I hope you have a great Monday! 🙂
