Hi there! How was the weekend?! Mine was great! Saturday I was in Manhattan visiting with my friend Kim and her sister Angie and brother Michael. We wandered around China Town and Little Italy. It was quite busy down there, I think because they said it would rain on and off all day but as it turned out it didn’t . It was a very pleasant day, not overly sunny and comfortable. I have some pictures from my outing for you. The first one is of the sign on Mulberry Street for Little Italy…
As you can see from the sign China Town has taken over a lot! We stopped in a bar for a drink and also did some Limoncello shots, what else would you do in Little Italy?!
That’s me, Kim, Michael and Angie! As we were walking around I saw this man with a cat perched on his head! Only in NY my friends!
If you gave him a dollar you could take his picture, nothing in the city is free! I wonder how much money he makes a day?!
I’ll have some more pictures for you tomorrow so be sure to come back and check them out! I don’t know if I can top the cat one though! LOL!
It’s Monday once again and that means that it’s time for the Paper Players challenge! This week Sandy asks us to use buttons on our project…
I decided that I would use my buttons in place of sequins on the card. My card begins with a base of Blushing Bride Card Stock. For the background I used a piece of Lost Lagoon and adhered a strip of the Flower Pot Designer Series Paper down the left side. A strip of Gold Sequin Trim is adhered around the back before I mounted the background to the base. To create my tag I used my ruler to mark of the back and then my Paper Snips and 1/4″ Circle Punch. All of the stamped images and greeting are from the Flower Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the leaves in Garden Green and Mossy Meadow right on to the tag. The flowers are stamped in Tangerine Tango and Crushed Curry and cut out with the Flower Fair Framelits. The greeting is stamped in Night of Navy. I adhered the flower pieces and then the tag to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My buttons are from the Brights and Regals Designer Buttons and are adhered to the card with Multi-Purpose Glue. I love the Lost Lagoon with the strip of Flower Pot DSP and Gold Sequin Trim! I think that it grounds the large tag nicely! Thank you for coming by to see my pictures and my card for this week’s Paper Players Theme challenge. I hope that you enjoyed the post today! Enjoy your Monday! 🙂
