Yup, there goes the weekend just flying by as always! I did have a very nice weekend though so I can’t complain. Yesterday I went into Manhattan and met my friend Kim for breakfast. We went to our usual spot, the diner but we had belgian waffles for a change. After breakfast we headed over to the West Side to go to a flea market on 77th and Broadway. While we were wandering around we saw Bernadette Peters in one of the jewelry stalls. It’s so funny when you see a celebrity in the city randomly. After we were done there we walked back to Kim’s apartment and I stopped by my friend Julia’s house before heading home. It was little crisp yesterday morning when I left around 7:45, I had to wear a sweat jacket. It’s too early for that!! I did mange to snap a few pictures in my travels which by the way was a nice 8 miles in total for the day! The first picture I took on our way through Central Park. It’s Belvedere Castle, I think that it’s a neat little castle and there is a visitors center inside along with all sorts of scientific instruments that collect weather data.
Next up is a picture of one of the exhibits located in the Rose Center for Earth and Space that is in the American Museum of Natural History. It’s called Scales of the Universe and has scale models of the planets amongst other things. I took the picture though because I thought it was really neat how the reflection of the buildings and the trees show up so clearly.
Finally I have a picture of the Great Lawn during the day. I did take one at night a few months ago. I love that you see the park and then the buildings rise up in the distance!
Now off we go to today’s post and it’s for this week’s Paper Players color challenge from Anne Marie…
I’m not ready to admit that fall is on it’s way just yet but I do love the colors. The base for today’s card is Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock and on top of that is a piece of Blackberry Bliss. My background is a piece of Very Vanilla and I stamped my greeting in Always Artichoke from the For All Things Stamp Set. The pumpkin and leaves are from the Fall Fest Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Blackberry Bliss, Baked Brown Sugar, Always Artichoke and Cajun Craze. I used the Fun Fall Framelits to cut them out. The pumpkin and base layer of leaves are adhered with SNAIL and some more of the leaves with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the leaves in all of the colors and the fact that there are Framelits for them is great! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players color challenge. Thank you very much for coming by to share in my day! Love having you stop by! Have a great Monday! 🙂
