Wonderful Calypso Espresso

Posted on

I had a lovely day in Manhattan yesterday despite the rain in the morning. I went in early and met my friend Kim for some diner breakfast and then headed over to see my friend Ella. After Ella’s I went down to Penn Station and met Andrew then I had to stop by and see Jon and Mary for a bit. When we finished there we headed downtown to get some lunch. Andrew is a big fan of hummus so I thought that Hummus and Pita Company would be a good place to go. It was quite tasty as always! Andrew needed to stop by the Apple Store to get his lightning cable replace and who doesn’t like a visit to the Apple Store?! I got a text from Brian saying that he was in the city not too far from us so we went and met up with him for some Starbucks. On the subway ride back up we saw a group perform some acrobatic dance moves in the 34th Street/Herald Square Station. Only in Manhattan people! We stopped at Kim’s for a bit and then headed over to Isabella’s to drop off her Stampin’ Up! order and then it was time to come home. Here are some pictures from yesterday’s travels.

That’s Andrew just down the block from the Apple Store on 14th Street. Notice the lovely banana peel on the floor! LOL!

Does it look like we were having a good day?! That’s Brian on the left in his Fire Department uniform. That was also after the Starbucks!

A fun day in the city indeed! After I got home I sat down to make my card for today and was inspired to use the You’re Wonderful Photopolymer Stamp Set and last week’s Pals Paper Arts colors! Ooops! My card base for today is Early Espresso Card Stock. The main stamp from the You’re Wonderful Photopolymer Stamp Set is heat embossed in Early Espresso Stampin’ Emboss Powder on So Saffron. I heat embossed the banners in Calypso Coral on Early Espresso along with the greetings and adhered them to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The flowers are heat embossed in Calypso Coral on Vellum Card Stock and colored in with Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers. I cut them out with my Paper Snips and used a tiny bit of Multi-Purpose Glue to adhere them to the card. I guess I liked the colors so much that they stuck in my head and what would one of my cards be without some heat embossing and vellum lately?! I hope you enjoyed today’s card and the city pics! Thanks for coming by to see what I have been up to and enjoy your Sunday! 🙂
