Hello there! How was the weekend? Mine was pretty good, I had a nice time in Manhattan yesterday. The weather was perfect, I did a lot of walking, 9 miles to be exact! I love walking in the city. My friend Kim and I met for breakfast at the diner and then we walked across Central Park. I stopped by to see Joe and Penny for a bit and then met up with Kim at 116th Street and Park Avenue. There is a market there called La Marqueta, they have all kinds of food truck vendors and a garden center. We had some really good bacon wrapped pork bites and rice balls with chicken, for dessert some yummy ice cream. I stopped by Kim & Brian’s for some tacos on the way home and then I came home and crafted for a bit. I had the American Music Awards on and got to see Sam sing I’m Not the Only One. Can’t wait to see him in January! My friend Michael made a really cool card yesterday using a little Stampin’ Up! and some stencils. Love the birds! Go and take a look HERE! Oh, yes, I almost forgot, I have some pictures for you too! I thought that the blog post title would intrigue you! There were a few chickens under the subway tracks! There really isn’t anything that you can’t find in Manhattan! LOL!
The Reservoir, I love the reflection of the buildings and the ducks just hanging out!
I just thought the shadow of the tree and the sun were really cool!
And there are the chickens! They were happy little chickens too!
A fun day in the city! Since it’s Monday that means that it’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge…
A sketch from the lovely LeAnne! I had the urge to use some silver, well, a lot of silver! My card base is Basic Black Card Stock. I heat embossed the greeting from the Four You Stamp Set with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder in the lower right corner. I then embossed a pice of Silver Foil Sheet with the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch for the little strip across the top punched from Basic Gray. Another piece of Basic Gray that I flagged on the bottom is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the embossed panel. A Silver Basic Metal Button with some Basic Black Baker’s Twine tied in a bow is adhered to the flag with Glue Dots. I used the Four Feathers Stamp Set heat embossed on Vellum in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder for my element on the panel. They are adhered to each other with SNAIL and to the card with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Three Frosted Sequins adhered with Crystal Effects complete the card. It has been a while since I used the feathers, did you miss them as much as I did?! LOL! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players sketch challenge! I love having you stop by and share in my adventures! Thanks so much and have a magnificent Monday!
