Crisp Starfruit Stars & Little Sneak Peek

How was your Sunday? Mine was pretty good for the last one of the year. I went into Manhattan in the morning and when I was finished with my appointment it was raining. That sort of dashed my hopes of taking a walk. When I got back on the Island I went to see my friends Kim and Kevin, Izzy and Savannah. We had some wine and Kim made ravioli parm for dinner. It was a much needed visit and Kim is just awesome! I also got to see Andrew for a minute. He has been very sick with the flu but is doing much better! I did manage to take one picture when I got to Penn Station. It’s not very exciting but it is the home of the new LIRR station, the former Post Office. You can see how rainy and gloomy it was too.

There is no Paper Players card for today. Instead I have another fairly simple card, sort of a collage with unusual fun colors. The base of the card is Summer Starfruit Card Stock. My background is a piece of Whisper White. I stamped the large stars from the Simply Stars Stamp Set and the small ones from the Banner Blast Stamp Set** both in Smoky Slate randomly on a diagonal. The greeting is from the Bring on the Cake Stamp Set and is stamped in Early Espresso on a piece of paper from the Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper Pack. Another piece is adhered to one of the tags from the Stamp a Tag Kit and a piece of  Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape* is adhered around the end. Some Whisper White Bakers Twine is looped through the hole for the tie. I stamped another greeting from the Delightful Dozen Stamp Set in Early Espresso and punched it out with the “Vintage” Large Star Punch.  Three more stars are punched out with the Merry Minis Punch Pack from Silver Foil Sheet and all of them are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really love all of the colors, I think they go quite nicely together and the Washi Tape and Silver Foil Sheet give just the right amount of sparkle. Thanks very much for coming by to see my card for today. I always appreciate your visits and love your comments! Have a good last Monday of the year! 🙂
