Another weekend done. It was a good one though. I didn’t end up going into Manhattan yesterday. The trains were all running late and I was worried that because of the wind they might shut down the bridge. I will go in one night this week or next weekend. Speaking of wind it was really windy all day and incredibly cold! They said that tonight’s temperature with the wind chill will be around -20! Now that is cold! Oh Florida! LOL! So instead of heading into the city I picked up Heather and we went over to have some breakfast with Kim and the girls. Heather bought some champagne so we had mimosas. For eats we had whole wheat chocolate chip pancakes, eggs, bacon and raspberry crumble bars. I dropped Heather back off at her house around 1:00 and then came home for a bit before I headed over to see Renee at Scrap-A-Latte. Her son Nicholas was there, he’s a really nice guy. He goes to school in Boston where they have about 80 inches of snow! Again, no thanks! I told him south, you need to head south! LOL! I was there for a few hours and then come home and had dinner with the ‘rents and then crafted for a bit. Not a bad day at all!
And since today is Monday that means that it’s Paper Players time! Before I get to this week’s challenge I want to thank Joanne for choosing me as her pick for last week’s color challenge. And as luck would have it Joanne is the challenge host this week…
Ahh, a bird! I do love a bird! The card for today uses Whisper White Card Stock for the base. A piece of the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper backed with a piece of Basic Black is the background. My panel is a piece of Coastal Cabana, embossed with the On Point Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and backed with Whisper White. I adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. All of the images and greeting are from the Hello Love Host Stamp Set. The bird and greeting are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, the greeting is cut out with the Word Bubbles Framelits. I used my Soft Sky Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers to color in the bird and then cut it out with my Paper Snips. The sun is heat embossed in Crushed Curry on Crushed Curry and also cut out with my Paper Snips. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere them all to the panel. Another nice and cheery card to help chase away the Winter as quickly as possible! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge. Thanks so much for coming by to check in with me! Have a marvelous Monday! 🙂
