Yup, there goes another weekend! It was a good one despite the speed at which it moves. I headed into Manhattan yesterday on the 9:11am train and got to Kim’s around 10:45. We went out to the diner for a little late breakfast, I had some whole wheat pancakes and turkey sausage that was quite good! After the diner we wandered down to 86th Street and I ran into Staples and BestBuy. I picked up a new pair of Bluetooth Headphones, the ones that I have don’t last long enough! We stopped at Starbucks and had some coffee and then headed over to 63rd and First Avenue to see the future digs! I really like the apartment a lot! It’s definitely bigger and much more updated than her current one. There is a dishwasher in the kitchen!! What I wouldn’t do for a dishwasher! But the best part has to be the rooftop deck! It’s open all the time so we went up to see the view and what a view it is! I took a few pictures!
Can you see the 59th Street Bridge in the middle? How neat is that?!
Way over in the back to the left is the Chrysler Building and in the middle is the Citibank Building! Not a bad view at all! I told Kim that I would be spending my summer weekends on the rooftop deck!
I’ll have some pictures of the inside of the apartment once the current owners get the rest of their furniture out of there. I’m looking forward to getting to the decorating part!
Well, since it’s Monday I have my Paper Players card for this week’s challenge…
Lately it seems that Forever Florals has been my go to flower set! The card base for today is a piece of Whisper White Card Stock. My background is a piece of Smoky Slate that I stamped in Smoky Slate with the Hardwood Background Stamp. I then used the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangles to cut out the panel and adhered it to the base with SNAIL. The greeting is from the Hi There Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Blushing Bride Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Vellum. The Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangles cut it out and some 2-Way Glue adheres it to the wood panel. My flower is from the Forever Florals Stamp Set and is heat embossed on Blushing Bride with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and cut out with my Paper Snips. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals hold it in place. What’s one of my cards lately without a little sprinkling of sequins?! LOL! So there you have my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge from Ann. I hope that you enjoyed the card and the pictures from my future rooftop hang out! Thank you very much for your visit and have a magnificent Monday! 🙂
