Mojo Monday 408 and More Manhattan!

Well, I had THE best 4 days off! My weekend was fantastic! Yesterday morning Maggie said our goodbyes to Kim and Maggie and headed downtown to have breakfast with Michael. Around 12:30 I walked Maggie to the Subway so she could get to JFK for her flight back to Cali. It was so nice to have Maggie here with me, love her to pieces. She is so happy and funny and I’m glad that she got to meet Michael and Kim! I can’t wait for her to come back!! It was also a lot of fun working at The Ink Pad with Michael. So many people from different countries stop in. We met a sweet lady from France who gave us some really cool tags that she used as business cards! After we closed the store we took a nice long walk along the Hudson and watched all of the boats and people. So relaxing and it was a gorgeous evening. I dropped Michael off in Midtown and then headed home. I really didn’t want to weekend to end! As promised here are some pictures that I took from the High-Line yesterday. It was an amazing sunset!

Look at that sun!

One good thing about Monday’s, it’s time for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch…


Oh how I love a tall & skinny! LOL! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Typeset Designer Series Paper Pack. Across the lower half is a piece of Pear Pizzaz that I used the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes dies along the top and bottom. My main panel is a piece of Basic Black that is cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles Dies with another piece of Typeset DSP on top. I adhered a sliver of Basic Black along the bottom and then adhered the panel to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. The neat cup is from this month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and the succulent in Pear Pizzaz. It’s cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles and adhered to the card with more Fun Foam and SNAIL. I say it all the time but I really do love the stamps in the Paper Pumpkin Kits! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge! Take a minute to head on over the blog and check out the rest of the Design Team’s cards and enter yours in the gallery! Oh, I hope that you enjoyed the pictures too, I’ll have some more tomorrow! I will also be catching up on my comments today, thanks for writing! Have a magnificent Monday! 🙂

  1. Great card and pics, Justin. So happy you had a wonderful 4-day mini vaca. Like the colors of the card and the DSP.

    1. Thank you Nancy! I had the best 4 days in recent memory! Glad that you like to card! Have a great day! 🙂

  2. Hi Justin,
    Sounds like a wonderful weekend. So glad you enjoyed it. Great pics from the High Line.
    LOVE this card. I really liked the stamps in the PP kit this month too. Of course, you took it up a notch and it looks fantastic with the typeset dsp. I really love the effect the stitched dies give on this card. I have the rectangle stitched dies but you have convinced me that I have to get some of the other shapes too.
    Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hello Gerri!
      Yes, it was a fantastic weekend! So glad that you enjoyed the pics and the card! I always like the stamps in the Paper Pumpkin kits, especially to use them with completely different stuff! Love all of the stitched dies, they just add a little extra! 🙂

  3. Good Morning Justin:

    Such an exciting and fun 4 days off for you. There is absolutely nothing in this world better than being with people you love while doing things you love. AND what better place to do that than in Manhattan! So much to see, so much to do, such wonderful food to eat – I can’t imagine anything better. Now, even though I have been in Manhattan more times than I can count I never heard of the High Line. Sorry if I sound ignorant but just what is that?

    Love, love, love your card for today. Tall & Skinny, Black, White and Pear Pizzazz! Looks fabulous and oh so versatile. How you could settle down after such an exciting day and make a fantastic card is beyond me. I would have been too hyped up to create anything. Love that you shared your amazing weekend with us. Have yourself a Marvelous Monday. Love & Hugs, XO 🙂

    1. Hello Grace!
      Yes, it was a fantastic four days, I definitely didn’t want it to end! I am definitely happiest when I am with my friends! The High-Line is so cool! You have to pay it a visit the next time that you are in!
