Cherry Blossoms Window Hello

Another fun day in Manhattan at The Ink Pad. I helped Barbara with the Christmas cards and did some other stuff around the store. Kathryn Erbe came in to pick up some markers for her daughter. She was sining along to Sam Smith which I had playing on the stereo. A very nice lady and still has that great smile that she had in Law & Order: Criminal Intent. The train was much less crowded on the way home and that made it easy for me to fall asleep. I woke up just as the doors were closing in Bethpage, that’s my stop! Thankful dad was able to come and get me from the next stop, Farmingdale. I haven’t done that in a while! I had some pizza for dinner and then sat down to make my card for today. I played with some new goodies that I got yesterday which is always fun!

The card that I made has a nice spring-like feel to it! I’m hoping to coax the warm weather to come back! LOL! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I adhered a piece of Soft Sky to serve as a backdrop for the cherry blossoms from the Mama Elephant Lunar Extras Photopolymer Stamp Set. I colored it in with Copics and then cut it out with the Coordinating Creative Cuts, some Multi-Matte Medium Adheres it to the background. The front panel is a piece of My Minds Eye Wood Necessities 6×6 Paper. I used the Mama Elephant Window Watching Creative Cuts to cut out the negative and then cut it again from Solar White 80lb and pieced it back in. The panel is then adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. My greeting is the Mama Elephant Hello Script Creative Cuts, I cut it from some more Solar White 80lb and adhered it to the bottom of the card with more Multi-Matte Medium. I love that cherry blossom branch and it looks so neat through the window! I hope that you enjoyed my simple card for today! Thank you for visiting and enjoy the start of your week!
