SNOW! I hate snow! It’s snowing here and is supposed to continue doing so for the rest of the day. I don’t plan on leaving the house today at all. I did have a very nice Friday! I went and met up with Heather and Brian and we headed to IKEA to get Heather’s new bed. We dropped it off at Heather’s house and picked up the table and chairs and Stephanie and headed into Manhattan. Kim’s new building is nice because you can at least stop outside to take things into her building, the old one was on Second Avenue with the Subway construction, no place to stop! We put the table together and set it up before stopping at Isabella’s to pick up some things and then we headed downtown to go to lunch. After having some parking meter trouble we finally got the car settled and walked over to A Salt & Battery. It’s an actual real English Fish & Chips Shop. They all had cod and chips and I had a banger and some chips. I also had one of my favorite English sodas, Tango! Lunch was delicious! On the way out of the city we discovered that Adam was working on 56th and 6th so we stopped by to see him for a bit. He is working on a new series for HBO called Divorce starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Thomas Hayden Church. We got to sit in the sound room and listen and see them filming a scene. So much fun! Here is a picture of the lady doing the sound and our badge!
So much fun to get to do cool unexpected things! Once we got back to Heather’s I put the bed together and then some of her family stopped by and we had pizza for dinner. I came home and watched a little TV, I was a little tired after the long but fun day! I’m hoping the we don’t get as much snow as they are saying, fingers crossed!
Today I have a fun little shaker card for you! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles to cut out a piece of paper from the Heidi Swapp September Skies 6×6 Paper Pad along with a piece of Solar White 80lb. I then used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares and Bundle of Stitched Shapes to cut out the window and the angled top. A piece of Acetate and some Foam Tape around the back helps to keep the confetti that I got from Target on clearance after Christmas in place. A pair of feathers are cut from some Solar White 80lb that I inked with Simon Says Stamp Catkin and Scuba Ink using a Mini Ink Blending Tool. The dies are Simon Says Stamp Feathers Craft Dies. A random button has a piece of American Crafts Bright Green Basics Hemp Twine tied in a bow and then adhered with the feathers using some Glue Dots. My greeting is cut from Night of Navy and Solar White 80lb with the Simon Says Stamp Thanks Craft Die. I adhered them together and then coated it with Versa-Mark and then Simon Says Stamp Clear Fine Detail Embossing Powder before heating it with the Heat Tool to give it the Licorice look. Some Multi-Matte Medium adheres it to the card. I love the greens and blues along with that nice shiny greeting! I hope that you enjoyed my card for today! Thank you very much for stopping by and I hope that your weather is a lot better than mine! Have a snow-free Saturday! 🙂
