Paper Players 293

Another rainy day here as promised by the lovely weathermen! LOL! I was up early and took Heather to the Dr. for another shot in her spine. She is trying to avoid the surgery at all costs, I can’t say that I blame her. We were there for a while and when she was finished we drove over to Woodbury and had lunch at Chop’t! Yes, I found one out here on the Island! Now Heather understands why I like it so much! From there we stopped at Target, Walgreen’s and the Dry Cleaners before heading back to her house. One of the cats had tried to take apart the chandelier so I fixed that and then came home just in time for dinner with Mum and Dad! When I got back to my house I made my card for today and continued working on my little project. Soon people!

The Paper Players have an interesting challenge this week…

Paper Players #293

Now, I knew that I had a bicycle stamp somewhere I just had to find it which didn’t take quite as long as I had thought it would! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I cut out the Mama Elephant Cityscape Creative Cuts from Black 110lb and adhered it to the card with Tombo Dot Runner Adhesive. Across the bottom for the street I adhered a piece of Basic Gray with some Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. The bicycle and greeting are from the Papertrey Ink Pedal Pusher Photopolymer Stamp Set. I did all of my die cutting first, they are solid dies, and then stamped the Wheels and greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black, the bicycle in Tide Pool, Basket in Khaki and the puppy in Slate. Two brads attach the wheels to the bike frame and it’s adhered to the card with more Tombo Dot Runner and Foam Tape. I never get tired of that cityscape, it works for so many different things! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thanks for coming by today! Have a simple Thursday! 🙂

  1. Good Morning Justin!

    I too love the cityscape die and use it fairly often. Your bicycle stamp and dies are amazing combined with the citiscape. Using the vintage brads on the center of the wheels could not have been more perfect. This is a fab card and I just love it!

    Busy day today but it’s all fun for me. I’m treating myself to a lot of pampering today. Hairdresser, manicure, a bit of shopping at L.L. Bean’s and perhaps even some lunch out. For some reason though, every time I go to the hair salon it decides to rain and I don’t mean misting. LOL So, by the time I get to the car from the salon one would never know I just had my hair done. I give up, nature wins! You have yourself a Terrific Thursday my friend. Love and hugs, XXOO 🙂

    1. Hello Grace!
      Yes, the cityscape die is definitely a good one! It was a fun challenge and I got to use as stamp that I haven’t used in a long time!
      Oh, look at you go! Good of you! We all need a day like that! LOL! I hate when that happens! Nature always wins unfortunately! I hope that you enjoyed your day my friend! XOXO 🙂
