Paper Smooches and Manhattan Walking Tour

Remember that I did some walking through Manhattan last weekend? Well on Sunday my friend set me up and was still home when I already was at the arranged meeting spot. I was furious - I am German and therefore punctuality was drilled into me from day one on..... Having somebody wait for over an hour is just not something I can handle very well.....So when I found out I decided to walk 20 blocks south (and 2 long blocks east) to the Ink Pad - the fantastic stamp store in Greenwich village, to spend my time in a more useful way....Turned out the the Ink Pad does not open before 12pm on a Sunday - what a disappointment! But it was after 12 when my friend actually showed up and since I was waiting nearby we decided to go there after all. 

Long story short I did some shopping.... Ever heard of shopping therapy? It does wonders sometimes..... I bought myself that cute Paper Smooches set Forest Whimsy - (among some other goodies) - I had my eye on it now for a while.

Back home I made this card for the Paper Smooches challenge and it also fits KIS - Christmas in August:

I used a Lifestyle Crafts embossing folder (classic) to mimic the wall on the inspiration picture. The frame is from Hero Arts. The coloring I did with Copics.

Here is the inspiration picture:

Want to see some Manhattan walking tour pics? We covered parts of the West Village and Greenwich village.

Here is an assortment of entrance figures people have in front of their beautiful townhouses:

And here are reliefs, etc I discovered:

 And now just some fun pics:

First of all, the card is just too cute. There are so many Santa stamps out there that are just not happy...but this Santa is awesome! Great card!

The pics from the walking tour are so cool. Funny the beautiful and interesting details from a walk. :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

I am with you on the punctual thing, my dad was career Navy and we all knew that we needed to be ready at least 30 minutes before the actual time. Now your card is just amazing, what a sweet stamp and your coloring, just perfect!
