Stamp-a-faire Opening Ceremony and Breakfast Bake & Take

I wrote this up on the weekend, but then decided to post another blog entry first, as the Merry Monday challenge was ending, so this is my Saturday write-up....I hope this is not too confusing...

--X--

I really did not have time for crafting today - the weather is gorgeous and I had already made plans way in advance to continue my walking tour through Manhattan. The plan is to walk every street - at the rate we are going we'll still be hobbling around when we are in our 80ies......

It came out okay - would have been better to have more time.....


I combined two patterned papers (My Mind's Eye) and added the sentiment - Papertrey Mixed Messages. Since it looked kind of bland I added some Stickles - don't you think that Stickles always improve cards - the jump up at least one level  - from "so so" to "not bad" or even "looks good"



I promise to show you some of my New York City pics next week - first have to edit them...

Thought I'd visit your blog too, and I love it. You have a nice CAS style that I admire. Love the pictures you've added and esp. like the card based on the tea cup.
