This card uses a combo of two of the slapstick stamps in the Uptown set by Penny Black. I colored with Copics, cut out and mounted the buildings on pop dots. I added Glossy Accents to the roofs and windows. Washi tape anchors the buildings; and a wooden charm just for fun! The sentiment is from PB's Eloquence transparent set. Washi tape sky with punched out clouds finishes the scene. I am going to enter this card in the Penny Black challenge "for family". The challenge closes on May 19th, so you have time to play, too!
Speaking of Uptowns, our city is working on reviving our downtown and has added condos to the mix of buildings. Unfortunately, the people living in the codos are not happy with the noise from the music scene that they have found themselves in the midst of. So, the city passed noise ordinances and now the music venues must play their music softly!! One establishment has already gone out of business due to the lack of interest in softly played rock!
Has no one heard of soundproofing? Did no one realize that downtown living is not the same as rural?
Hope they get this straightened out before the downtown collapses!
We celebrated Mother's Day today by driving across the city to PF Changs for lunch, courtesy of gift cards from the family. A sudden rainstorm thwarted any further plans and we headed home ... where it hadn't rained at all. Life in Huntsvile! .
Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
Note to Scott: You are developing your own little fan club, thanks to your comments!! Sorry about the return of the exclamation marks ... just can't help it!! Love, Mom
