Big City Thank You

Boy it has been a long time since my last card. I really needed a break and I'm sorry for just disappearing. I'm ready to get back into posting a card or two a week. I need to start slow though because I definitely don't want to get burned out.

A friend of mine sent me a super cool stamp set of the Empire State Building and taxi cab from Yellow Owl Workshop NYC. I think distributed by Pottery Barn. When I saw this Basic Grey Wander paper in my stash, I thought it would be the perfect front drop to the ESB. I added some red stickles to the top of the ESB because you know there is a Weedle up there. There is some Crystal Effects on the windows and headlight of the cab, but that doesn't show up very well. The clouds and rolling green hills paper are from K&Company Actopus to Zelephant. This card is going to thank my friend for the fabulous set.

I hope you have a wonderful week

Yay! Welcome back! I know exactly what you mean about needing a break for fear of burning out. But you obviously didn't lose any mojo, because this card is awesome! Love the torn layers, and your Wheedle (not on The Needle)! LOL! {hug}
