{Sweet Sweet} Sunshine

Thursday, August 22, 2013

Yesterday, my friend Kelli and I, went into the city for lunch and some shopping.
 We met at the train station and took the train in together.
 There certainly was a lot of sunshine! 
It was hot, but it was worth it.
 First stop...The Ink Pad!
Who knew such a small space could be filled with so much good stuff!
I picked up several stamp sets, a few ink pads, and a gift for my mom. 
I can't tell you about that one because she sometimes reads my blog.

I've wanted to try these inks from Hero Arts for a long time.  It was great to do that without having to worry about shipping costs.  They stamp beautifully and I wish I had picked up a few more!

The store carries many stamp companies {My Favorite Things, Mama Elephant, Lawn Fawn, Avery Elle, to name a few} that are normally only available to me online.  It was great to be able to check them out in person.  I ended up choosing 3 Mama Elephant sets and 1 Lawn Fawn set.
We had a delicious lunch at Rosa Mexicano
The guacamole was awesome; so fresh!

Cardstock: PTI White, Harvest Gold
Stamps: ME Smitten, ME So Breezy
Ink: Hero Arts Tide Pool, Pool, PTI Harvest Gold, Versafine Onyx
Other: MME Paper, MS Glitter

  2. I miss being able to hop on the train and go to NYC on a whim. It sounds like you had a great time and got some awesome goodies!! Glad to hear you like the HA inks. I've been wanting to take the plunge for awhile now. Love the ME stamp sets you chose too... I am sure I wouldn't have been able to resist them in person either ;) Great card!!

  3. Kara your day sounds fantastic and I wish I had been there too, we would have closed the store! LOL

  4. I was just there last Saturday! I can look around in that store for hours! It's so tiny but packed! Love the card!

  5. Sounds like THE perfect day! Love finding treasure stores like that, especially the ones that carry those stamp sets and ink pads. Nice to see them in person and to NOT have to worry about shipping costs. :)

  6. I've heard so much about The Ink Pad - maybe some day. I've been wanting to try the HA Mid Tone inks, too. Thanks for your review.
