I'm back from NY and feeling Wicked :)

My mom and I went to NY Friday morning and returned late last night. We went to see Mary Poppins and Wicked. The Mary Poppins set was phenomenal and somewhat different from the Disney movie. We saw that show on Friday night. I loved it. On Saturday we met some friends and saw Wicked. That is a must see. I am ready to see it again. It is so sweet, funny, and the two girls starring in it are phenomenal. Tomorrow a play called A Steady Rain starring Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman opens. Does it get more verile than that? Yumm-o. It makes me want to go back already :)

On Sunday my mom and I ate at Tavern on the Green. I love that restaurant. Beautiful setting and wonderful food. I love NY!

I went three whole days without computer access. Is this what life was like before the internet? :)

On to the card: I have this Stampin' Up! Wings of Friendship stamp set that I just had to have, but I had not even opened or assembled before today. I wanted to use my Nesties Labels 1 dies too. I stamped in chocolate chip ink on SU! kraft card stock. The white butterfly and sentiment are SU! rub-ons. The flower in the bottom left-hand corner was paper pierced and popped up on dimensionals. The red brad is Bazzill. and the red card base is DCWV. The ribbon is SU! chocolate chip. The decorative paper is American Crafts. I thought it needed a border, so I dry embossed a frame.

I hope your weekend was fabulous too :)

I'm so happy you had a wonderful time in NYC! Wicked is my favorite Broadway show (I've seen it more than once!) and I'd see it again. It was lovely weather here all weekend so you picked a great time to visit. We spent the morning in Central Park playing soccer and it was perfect!

Wow, what a beautiful stamp on this card! I can certainly see why you had to have it. Your label die fits it perfectly and I really like your ribbon styling!!!
