City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 360 ~ You can do it!

I lived in New York City for 8 years before I moved to Las Vegas, those are some of my happiest time in my life, this trip back to New York, I desperately want to remember and cling to every moment, memory, sound and smell of the city.

We were at central park one morning....


Springtime in Central Park is absolutely magical.....


we took a stroll at Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir....


entered from upper east side and exit upper west side to the apartment we used to lived.


Oh I just missed and loved those days.

...............................



The theme chosen by Stella is "You can do it"
Check out challenge details HERE!


I used ink pad and the sponging technique for the background...


I tried this many times but this one is my favorite, I think I finally mastered the sponging technique!



Come join in the fun at City Crafter Challenge Blog!

I love your card, Kirsty. WOW! I like it for so many different reasons . . . it's such a coincidence that I just retired from nursing after nearly 40 years. And I love, LOVE your gorgeous photos, too.
