Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

Monthly Archives: June 2011

It’s almost 1/2 way through the year and here’s my first Christmas card! Usually I try to make a couple holiday cards every month, but I haven’t been able to do that this year. I’ll just have to do a marathon session in July or whenever I can get some time to crank out some cards. I love making holiday cards, so it shouldn’t be difficult!

Don’t forget this week’s challenge at Michelle Perkett’s Challenge blog – Flowers Galore!

I have another angel for you from Michelle Perkett’s new angel collection! I think she’s my favorite, the Peach Angel. She’s so elegant and pretty that she belongs among the clouds! I stamped and embossed the clouds using a Stamps of Life set – just perfect don’t you think?

There’s this new blogging event thing that Shimelle is starting called “10 things”. It looks like fun and I couldn’t resist joining in!

On the 10th of the month you’ll find a list here from me about some 10 things. 🙂

To start it off, I’ll make a list using one of the latest cards that I made that I really am happy with! It’s a new Ippity Stamps set called New Season, New Wonder. A super cute and versatile 6 image set that is all fruity! Take a peek:

I had the opportunity to attend a U2 concert about a year and a half ago. The company I work for gave me 2 free tickets, so I couldn’t refuse them! It was on a Friday before a holiday weekend, perfect for an outdoors concert. We drove about 4 hrs to get to the stadium. WELL worth it!! Muse opened the concert and played about 45 minutes. They were great! U2 came on after a short intermission and really rocked the house! They played a long set list of new and old music. What a show!!
