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 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!!
