A new post... Life has really kept me busy, especially with Nicole joining the basketball team... games and practices consume almost every weeknight.

Anyway, here are a couple of tags for xmas. I like to package them up (about 10-12) and give them to my co-workers and thoughtful but inexpensive gifts. They love them, and always want to keep them for themselves instead of giving away on gifts :-)

U2 Baby!

This past Saturday I went to the U2 Concert at Soldier Field. Even though we had near nose-bleed seats, I had a really good time... the concert was really good (as expected with U2) and it brought me back to the day!! The only big bummer was the $45 parking fee - can you freakin believe that? How the heck can you charge that much for parking for these types of events and then say the city is in financial trouble and taxes have to remain at 10.25%!! but i digress...

Here is a clip from the concert and a couple of pics... I'm working on my U2 inspired card and scrapbook page.

Full of Birthdays

September is a month filled with birthdays... Mostly friends, but also some family. Today I am posting a card that I will give to my friend Lettie for her birthday. Since she's a chef and likes martini's with her food, I thought this was very appropriate!

Happy Birthday Girlfriend!

Happy Monday!

I wanted to share a couple of projects I've made this week ...
I made this card for a friend of mine who just purchased her first home. This is a big deal since the gal is 35! The house is big and beautiful, so I thought this card was perfect.
This card was made for my younger cousin Andy who just turned 16. I wanted the card to look urban and funky...

I hope you have a good week!

The End of Summer :-(

It's official, the end of summer is here! Today is Labor Day and although I love a day off, I'm sad that summer once again went so fast!

Although I've been busy all weekend, I wanted to sneak in my entry for Dawn's color challenge #16:

This card came together pretty quick as I punched a heart from the Marigold color and backed it with an vanilla cardstock stamped in chocolate polka dots.
Stamps: PTI - Text Background and Polka Dots II
Punches and Cardstock : Stampin Up
Tell me what you think. Enjoy!
