Kristinas color challenge #33

Happy Thursday! This weeks color challenge was definately a "challenge" but I have several birthdays coming up and I wanted to make some different cards so this was perfect timing. The colors we were given this week to work with were chocolate chip, taken with teal, whisper white, certainly celery, and pumpkin pie. I thought the end result turned out well and now I have a great birthday card to give.

birthday wishes and an early Happy Thanksgiving

I know its early for saying Happy Thanksgiving but I will be away from my computer for awhile and I wanted to make sure I said it.
I made this card using some punches and some pre punches flowers. I love this combo as you can tell. I posted a card with this same combo about a week ago. I also reintroduced myself to buttons. I love the way they look on a card and thought I would try a few on this card. What do you think?

Kristinas color challenge #31

Good morning! I decided to try kristinas color challenge again. Wednesday nights there is nothing on tv and it seems to be a great time to craft so I was able to get some time in and give it a try. This weeks colors were close to cocoa, elegant eggplant, pumpkin pie, so saffron, and whisper white. The colors turned out very pretty together. Hope you like it.

Hi blog readers! Here are a few pictures from our evening out with friends at the Neil Diamond concert. I had never seen Neil in concert before but have always loved his music. He did not disappoint. What and entertainer! He sang a few of his new songs but mostly the old favorites. It was great to look into the audience and see people of all ages singing along with Neil. Sometimes the audience was so loud I am wondering if Neil was even singing.

My husband is a huge Dallas Cowboys fan and on Monday he had the privelege of flying from California to Texas to go to the game. These pictures are from his seat. He has a friend who had corporate seats that night and nicely shared them with my hubby. He had a great time and I just thought I would share a few photos with you all.
