Hero Arts created the delightful Holiday Background cling stamp that I've used for many Christmas cards since I bought it last year. The border punch is EK Success's Bracket Edger - love this too! And my snowflake is three layers of felt embellishments also by Hero Arts. The cute little circle tag is from a Tim Holtz die by Sizzix and I used kraft string twine from May Arts - love them both! The striped paper is not from a Christmas paper pad at all - I dug around for something with some navy and purple and found a My Mind's Eye Lime Twist paper pad - perfect. And I won one Kathy's random draw prizes - yay, thanks, Kathy!
Now for the big news - just got back last Sunday from Denver where my chorus City of Lakes Chorus earned a 7th place (in the world!!!) medal in the Sweet Adelines International chorus contest. We had a great time - lots of rehearsals and make-up, camaraderie and yummy food, beautiful city and friendly people, balmy weather and exquisite mountain views.
Here's the early a.m. view (that's the moon setting) from our 17th floor Downtown Sheraton hotel room:
And here I am with my dear friend Connie - we're in our finals round costume.
We had last week off from rehearsal; this week we'll be able to review our contest videos and then move on to Christmas music for our December 8th show. No rest for us busy singers!!
Hope you had a great weekend doing what you love. Thanks for stopping!
