SOS Odds and Ends Challenge


Shopping Our Stash has a new challenge up – Odds and Ends – create a card using bits and pieces that have been left over.

Here’s my take –

Wausau Cardstock front, no id patterned papers. Sentiment is TPC Studio hugs and Kisses stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. Corners embossed with a Fiskars punch.

The odds and ends – the blue parentheses are leftovers from when I first used my Shapeabilities Pendants Lattice dies, the sentiment is a scrap of fleck cardstock as are the two oval chains (ek punch). I used a leftover piece of paisley print, split into two, to weave into the chains.

Mike Nesmith on great reviews and happy touring

 Its hard to describe how much fun I am having performing and playing music live to an audience.

The Monkees concerts are so gratifying, as are my solo shows. There is a reciprocity in a live show that is not approachable from any other direction than live and real time.

The writer for the Chicago Tribune really caught the spirit. http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-11-17/entertainment/ct-ent-1119-monkees-review-20121118_1_tork-and-nesmith-monkees-daydream-believer

Can’t wait to get to NYC. Thinking maybe I’ll set up a solo tour for the US.

Thanks for all the support and wonderful response.
