Happy Sunday! I went MIA and I have not explanation for it, but I do have a few things to share since last post; 1 card and some other ramblings. First the card...this started out as Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. As you can see it clearly is not the sketch. I really wanted to use the bench and have had this image in my head since I got the set (Time for You, SU!) I didn't have a tree stamp that was the right size so I ended up drawing one. If you remember from a few posts back, I do have an aversion to drawing from a trama I suffered in 6th grade, which involved a sketch of a dog. I really can't talk about it... deep breaths...ok I'm better now.... I drew the tree and colored the whole thing with watercolor pencils and an aquapen. I didn't want to take away from the image with a lot of embellishments so I kept just a few layers and the ribbon. The sentiment is from one of those little $1 stamps from Michaels, perfect! Please be kind with your comments and the whole drawing thing....
As you might remember, I went to see Elton John on Wednesday night. If you are an Elton John fan I would suggest you stop reading right now, if you continue reading please accept my apologies. At best, his concert was boring and unimaginative; at worst it was base and crude. There I said it and I feel free. I am not going to spend a ton of energy on this, I just expected more from an iconic singer/songwriter who commented on and help shape an era. If we had not been at the concert as guests of a person my husband does business with, I would have walked out. I had lunch with a wonderful friend of mine (hi Justine!) on Thursday and she has run into people that felt the same way about the show, too bad I hadn't talked to them before I said yes to the tickets:(
This as nothing to do with anything, except that I had an almost religious experience at lunch on Friday and thought I would share. A new shopping district has opened in Las Vegas call Town Square right on Las Vegas Blvd. It is an outdoor venue with shops and restaurants and a park for the kids to play in and a movie theater. A Tommy Bahama cafe opened there and I went with my little redhead to try it out on Friday. I ordered the Saba Steak Salad. This was the description for it: Marinated and char-grilled tenderloin medallions served over a bed of fresh mixed greens tossed with tamarind vinagarette. Garnished with grilled potatoes, vine-ripened roma tomatoes, shiitake chips and garlic ailoli. mmmmmmmm, give me a minute please. Thanks. I think that this might very well be a written description of heaven. If you are ever in Vegas, I will meet you at Tommy Bahama's:) Till then my friends, have a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for stamping by!
