ATC from Debbie and another Perfect Album

This is one perfect and beautiful ATC!!!!!! It was made by the lovely Debbie Nicholas of merry old England!! I love everything about it as it combines all my loves; a map, a lovely vintage photo of a pretty lady, and some words that tell a story! Oh my, I just love this ATC so! Thank you so much Debbie. A few months ago Debbie was pining over some little photo albums that were carried at the Michael's craft stores here in the U.S. So, I sent her those and instead of paying me for them, I asked for her to send me a package of goodies from England. Well, in addition to the ATC and I received some totally cool embellishments and two Paper Artsy stamps!!!! I think I came out ahead in this deal!! Thank you again Debbie!
Perfect Album Alert!!!!!!!! Blame the Vain by Dwight Yoakam. This is his most recent release. Every song is perfect!!!!! His voice is so wonderful! Mike and I just saw him in concert and it was shockingly great!! If you have a chance, please go see him. I get upset when I tell people about Dwight and they say, oh, country music.... Dwight cannot be classified as strictly country because his sound is so much more than that....it is great music period! He has one of those unique voices that you just get addicted to....... speaking of which, here are a few more voices that are unique, special, and addictive:

Freddie Mercury

Renee Fleming
Maria Callas
Roger Daltrey
Robert Plant
Billie Holiday
Doris Day
Barbra Streisand
Raul Malo
Bryn Terfel
Hank Williams, Sr.
Johnny Cash

Happy Friday and happy weekend everyone! Let's all read a good book, hang out with our loved ones, create a little art, and listen to some great music!

Wonderful eye candy...that includes a man with a tipped hat as well as the ATC. A lovely suggestion for art, family and music for the weekend as well. 5 days and a wake-up call before our grand adventure!
