Hello from the Wintry North!! My goodness has our weather turned pants or what, it's freezing and snowing, not lying thankfully on lower ground, but our mountains have a fair flourish to them. Of course that means the woollies are back and the heating is on. Are you having much of the same?? I believe this is what is called the Lambing Snow, poor little creatures having to be out in this.
Apart from all the poor weather I hope you are well, but sending kind thoughts that you will feel better soon.
Thanks you all so much for your lovely comments on my Poppy card, I really appreciate each and every one of them.
We had our last rehearsal last night at the choral, it's our big concert on Saturday, and it went very well, I certainly feel more confident than I did a couple of weeks ago, pieces are wonderful, Bach's Magnificat and Haydn Paukenmesse... Mass In Time Of War. The Haydn is new to me but have sung Magnificat once before, and it's just as challenging as the first time which was 14 years ago. Still it will be a fabulous concert, so looking forward to that, even though Alistair will miss it as he will be on his canoe weekend.... I've been racking up the Rain Dances, those who follow me regularly will know what I'm talking about.
Anyway, enough of all that nonsense, I've a little something that I'm entering the CB colour challenge,
A tag, never really do these unless it's for Christmas, and indeed this is from the Gift of Christmas stamp set. There is a star on top of the image which I've not stamped to make it an anytime pyramid of gifts. I used DI on Silk Art Card which was fine for that part, but I then used Derwent Inkintense pencils and they didn't do so well on this particular card, but I've gone over some of the image with Sakura Gel pens. which also gives some sparkle. Added some ribbon which my lovely friend Ang (Mrs. Duck) gave me a while back and job done. Here is the colour swatch for the challenge;
I've tried to interpret the colours, don't think I've done too badly.
That's me for today, I hope you are enjoying your day whatever your are doing...me.. well I'm off to see Milo and Rowan in a wee while, I wonder what we'll get up to today.
Take care everyone and see you soon,
I would like to enter my tag into ;http://chocolatebaroquechallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2017/04/challenge-thirty-four.html
