Hello Everyone, hoping all is well with you and that your week is going fine.
Cooler now, but still nice weather, but got a shock last night when I had to drive home in the dark from choral practise, of course I could see outside that it had darkened but somehow the brain hadn't computed that I would be driving in it. Hate driving in the dark now, I don't know if it's my eyes or lack of confidence, maybe a bit of both. I've forgotten how to put the full beam on, isn't that shocking!!, so I sat for a few minutes to get my driving bearings.
Anyway, it was lovely to get back to singing and with such a beautiful programme this session it's going to be a pleasure. We are singing Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle along with various other pieces by different composers. I first stumbled through the Rossini way back in 2004 when I first joined the Choral Society, when I didn't read music, sing Latin, and couldn't follow a music score, nearly gave up with it, but here I am 12 years one and not only can I sing Latin, but also other languages, and don't loose the place so much, lol. Seriously folks though, I love choral music and find it so uplifting. Sing is though, doesn't matter what kind of music, it's food for the soul as the great Bard wrote.
Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my CCC creations, you are very kind. A warm welcome to my two new Followers, Shirley and Mac, thank you so much for choosing to follow, I hope you will continue to pop in when you have time and leave a comment.
So here I am with my second 60th card for our friend Ken for the "Boys" to sign and give him,
Once again I wanted something humorous and found this at Dr. Digi, and just perfect as a few years back, much to is wife's horror he bought himself a motor bike... you know the kind of male menopause thing. He also has a beard, not like this chap, not does he have his girth, so I think he will see the fun in it.
I wanted a fairly muted colours so silver, grey and shades of blue. Gansi Tambi watercolour paint, Ctaftersworkshop Stencil, cogs with Starlight Paints dubbed through it, the image is mounted on to card painted in Silver and Black Starlight Paints, a peel off 60, and to finish Glossy Accent on the specs.
I'm posting this even although Ken's birthday is not till next month but he doesn't look at my blog.
Off now to have a look in a parcel that's just been put in the door by Fergus our lovely Postie, it's from Imagination Crafts and stamps and new Starlights, going to be having a play tonight whilst Alistair is out Ken's home with the "Boys" playing music.
Have a lovely day whatever you are doing, and hoping to get around to visit later today, see you soon
