Good Morning to Everyone, has your Blogger Dashboard changed? Mine has and blogger is back to the robot thingy. I was all over the place looking for the icon for new post, well obviously I found it but I wish blogger wouldn't tinker with blogger.
Anyway, I hope you are all well, and keeping dry and cosy. You folks down there in Englandshire are having awful weather, we in the Highlands are doing OK, very cold but sunny today.
Needless to say my Adventurer is off to the hills, he's so pleased to have his chum Derek back who has been away in China for the last 3 months, so they are off out to play.
A big Hello and Welcome to Shaz who is my new Follower and also now one of our CCC members, I hope you will manage to pop in when you can Shaz and thanks for clicking the follow button.
Thanks also to all who commented on my last project, busy now looking for small doggie treats to put into the drawers.
Thanks to for your good wishes for our concert, it went brilliantly, the soloists were wonderful and we were wonderfuller lol. The audience seemed to receive the music well, although Alistair admitted to dozing off in the first part, but some of the pieces are very repetitive, especially the amens, 8 pages of amens is really too much for anyone regardless of how well sung. He loved the second half where the music was a bit lighter and the soloists sang their own music and the Bass was superb with the famous aria from the Marriage of Figaro.
Here are a couple of photos from our rehearsal;
The soloists rehearsing, Mezzo-Soprano, Tenor and the fabulous Bass
And then there's us... I'm the one with my arm leaning on the back of the chair. I was amazed that I was actually in the photo, I never am, but getting the back of me is quite something.
Unfortunately, we are not allowed to record the music, not that I would know how do do that and get the video on here anyway, and I'm not sure if there are photos yet of the actual performance. Thanks once again for your interest.
Righto, on to my card;I was
I was quite pleased with how this turned out, it's my take on a sample in Creative Stamping Magazine using the free stamps. I made it for a friend who is having a bit of a struggle just now with her health. She has received it and pleased to say she liked it. The blooms are embossed with Wow powder and painted with Starlight Paints, Papers are various bits from pads I've had for ages.
Well the sun is streaming in the window and showing up that they are needing cleaned, Teallach makes such a mess of them. He is loving this weather, out most of the day and staying in at night, but I do have to get up for him about 5 o'clock as he comes up to let me know that he needs to go out.
That's me for now, so take care and keep cosy and see you soon,
