A Little Mozart!

Good Afternoon Blogging Friends, Are you all enjoying the Bank Holiday?  Hoping you are having fine weather.
Thank you all for your lovely comments on my last card, love to read them and that you take the time to pop into see what I'm up to.

I'm having a quiet day at home, Alistair is away for a hill walk, now that he is retired he can get out and about when the weather is fine and takes every opportunity to do so,  leaves me some me time so I've been pottering about and manage a card. Here it is;
This is for our friend Dougie's Big 60th, and I wanted a musical theme as he is one of the merry band of minstrels of the Monday night group.
I've used; Just Inklined digi stamp, coloured with a mixture of Pro and Flex Markers. Kraft card embossed with a SB Musical embossing folder, Kanban paper and Adorable Scorable card., LOTV sentiment, cut with Xcut die. Marianne, Treble Clef die and Card Candy.
I would rather have used an 8x8 card, but couldn't find any, the 5x7 is not a shape I really like using, but I'm fairly pleased with how it's turned out, the main thing is that Dougie will like it and I'm sure he will.

Choral night later on, and the pressure is on now as our concert is on 18th of May, really only two practise sessions left, before the Canadian choir joins us the night before the concert.  I'm away now to have a little sing to myself and go over the Latin/German words which I can barely get my tongue round.

Enjoy the remainder of the day and hope to see you soon,
Kate x
