Since I last posted, my chorus, City of Lakes Chorus, had a successful 60th Anniversary show "60Carat Harmony" (April 14th) at Bethel University. Yes, the chorus (not me!) has been around for 60 years!! What a great history of camaraderie and harmony!
We sang 12 songs, including "How We Sang Today" with any past members from the past 60 years who wanted to come onstage. It was so fun to see some familiar faces! My former quartet, Chord Company which retired about a year + 1/2 ago, got to sing at the after show party we call an Afterglow. Here we are in the dressing room wearing our chorus costume. That's a lot of glitter there!
Here's a photo of the whole chorus, courtesy of Annette our videographer. Can you find the 4 of us? Hint - two are in the front row and two are in the center section.
And if you'd like to see a clip of the chorus singing "So Long Dearie", go here.
Speaking of anniversaries, here's card I made today for my parents' anniversary next Monday. I'm taking the latest Online Card Class - A Cut Above so I brought out a Tim Holtz die cut "Bird on a Branch". Since it was an anniversary card, I thought it should have 2 birds so I cut a mirror image & cut that bird off its branch. Added part of cut branch going down on the card. The inked background used the Distress Stain with Rock Candy Distress Stickles technique I learned in Tim's Creative Chemistry 101 online class. Very shimmery in real life. Stamps are from my favorite company, Hero Arts. The grey bird is stamped with the Newspaper Background; the blue bird is patterned paper from My Mind's Eye. I doodled a bit on the branch using my new Distress Markers. (Yes - they came into my LSS finally - the entire set!!) I am NOT a good doodler - oh well, my parents will love it anyway :)
Hope you had a fun and crafty weekend! Thanks for stopping by!!
