Since my last post, I've been busy with chorus activities. Our Director has been conducting small group rehearsals on choreography at a mirrored studio - very fun! Then he couldn't do one scheduled session last week so my friend JoAnn & I ran it (we're on the chorus Visual Team). The previous week I joined a group of 13 from chorus to sing at the VA Hospital in St Cloud MN. It was fun to sing for the veterans who've done so much for our freedom! Part of the event was a sing-along and one sweet gentleman got so into it, he started doing a solo of My Wild Irish Rose. The aide with him said she hadn't seen him smile like that in a while :) Another gentleman was dancing to our music, joined by his aide - so great to bring joy to our audience!
Today I'm sharing a card made with a beautiful cafe scene from the August My Monthly Hero kit by Hero Arts.
Supplies: Paper - Neenah Classic Crest Solar White; Momenta Marble Pastel;
Paper Studio yellow A2 card & red; Poptone Black Licorice
Stamp & Die - Hero Arts August 2018 My Monthly Hero Kit
Other - Copic Markers, Joy ultra thin foam
I die cut the scene from white card stock and colored most of it with Copic Markers. I cut it a second time, just the awning portion, in red and then inlaid those pieces into the white. Stamped the sentiment (also from the kit) and hand doodled the cafe sign. Done!
That's it for today. Hope you're enjoying these last days of summer. We've been experiencing a lot of rain but are still behind on our rainfall for the summer. Looks like it'll be a sunny holiday weekend though. Thanks for stopping!!
