LIM - week 22 SHADES of BLUE

I was struggling what to do for this week on Less is More for a while. Then I decided to use my newest poppy stamp and make it a Himalayan poppy. The paper I have used is textured and I have had it since year dot. I used both sides of it to give different shades of colour. The sentiment at the bottom is from a PTI set.

Yesterday I went to a Rock Choir taster session. You may have seen it on the TV. This is a new choir for the area and they were queuing out of the door to get in.  I used to sing a lot. When I was at school I was in the choir and then we had a new music teacher who held auditions. You had one chance to hit the middle C she played on the piano, I didn't and I was out, I have been scarred by that experience ever since. Well I had a great time yesterday, no auditioning, so I signed up, but now have to wait until term starts in September to get another fix.

Absolutely LOVE this card, it's beautiful.

As for the choir, you must be excited, I'd love to have a go, my voice has gone from soprano to near enough bass in singing, perhaps because I haven't done it for so many years, that's my excuse anyway lol

Oooh love this Lynn. That stamp is great and looks fabulous paper pieced. Well done on joining the Rock Choir. I watched it on TV and was soon hooked. It had such a feel good factor and everyone enjoyed themselves so much. I was in the school choir but I`m a bit croaky now.
