Packing Up

It's almost over... the Olympics that is! Do you know, I'm really going to miss it. It's been a fabulous fortnight of sport and I have loved every minute of what I have watched (and I have to be honest, there isn't a lot that I haven't watched).

As I write Team GB has just won it's 29th Gold Medal thanks to Anthony Joshua in the Boxing. Absolutely fabulous.  And if the vision of this Olympics was to inspire a future generation then I think I can say they've certainly inspired our boys! Scott, in particular, just wants to do everything and who are we to stand in his way.

Now, I had thought about doing a card like this for the start of the Olympics but it somehow seems better to be doing it now after a fabulous performance by Team GB.




Challenges I'd like to enter:

Cupcake Craft - Bunting
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Summer Fun
Craft Your Days Away - Olympic Dreams
Saturday Challenge - Gold, Silver or Bronze (she's wearing a Gold Medal!)

Bunting Stamp from Party This Way set, Stampin Up

Thanks for dropping by today. 

Hugs. Susan xxx

What beautiful colouring - I more than a little jealous as I just can't seem to get these images right. This is a gorgeous card. I'm definitely missing the Games and let's be honest, it's not that often that we get to say, as a nation, that we did something really well. Maybe instead of being the "Legacy" director we should put Seb Coe in charge of education or the NHS ... a little bit of politics there xx
