The Greatest Show on Earth is About to Start!!

Good morning everyone and here we are at Friday again! I'm so excited because today sees the start of the Olympics and I'm really looking forward to seeing the Opening Ceremony. Its been so lovely to see all the different people carrying the torch and the look of determination on some of their faces as they have struggled to carry it has certainly brought a tear to my eye.

Without further ado here is my card for today:


The digi is Marley Bloom by Pollycraft and he has bee coloured with Copics and Prismas.  The papers are digital and free from Shabby Princess called Festival and they are available here.  I have used Spellbinders Nesties for the image, mat and sentiment.  The flowers are a Tonic punch and the butterfly is made with Dienamics Die.  The ribbon is from Ribbon Girl.  I have computer generated the sentiment.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Digi Doodles - Let's Get Stripey

I am off to the hairdressers this morning and then we are seeing my DH's grandchildren and daughter for lunch and I think they are coming back here or maybe it will be the park (weather permitting).  Have a great day whatever you are doing, thanks for looking and take care xx
