Let The Games Begin!

Good morning everyone! What did you think of the Opening Ceremony?? I never knew the Queen could skydive - WOW!!!!! I loved it when all the Mary Poppins came down from the sky and the torch was just breathtaking.

I should really have done an Olympic themed card for today but I haven't. So here you are:

I have used the digi Emily Rose Hatter by Little Miss Muffet and coloured her with Copics and a touch of Prismas.  The paper is from Daisy Bucket and I have embossed the Coredinations a circles embossing folder.  The image and computer generated sentiment have been cut and matted with Spellbinders Nesties.  The button is from a MFT Dienamics die and I have triple embossed it with UTEE.  The flower is a MFT Dienamics die and the twine and gems are from my stash.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Well I am getting ready today because Melissa, my daughter-in-law, and Harrison, my grandson, are coming tomorrow for a week - whoop whoop!!I have been really looking forward to it.  I have done my DT cards for next week but, apart from those, I won't have time to blog as Harrison will keep me on the go from dawn to dusk lol!  Thanks for looking, enjoy your weekend and take care xx

The Olympic opening ceremony was brilliant. I loved it all. I said to my husband that the Queen should have wore a pair of trousers, showing all her draws, Lol.
I have some pics on my blog of a runner with the Olympic Torch.

Have a great week with your Grandson & Daughter-in-law x

Your card is lovely.
