Good Morning blogland! are you enjoying the Games? I have to confess I have seen very little of them. I purposely watched, and got over-excited at Becky Adlington's Silver achievement, but other than that, I've not seen anything. I did watch the Opening Ceremony though - wasn't it magnificent! For the first couple of minutes I was squirming with embarrassment - OMG, what was all that cheesiness about? I felt like I was watching a poor-man's production of Lord of the Rings,but then it picked up! Oh Wow did it pick up!! I loved it when the children of the 4 British Nations sang their anthems (sorry Wales, I wish they'd chosen something other than Guide me O thy Great Redeemer, really NOT one of my favourites) - I LOVE Jerusalem, Danny Boy always makes me cry, and for some reason, Flower of Scotland always makes me want to stand up and belt it out with them!! LOL! (My grandad was a Scot, so maybe there's a drop of highland blood in me!).
Anyway, over at Midweek Magnolias this week, we were gripped by Olympic Fever and we decided to host a little competition of our own. As long as our players stick to the rules (i.e. stick to the theme and only enter your project in 5 or less blog challenges) everyone will be in with a chance of winning one of THREE fab mystery prizes from Magnolia. We will also be handing out a Bronze, Silver and Gold award for our winners to display on their blogs - totally unique and will only ever been given once! Surely it's got to be worth it for the kudos alone???
So, feeling inspired by the opening ceremony, I made my card this week based on the arrival of the Nations, and here is Tilda, proudly flying the flag for Team GB:
Tilda is coloured with Faber Castell pencils and the papers are from Portobello Road. The badge is computer generated.
Well that's my lot for today. Please go and visit my lovely teamies at Midweek Magnolias - they have created some amazing projects - as usual!!
And before I go, I want to wish my little girlie a very Happy Birthday - she's 15 today, and still behaving like a pup!! Happy Birthday Rosie, bless her!!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week. xxx
