Go Team GB

Didn't think I'd be getting in to the Olympics, but I am . Britain seems to be doing well, so come on team GB.
My card is a tribute to the games. I've used a House Mouse stamp, from a Joanna Sheen set called " weight lifting". The little mouse is lifting sweets attached to a cotton bud stick as weights, now that is cute! I've used red,white and blue colours to match the portobello road paper,by Do Craft. The glitter letter stickers are from hobby craft.I coloured with promarkers and added highlights with a white gel pen.

challenges entered :

House Mouse and friends : It's all about the olympics
Joanna Sheen : animal crackers
Paper Play : sports/olympics

rubbish weather here again, given up on Summer, I had the gas fire on last night,mind I am a bit nesh (northern for soft and hates the cold ).
happy crafting . janex

Your coloring is just superb! Lifting was so lucky when the fella dropped the bar on his neck! It has been an exciting Olympics, and your card is fantastic.
