Midweek Magnolias #22 The Olympics

A very good morning all,  Are you all enjoying the Olympic games,  I was amazed and delighted to see our men take a Bronze medal in the Gymnastic Team event.   What a fantastic performance they gave.

Any way I'm getting side tracked!!   I'm here to let you all know that a new challenge has just begun over at 

With our theme being Olympics/sport or if you don't have an appropriate stamp then why not the colors of your national flag.  

I didn't have a sporting image but I did have this sweet Tilda waving her flag so I thought I would adapt it slightly by trying to draw the Union Jack on - please don't look to closely cause it's rubbish.  I've used paper that I had in my stash for yonks and stamped out a couple of banners using paper handkerchiefs, adding a couple of zip flowers and a sentiment.

I do hope you will join us and do pop over and take a peek at the amazing creations that Team A have made for you this week. You will be enthused with their talent.

Thank you so much for popping in to visit I hope you can find a little bit of inspiration from my card.  Do have a wonderful day.
