Craft Your Days Away Ch# 51 - Olympic Dreams

Good morning and hope you have all had a good week.  We have a new challenge for you over at Craft Your Days Away and we have gone with the theme of Olympic Dreams.  You cannot escape the Olympics on the tv at the moment but I have to say I am really enjoying it and aren't Team GB doing well!

Here is my card:

We are sponsored this fortnight by the fab Bugaboo Stamps who have a great range of sporting themed images as well as images for every occasion  you can think of and they are offering the lucking winner the choice of 7 digis.

For my card I have used a Bugaboo image called cheerleader girl and have gone with a real patriotic feel and added some Olympic images from the internet.

We look forward to seeing all your great Olympic creations this fortnight and please check out my teamies sporty creations too at CYDA.

I had a great week in Cromer 2 weeks ago now and was really lucky to have chosen the hotest week of the year to go!  We had 5 roasting days at the beach and my boys even got to swim in the sea.  On my return I found that I was the lucky winner of the very talented Vicky's candy.  Thank you very much Vicky and here is what I chose from My Craft Heart who have so much choice it took me ages to choose what I wanted!!

Hope you all have a great weekend and come on team GB!

Hugs Sarahxx
