CraftyCatz Challenge 141..Olympics...



Good Morning blogland, Oh I am sooo late with my post again, so sorry..I have no excuse besides sheer lazyness, can hardly stay awake right now...lol..
Lets get on, this week at CraftyCatz we have a fab challenge for you, the OLYMPICS....chosen by our very lovely and multi talented Bridget.....
Don't get scared, you can put as little as a flag on your card or go the whole hog...lol...as long as it has something to do with the coming Olympics...so excited....lol...
Well, after racking my brains on this one, I went for the' desperate housewife' look....lol...oh don't pretend...we all know 'THAT' feeling...lol...
Two of Mo's bestest images were combined to get the look, his face is perfect don't ya think...lol...
coloured with Promarkers,flag images from Google and cut to make bunting, which is threaded on crochet cotton...the sentiment was just done on PC and cut out..(roughly...I know) by myself....I think thats it, not much to it really but it took me ages to get it how I wanted....lol....

We are sponsored this week by the brilliant Crimson Cloud....and one lucky person will be getting 3 lots of Die Cuts...good hey....

Thats all girls, am off to look for challenges, hope you all been having a good week, it's pouring here this morning, and the children are getting all excited and ready to break up for Summer hols....nearly choked then...what Summer..lol...
I am entering this into the following challenges...
Allsorts Red/White/Blue
Joanna Sheen...Circles...well I do have circles on the flags...
CraftRoomChallenge...Sports
Hope you'll come and join in the fun at CC,..till later, take care, hugs Janette.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Jackie said...

Absolutely brilliant, great card :o)
No, I don't work in photography, it's my hobby. I was an Archivist and Health and Safety rep. until they decided to push me out when I was 66. In those days they could do that but they knew that come the October of that year they wouldn't be able to use that excuse any more! So, nowadays I am a checkout operator at Morrison's :o)
