The Great British Blog Hop



For my GIVEAWAY( open world wide) please click HERE


Happy Thursday!  Welcome to day 2 of the Great British Blog Hop!  With everything that's been going on in the UK (not to mention the OLYMPICS happening now!!) a few of my British  friends (and fellow WOYWWers) decided to have a blog hop to celebrate all the happenings!  Even though I live in the US,  I really wanted to be a part of the celebration. After all, my last name IS England...no joke, it really is!

I wanted to do something Olympics related while also celebrating where the Olympics is being held.  With that in mind, I came up with this cute little card...I hope you like it!



I was at a crop at a friend's house yesterday, and she just happened to have some images that would work!  I layered them and then added 5 different colors of Martha Stewart glitter to the Olympic rings to make them pop off the page a little.

You're almost at the end of our fun little hop.  Your next (and last) stop is our charming hostess, Sunshine Girl.  If you started here, or missed someone along the way, here's the complete list of participants:

That Olympics image is better than most of the professional stuff at the moment - I love it. I think Julia might have to steal that..she's very into things patriotic!!
Amy, you are welcome to come and ping things across my room any time you like!! My cats would adore you, lol!
