Challenge: Olympics

Helllloooooo there!  Did you miss us??  We we sure missed you guys but as with everything - sometimes a wee break is in order!  Now that we're all rested and revived (:0| we're here to bring you a lovely new challenge.  With the biggest sporting event EVERto be hosted in the sunny country (!) we call home just around the corner, we are asking you all to join us in celebrating the London 2012 Olympic Games.  What an exciting time to be a Brit!

When I was searching my brain for an idea I thought about the medals and how, with a bit of old fashioned Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel I could fashion my very own gold medal - the closest I will EVER get I must add!  I impressed it with the globe image from Masculine Motifs and stamped the "You Did It" sentiment from Enjoy The Ride below it.

Card Recipe {You Did It}
Stamps: Masculine Motifs, Enjoy The Ride
Card: Stampers Select White, Pure Poppy
Ink: True Black
Other: Ribbon (Doodlebug), UTEE, Versamark

Over to Kate: "I am getting SOOO excited about the Olympics! The TV is going to be on A LOT during August and I'm lucky that I get to go to one of the events too. My card is a simple one dedicated to the team that I hope will do brillliantly - go Team GB!!

Card Details:
Stamps: Fresh Alphabet (PTI)
Card: Stamper's Select White, Hawai'in Shore, Harvest Gold, True Black, New leaf, Pure Poppy (PTI)

Other: Circle Nestabilities/Cuttlebug/Corner Chomper

Over to Aimes:
 Well what a week to start this challenge as the Olympic Torch makes its way through our neck of the woods on Friday! I always love to tune into the Olympics, no matter where in the world it's being hosted but there's certainly something extra-special to it when it's taking place on our doorstep *wink*
