And here's the finished card...

Hi Best Blogging Buddies...

And a big welcome to my new followers that came via my video tutorials  .... thank you for wanting to see my makes. hope you're not disappointed!

Today's card is the product of the videos.... it's the finished card.....  hope you like!! 

The image is from All That Scraps..... she's a cute digi called Butterfly Lucy and is a delight to colour..

Card Recipe:
Now.....  today we saw history in the making....  The Olympic Torch relay passed within a mile or so of our house, so we stood waving our Union Jacks while hundreds of police outriders, then the coaches, then finally, the guy carrying the torch went by!!

ANYWAY.......  he looks very happy, but methinks his outfit was a little tight in parts????? LOL!  We went to see John Bishop last night in Harrogate, and he was telling us that he had to carry the torch in Cheshire... and he said that the outfit may have been designed by Stella McCartney, but it was defo made by Lidl.... as it was the most flamable material he'd ever worn...  hehe .... 150% polyester he reckoned!!  So that is why the flame is carried so high....  they're worried they're gonna catch light!!  We giggled all night with him, he's such a funny guy....  much better than on TV when he talks soooooooooo slowly...  but as an ex-scouser myself, I think he does that so non-scousers understand what he's talking about!!

Right..... my lovely OH has just come home from work... so I'm off to have a cuddle!

Big Hugs and Happy Crafting

PS.... MANAGED eventually to get the photo upright!  Seems it doesn't have to be a jpeg, it has to be saved with another file extension... so this is a PNG!  But I DID IT!! HEHE X

  5. Really great to see the finished card and the hair looks brilliant. love the pinks and even the clouds have a glittered pink lining (what happened to silver)lol.
    We get the torch on Sunday so we will be there also, more for Grandsons than our selves but it is history in the making (even if it is a bit of a cheat) and we will never see it again.
