A little drinkie-poos!

Hello there....soooo is everyone enjoying the Olympics?? Remember on Friday I said that I wasn't sure whether I'd get to see the whole opening ceremony...well Joe had a change of heart and we watched the entire thing and I'm so glad we did! What an amazing opening ceremony....wonderfully British and fab music throughout....plus the Queen parachuting with James Bond.....AWESOME!!

In fact I've been much more into this Olympics malarkly than I ever thought I'd be....I've been watching the cycling road races, lots of male gymnastics (very nice!!), some rowing and some volleyball! I'm off to see the weight lifting on Tuesday evening....can't wait!

Anyway....as you know I'm on annual leave at the moment and I've decided to relax and have a couple of drinkie poos over the last couple of evenings! Today's card is inspired by my favourite kind of tipple....


....you can't beat a cocktail, especially in the summer months....pretty, fruity and often pink! What more could a girl want?? Cocktails always remind me of the summertime and fab girlie holidays!

I've gone for a tropical pink and green colour combo for this card as I thought it was quite summery. I've coloured my image with my Promarkers, making sure I used lots of bright colours. I've added some cute punched flowers and then added some bling!

I have to say that I love this card...it really makes me smile!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges....

The morning Rachel,

I didn't intend sitting up to watch Olympic opening ceremony either, but I'm so glad I did because it was quite spectacular and totally British.

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely card with this at Allsorts this week, yummy looking cupcakes as well.
