What an exciting week!

Hello there...Happy Tuesday! Hope you're keeping well!

Sorry I've been missing for a couple of internet has been playing up, along with everyone elses who has Virgin Media in Aldershot! I had to wait several days for the engineer to pay me a visit...but I'm all fixed now!

Sooo....I've had a busy week...I went to see the Olympic weight lifting at Excel. I enjoyed it soooo much, I'm so pleased that my sister convinced me that I wanted to go!! Those muscley men are amazing (and wear very tight clothes!!).

I'm not sure why we've got union jacks - there were no Team GB members in this class!!

As well as the actual competition, we also got to watch a medal ceremony, which was soooo cool!!

After the Olympics Joe and I hopped down to Bournemouth for a couple of days. The sunshine held, although it was a little cooler than the week before. We paddled in the sea, walked in the gardens, went to the aquarium and saw a performance of Starlight Express. It was so nice to escape!!

Right....time for some cards me thinks!! I've got two for you this evening as I have been catching up on some challenges....

For my first card I've used this cute Pollycraft image, along with some fab blue papers. I've punched some of the light blue paper with my Martha Stewart punch.

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

Love to Create - punches & dies
Polka Doodles - banners and bunting

My second card is made up of funky black and white paper, some blue and white polka dot paper and some pink ribbon. I've used plain black paper to frame the card and the image. The image is from LOTV and I have coloured it with my Promarkers.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - inspiration
DYSU - polka dots

Pop by all the blogs mentioned to see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created.

Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx
