So it's.. how many days til the Olympics officially starts? About.. 24? EXCITED MUCH!! Obviously.. I'm not huge on sports.. HA! Although I do love to watch certain events, like the diving and the gymnastics. I might also try and catch the BMX stuff this year too. On the TV, of course.
Not only that though.. it's LONDON who are hosting it this year. Like you didn't already know. I mean.. I'm not the biggest patriot you'll ever meet.. but I mean, it's gonna be a proud moment. Isn't it? 2012 hasn't been such a bad year for Great Britain.. events wise anywho.
So why am I actually rabbiting on about this?! WELL BECAUSE.. We've a new challenge over at Tiddly Inks today.. and the theme just so happens to be..
RED, WHITE AND BLUE.
Which are the colours of..? The union jack.. as well as many other flags from around the world. I thought this challenge would be the perfect opportunity to make something a little out of my comfort zone.. in terms of projects. So.. I went with a bunting flag. Just the one. Only small. It's still not a card though.. Go with me on this.. LOL!!
I used a brand new image to the Tiddly Inks Wryn family. She was just released last week.. meet..
I've coloured her using ProMarkers and FlexMarkers as usual. I really gotta work on adding more contrast to my hair colours!! So I've added a sky and grass background to the labels 18 and added her to the red bunting flag. I've added some WOC flowers, a little flag with 'Team GB' stamped in Real Red ink! with Lawn Fawn alpha stamps.
I've threaded the two brads with some red twill stripe ribbon, which I'll use to hang it from.. somewhere.. I haven't decided yet! LOL. To finish off the space at the top I've added three little Whimsy flags which I've fussy cut out - saves monies on the die! ;)
So there ya have it. Red, white and blooo!! Head over to the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog and see what my other teamies have whipped up!!
I'd like to enter this flag into these challenges:
- Incy Wincy Designs - Patriotism
I'm from the UK

So, just out of interest, I thought I'd add a link to the whole Olympic schedue - http://www.london2012.com/schedule-and-results/ just incase anyone is interested in the line up. I know I am. :)
I spent last night getting caught up with stuffs - until about half past one in the morning!! :/ Tired.com.
I also had a scroll through my blog.. and.. it appears I have absolutely NO photos from about.. three weeks ago and backwards. Wow. Goodness knows where they've disappeared to?! Maybe they'll come back one day? I'm not getting my hopes up though - Blogger is useless! :( Makes me sad. I used to like to look back at older projects and see how far I've come. Never mind!! On wards and up wards!!
Take it easy, whatever your Tuesday will bring!
