An Inspiring Evening

Good Evening Everyone

I hope you are having a lovely weekend.  Mine has been relaxing so far and I had a great start to the weekend. I managed to get tickets to go to the Paralympics and saw the swimming at the Olympic Park last night.  

It was very exciting just to be able to go into the Olympic Park and walk around and even more amazing to go and see an event inside the Aquatic Centre.  It was a memorable evening.  All the athletes are truly inspiring and the whole evening was very emotional.  I felt humbled, inspired, excited, emotional and even tearful, particularly when the blind swimmers got their medals.  

I know we all have problems and issues in our lives but when you see what these athletes have overcome and what they can achieve, well it just completely inspires you and I feel very lucky that I was able to go.  I was going to share some photos but blogger won't let me as it says I have run out of free space!!  If anyone else has had this problem can you let me know what you did!

So, onto my card for this evening!  I have had this little lady coloured up for a while so I thought I would make her up!  Here is my card:

She is called Dandelion Clock from LOTV which you can get here. I coloured her with my copics and prisma pencils.  The paper is V&A Hanoverian and is very pretty which I thought was perfect for her!  I used my Doo Hickeys fence die again and also my MFT fresh cut grass die.  I also bought some labels dies from Doo Hickey as well and have used this to place my sentiment on.  Just added some flowers and pearls and lots of glamour dust!!!

I hope you like her!  I think she is gorgeous!

OK, I am off now, have just had some red wine put in front of me!! 

Have a great evening.
Love and Hugs
