Loving the Paralympics!!

I enjoyed the Olympics but really am enjoying the Paralympics even more.  Yes I'm impressed by what can be achieved regardless of your physical ability but I am most impressed by the whole attitude of all the competitors whether they win or not, they all seem so happy to be taking part. I am especially enjoying Ellie Simmonds as she comes from Aldridge which is an area of Walsall where I live and she is just amazing. Today the post box in Aldridge was painted gold but I'm sure the town will be painted red on her return.
I've a couple of cards to share with you today.
I've used a digital image of the pussy cats and the sentiment is a digi too (Can't remember where from) . I took both images into Word and created the stitched border in Word too. I used copics as the colouring medium and added a touch of stickles on the necklace.
Couldn't go without sharing another card made using Jayne's stamps and a Keepsake board. This card was inspired by ones on Jaynes website
Well I'm off to watch more of the Paralympics.
Thanks you for visiting

  1. Morning Pat,

    Like you I'm enjoying the Paralympics, the performances these athletes are putting in is absolutely awe inspiring. And Ellie Simmonds is a revelation, I couldn't believe how she came from so far back in the freestyle to win in record time last night.

    Great collection of cards BTW.
