Olympic Mice

Hello, it's Monday again, it comes round so quickly. I hope you’re all OK and have had a lovely weekend. Are you enjoying the Olympics?
It is time for another theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, this time it was our lovely Heather's turn to choose the theme and she chose, can you guess.................... "Olympics" - Use something on your creation that ties in with the theme, plenty of ideas on the challenge blog.
I found this challenge a bit out of my comfort zone as I don't like sport and I don't watch the Olympics, I didn't really have an appropriate stamp so I had to transform one to suit, see my recipe at the bottom to see what i used. I cut my Olympic rings with my nestie circles and then used the same colour glitter all over the rings to make them sparkle. If you look at the stamp I used they normally have hearts in their hands, I cut the hearts away and replaced with some Union jacks.
Of course you must use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie to join in.

We are sponsored by Pink Gem Designs who will be giving one lucky winner a "Best Of The British Digi Kit"
