Its Really Exciting....

 My Auntie Fiona's Hubby is going to be at the Olympics!!! Hes a Referee for the Basketball. I thought I would make a card for him as its really a once in a lifetime achievement. Well Done Bill!! I texted Fee and asked what the colours of his Outfit would be and its Sky Blue with a Panama Hat. So My Wee Lad has a Sky Blue Outfit on. 
 I am still loving the Papermania Portobello Road papers, they are yummy. Ive gone with them and a border too with the Union Jack on it. I knew Annie over at Digi My World would have some super Digital Basketball Players and she didnt disappoint me!!
