Olympic Gold Medal

...And the Gold Medal for the card that's taken the longest to make goes to...
drumroll....
this one above!
I reckon it's taken me about 2 weeks... yes, you read that right... 2 weeks to make this card. You know when you go to bed and the most 'brilliantest' of ideas pop into your head and you doze off rejuvenated, inspired with mojo-overload and then when you sit there, stash poised and NOTHING happens.
I had big plans for this card, it was going to ooze chocolate, it would look almost edible. 2 weeks later, lord knows how much binned stash, glue and rejected papers I got through. I am pleased with it now but it's a million miles from my my original idea, sometime this happens...not normally for this long!
Anyway, moving on...it's much beloved's birthday next week, off to see if I can get hold of an Australian Olympic banana coloured, cycling outfit.
