EEEEEEEEEEEK!!!! House Mouse Mid way Reminder

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
A compilation of special critters!!!! today

with the Mid week Reminder at

where the theme has been chosen this time around by Heather, and it is

Olympics or Sporty

We are sponsored this challenge by:

One winner will get a $25 gift certificate from House-Mouse Designs

wow a fabulous prize

Here is my design team inspirational piece however please do hop over to see the rest of the teams wonderful creations.

I sort of ran out of images that were suitable so decided to go with lots of images in the Olympic rings
Edited to include what Lols of Lorraine's loft saw when she viewed my card, did not think of this myself but brill interpretation 
Fabulous card Kate :-) You captured the olympics perfectly with this stunner !:-) thr first one looks like his is measuring up the competition, the 2nd is ready for the celebration party, the 3rd is bribing a judge , lol, the fourth is obviously a gymnast and the last ones are all kissy after their win :-) 

A simple card although quite a task to create.  I used the next to smallest of the circle nesties. Cutting out the five colours of the rings.  I then used the next to smallest and smallest to create the border ring and the smallest to create the five image plates.  I then found five small images and stamped and coloured these in copics with a little Atyou Glitter pen here and there.  The difficulty was getting the rings in the right spacing, order and placement, after some fiddling I think I finally got there.  A small WRS sentiment has been added at the bottom with the base colour being black.
