We're Hopping At Polka Doodles!

Good morning folks, hoping you're all having a good week and sorry for the lack of visiting - I'm up to my eyes in various stuff at the moment and there aren't enough hours in the day to do everything! I have matchsticks propping up my eyelids!
Over at Polka Doodles this week, we have a Blog Hop combined with the challenge as we're celebrating the Olympics being held in Britain at the moment (the torch is coming here very soon too) so we would like to see your creations in Red, White and Blue with a British theme to them.
Here's what I made:

I've used another of the cute Emma Canning Downloads and this one is called Paige - I Love You, perfect for all those love themed cards so mine is a special celebration one. I coloured her with Promarkers using Prismacolor pencils to add some detail then die cut her into an oval and inked the edges.
I used red dotty backing paper from Nikky's Britannia kit and hearts (I glittered the red one) from the Welcome Home Kit of the Studio 12 Picknix Collection 1 CD. The union jack heart is also from the Britannia kit and was coloured with Promarkers.
I added a piece of pearly blue card embossed with a Cuttlebug hearts folder, then embellished with a flower, bow and some red heart flourishes die cut with a Sissix die. A sentiment from Sugarplum Daisy finished off my card.

Now for the hop details as you need to do both this and the challenge to have a chance at the fabulous prizes - we have a Studio 12 Picknix Collection 1 CD for the winner and 2 runners up will receive an Emma Canning Download.
You should have arrived here from the lovely shell's blog and you need to head on next to the lovely

but don't forget to leave me a comment so that we know you've been to visit.  If you get lost along the way, just hop back to the challenge blog to be set on the right track. Good luck!
