Getting ready for London 2012!

It's my month to be GDT for the CMLI challenge and I think I might have got a bit carried away with making sample cards...  oh dear.  I guess that just means that you are in for a lengthy post- lol!
Anyway, I'm rather taken with the fact that the Olympics will be held in the Uk this time since I think it is probably a once in my lifetime event.  I was extremely lucky to get tickets to the swimming heats in the first round of ticket allocations this time last year.  They are actually a 30th birthday present to my friend and so we are going together on 31st July.  I will skive the end of my molecular simulation(!) summer school and she  is scribing hard in the office to all hours to be able to submit her PhD thesis by the opening ceremony!
So, the theme for this months CMLI challenge (which will open 30th June and close 21st July before my summer school) is 'be inspired by London 2012'.  And if you want any ideas, here are my collection of cards so far:
The background text paper is one I made.  Help yourself if you want:
Swimming, using a DigiStamp Boutique image:
Celebrating/Patriotic using a DigiStamp Boutique image:
Cycling using a Pollycraft image:
Sailing using a Pollycraft image:
And finally patriotic with London Lofty:
Two other cards which I posted recently (one a Patriotic and the other a football card) were ones I also made with this challenge in mind.
I will enter these cards into this weeks I love Promarkers (anything goes) and Cute Card Thursday (patriotic) challenges and this months DigiStamp Boutique competition.
And in case you need any more inspiration, then if you are a member of CMLI on Craftbubble and enter the challenge then you are in with a chance of winning a little prize.
