We had a great week showcasing Northern Ireland to the world with the Police and Fire Games in town, and then on their last night what do we do? A full scale riot in the middle of Belfast!  Talk about letting yourself down a bucket full and all the hard work of thousands of people forgotten in the name of the few!  This pic did make me laugh though ... you just couldn't make it up!


  1. Fabulous card Lynne, love the fun penguin image. Hugs, Claire x

  2. What a cute card, Lynne. I really like your snowball ribbon and the little penguins are so fun.

    I was hoping I could see some of my humidity to you, but you didn't want it, huh?

    Oh, yes...a few always have to spoil things. I see what you mean about the picture. It does kind of make one smile. Something's just not right. Ha I'm sure it was a grand week otherwise.
