Go Team USA!


So, I must admit, I am a HUGE fan of the Olympic Games! I can sit glued to the TV for hours watching all sorts of sports I don't necessarily follow all year. There is just something about the world's best athletes showcasing their incredible talents and sharing in the joy of everyone doing their best.

My dear friend Jane is starting a challenge blog and I knew immediately I wanted to play along! I Dream of Stamping's first challenge is to create a card using the colors of your favorite Country's flag or the colors of the Olympic rings. While I cheer for all the athletes, I must admit, I do cheer a little louder for Team USA!

This is one of my favorite stamps and I thought it would be perfect to use as a tribute to the Winter Games! Aren't those winter boots darling?

Stamps: Boots (Stamping Bella)
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select White, Night of Navy, Real Red, Night of Navy DSP, Real Red DSP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, Spica Glitter Pen in GOLD!!! :)
Accessories: MS Snowflake Punch, Stickles, SU Ribbon


Thanks for stopping by today! If you are a regular follower you will know my son's sleepover was on Friday. I will disclose that I "survived"...but only by a hair! Seriously, I need a nice long weekend away to catch up on my sleep. Who knew 10 year boys could play video games and watch movies sooo late??!! ;)

this is just perfect!! I love those boots (especially since I've not needed to put mine on for 3 days!)

I think the Olympics are like a big slumber party for me...good thing they only last for 17 days b/c I can't take staying up this late! I'm a little older than 10! lol :)
