Olympic Fever...

Hello, hope you're enjoying the summer so far.  The weather here has been beautiful...but we've spent a lot of time indoors this past week keeping up with all the Olympic activities!  It's been so much fun.  The gymnastics, swimming and diving are our favorites so far.  So proud of the Canadian women's gymnastics team who came in 5th in the all around competition.  We've never even been in the finals before.  :)
 Here is a great site to check out if you don't have time to watch The Olympics live.

Today, I'm playing along with CAS-ual Friday (CFC63) challenge to use lime, aqua and navy.  This is also for the this week's sketch challenge at Less is More (sketch 78).

I used Cuttlebug's Seeing Spots embossing folder, PTI's scalopped edge die, Offray ribbon, DCWV sticker and SU 'For All You Do' sentiment heat embossed in white.

This card is on it's way to a very special lady, Virginia Lu.  Earlier in the week, I messaged her to see if she could help me out with a couple of SRM stickers that I needed for a project.  Yesterday I find not only the stickers that I needed, but also several others all in one of Virginia's gorgeous cards.  I was really touched and so grateful.  Thanks again Virginia!

Thanks for dropping by today,

The colors and placements of the elements are so gorgeous!Can't wait to receive it in the mail! Thanks also for the well wishes on my anniversary! And YAY for Canada ( we watch the Olympics around the clock--LOL)!
