365 Cards - #182 - Sporty Saturday

Well I was not going to do the challenge today over at 365 Cards because I had nuthin' and I mean nuthin' in my stash that I could use, I cannot draw to save myself so drawing a ball or whatever was not going to work either. Sherry, bless her came to my rescue and sent me two images that she was going to use but didn't and I chose the one below on my card. That is the only reason I have a card at all today, so my thanks to you Sherry *grins*

My card is simple and clean and that is all that you are gonna get out of me today because sports related anything is not my forte and this was a definite challenge for me lol. Don't get me wrong I love watching our country at the Olympics etc but that is as far as it goes now that the girls are grown and no longer participate in sports related activities. I guess it will start all over again once the grandchildren are going to school. Okay I am off for the day as mine is just starting.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
The Gypsy

Supplies: SU Kraft cardstock. Image and sentiment computer generated. Ribbon from my stash. Ranger Distress Inks. The image and sentiment are on copy paper as my printer is playing hardball (lol) and not wanting to print on cardstock at the moment. Fiskars designer paper.

Sounds like the 'sports' theme is a challenge for a lot of us! Probably good it was today, it would have bummed me out all week if it had been Monday!

Michelle, fabulous and I told you the internet is your friend especially when it comes to finding an image or two for a card challenge.

oh yes sherry is the clip art queen, she finds so many fantastic ones!! how sweet of her to send you one. i and dh went to j's to shop for items to make todays card. i almost got out without buying more paper but.....dh said "oh these are great, you need to get them" and so i now have the new indian summer stacks by dcwv! if i buy anymore paper i will need to add a room on lol but at least my sweet dh enjoys "helping" me shop at m's and j's :) off to make my card now.

Sherry is just too sweet! Your card turned out cute, and now, just think - you have a masculine card on hand for the next event! I don't LOVE masculine cards either!!! Great job!

I about drove myself crazy doing this challenge today - I think it would have been better to let my children draw one up in the end lol I think you did a wonderful job - it's simple but not TOO simple (ahemlikeminelol) - wonderful job :)
