Faster, Higher, Stronger.....

I figured it was time to post a new card....While I may not have posted anything since last Friday, I have been busy stamping.  It's feast or famine around here. We are enjoying summer and Tim's new work schedule, but my stamping time has been seriously cramped. LOL! I got lucky today and had a full 5 hours TO MYSELF!!! I chose to stamp. 

I inked up the sweet à la mode-Go for the Gold.  The Olympics are fast approaching.  It's always  an exciting time. Plus this week my boys are at basketball camp and I love seeing them work so hard.  I think it's important to always try your best...Faster, Higher,Stronger.....it's a great motto! 

I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch. Sigh....I would love to put my hat in the ring for her design team, but I know when my plate it full.  For now, I'll just keep using the sketches when I can. But you might interested....check out the details here on her post. 

Check, out these stars....they were cut with the new Stacking Stars Die-namics. AND that gorgeous paper is MFT's Kraft cardstock. I have been using Fossil for years now, love that... BUT this KRAFT is beautiful.  It's hard to say in words what the difference is between the two, but I have to say I am really loving the look of the Kraft. 

I also used the Rectangle Stax 2 for my à la mode panel. Made it quick and easy to mount up my image. There are a pair of teeny FISHTAIL FLAG STAX  banners added to this card as well.
