Thinking of You

Hello there and happy Monday!  I have a feeling my posts are going to be short the next two weeks.  It's only day three of the Olympics and I'm spending a lot of time in front of the TV.  I might try to pull out my Project Life stuff while I watch and get a touch of scrapbooking done.  We'll see if I'm motivated after work! 

Anyways, on to my card for today.  I took this week's CASE Study Challenge and went super CAS with it.  I loved the medallions (no surprise there) and the bird so I went for a super clean interpretation!  Hope you like it and that your week gets off to a fabulous start!  Below is the gorgeous CASE Study inspiration card.

ah, our lovely SAF set! You have really given it some good love :) I need to get it out more often! I can't keep up with all the Olympic sports! There seems way more in the summer ones than the winter....I have an app on the ipad to help keep track of medals and schedule :)

love the faded look of the bird and the faint background stamps-we are the opposite, so far only watched the opening!

Great CASE :) Love the soft blue medallions in the BG.

I hear you - soooo hard to get things done when the Olympics are on! I'm sooo supset we'll be away for five days of it!

I love your CAS take on this, Lynn! I have not been catching as much of the Olympics as I was planning to....but also have not been crafting either. :0/

Great card, these are beautiful colors together. I'd say I'd be joining you on the couch, but weirdo over here in California has no cable... and while the internet certainly has all one needs, it's just not the same. So don't sit with me on a trivia game for the Olympics, I'm bound to lose.

Beautiful, soft colors on a beautiful, soft card Lynn. I think the last time I used that set was when we played a Carbon Copied together.

I'm right there with you. We've been watching ever so much of the Olympics, too! Your card is beautiful! LOVE that color palette! Swoon!

What a lovely card!...would love to know more about the stamps used !..especially the bird and sentiment.

It's rather addictive watching the games and so much choice on what sport to see as well!!!
Love what you did with Kristi's card and super muted colours too :0)
