Olympic Lag

I had heard all over that NBC would be airing the Opening Ceremonies on the internet via a live web feed. Well... when the time came I was waiting and searching to only find out that NBC had decided that Americans would have to wait and see the Opening Ceremonies at 7:30 pm EST tonight!! Three hours after the Olympic Opening Ceremonies had happened. So.. am I suppose to just sit here and pretend that the Opening Ceremonies are going on? Oh no.. I find their thinking very wrong. I was really looking forward to sitting here with Kevin and watching the ceremonies. He is watching them and I am listening to them on his TV. How wrong is that!! We should have been able to watch them together. It really upsets me! Ughhhh .. so that is my venting...  I don't like Olympic Lag! And the fact that I can go online and see highlights of what has already happened.. well .. that just ticks me off too!! LOL Can you tell I'm upset?

I have been sitting here working on another card. I finished it.. hated it LOL and then took it apart and changed the papers. I like it better now. I did drop the ink pad on the edge of the image though so I had to come up with my fix it LOL The Stars ;) Hey.. it worked LOL

All of the papers are scraps.. the random buttons. All glittered up are the stars and the Believe. The ribbon is American Crafts Ruban Premium White. The edges were inked with ColorBox Warm Green Fluid Chalk. I colored her with Copic: E000, E00, E11 for the skin, E50, E51 and E55 for the hair, the greens were G20, G24, G28, the red are R24, R27, R29... I highlighted the white areas with E40. Hmmmm.. and I forgot to color her Bell!! So I'm going to have to go back and color that LOL
