Favorite Sports

I just can't express how much I love the Olympics. I look forward to it every two years. I find such joy watching all of these athletes who have worked so hard for so long participate in these events. And they are so peaceful and kind to each other. I just love it!

I do have my favorite sports.. I am REALLY enjoying the women's soccer, volleyball and beach volleyball. Those are three of my favorite all time sports! And they are doing so well! It is so exciting!! I really enjoyed watching the archery competition this year too! Who knew! I always enjoy watching the swimming competitions, but there are just so many swimming events! I even enjoyed watching some of the outdoor bicycle races this year.

Sports I don't understand... Tennis.. maybe if I understood it a bit more I might enjoy it better? Maybe.. I just don't know LOL Judo.. what is Judo all about? I thought it was a martial arts competition, but it seems to be more wrestling to me.. I found it very odd. And then there are those that I can watch a little bit of them, but then I get restless LOL They would be the water polo, hockey type games. Oh and basketball.. We have amazing basketball teams, but I have a hard time sitting there watching them. Basketball just doesn't do it for me. Then there are those that I just can't watch.. I tried.. I really did!!  Badminton, Table Tennis, Synchronized Swimming. Now, don't get me wrong.. these athletes are still amazing and I know they have all trained so hard.. Just not my cup of tea.

What would I like to see?  Hmm.... Grid Iron.. good ole American Football!! Now wouldn't that be fun LOL! Grueling Rugby.. now that would be fun! And what are they bringing to Rio?? I think they are bringing Rugby to Rio.. I'm not positive.. but I believe they are bring Golf. Yuck! LOL I will watch paint dry thank you.. LOL No.. I'm not a golfer.. and I can't imagine sitting there and watching it. I know I know.. another great sport.. again! Just not my cup of tea ;)

So what about you? What are your favorites... least favorites... want a sport added?

Here is a card I've worked on for a couple of days.. I've figured out that I can only seem to get a card finished every other day during the week. It is just too hard to get anything more done when you work all day. It doesn't help that the Olympics are on and a lot of my time is spent looking at the TV LOL!!

I used a bunch of scraps that I had..Basic Grey, Oh Baby! Boy. The planets are Itty Bitty from the Unity Stamp Company. It is called Solar Elem.. and I just love that stamp! the "You're Out Of This World" is from Market Street Stamps - Blast Off. I stitched on this card.. I colored the planets with my Prismacolor Pencils. I used my Brilliance Graphite Black to stamp the sentiment. That's it.. pretty simple card.
