Challenges & Olympic

About a week or so ago, Love My Tapes were looking for product tester for their adhesive & tape products. So, I entered, wishing and hoping, and guess what??? Yippie yay ay... yours truly is one of the lucky winner. You can see the announcement here.

I can't wait to get the goodies and  try it out. I've been hearing good review about their adhesive and will definitely let you know what I think. I love sharing good finding.

Now, Papertrey Ink is doing another yummy color challenge. You can see all the challenge detail here. I don't have Spring Moss color inkpad, so I used Stampin Up! Mellow Moss color instead. That's  the closest I have. :) All stamps by Papertrey Ink. They have several color combo options and I chose Dawn McVey color combo.


Now, switching gear from card talk, I have to mention the Winter Olympic. Didn't you just love it? I think this winter Olympic was one of the best in history. I think all of the athletes went all out and many truly shine. I love Kim Yu-Na, the ice skater from South Korea. The way she skates just mesmerizing. And, did you watch Ryan Miller on ice hockey?? Love him. :) He did such a good job defending our turf. Yes, we we ended up with silver, but still to stop 139 shots out of 147?  He deserves the MVP title. That was truly an amazing game. I do have to thank my husband for getting me into loving ice hockey.

This Olympic really impressed me and I actually enjoyed watching most of the sports, which surprised me, since I am not a sporty type of person. I could discuss it on and on. I am officially addicted to the winter Olympic. :) And yes, I want to checkout Vancouver. Definitely on my list as a must see place to visit. Basically Canada in general. I am doing reseacrh on things to do and places to visit right now. Okay, enough rambling. Don't want to bored you with my Olympic gushing.  Hope you all have a lovely evening. Hugs, Vera

This is just beautiful, Vera! Love your butterflies! And I am so happy I was one of those lucky gals picked to product test as well! I will be interested to see what you come up with. :)
And about Kim Yu-Na - WOW! I loved her outfit, and she is an amazing skater!
Oh my gosh, my sentiments EXACTLY when it comes to Ryan Miller! I am now a (secondary to the Pittsburgh Pens) Sabres fan - he is just an extraordinary man. :)
Really enjoyed visiting your blog - great minds think alike, ;)
