I'm not a sports nut. I couldn't name more then 10 professional football teams. When a sporting event is on TV... my eyes get heavy and shortly after I'm asleep. That being said, I LOVE THE OLYMPICS! I love watching all the different sporting events. I love cheering on Team USA. I think it is so cool that the World gets together and celebrates such an old tradition. I think it is special thing.
I have been so engrossed, that I wanted to make an Olympic card. When I started thinking about it...and ultimately concluded that was a little silly. Who do you send an Olympic card too? Magnolia recently released a collection of stamps called "Little Moscow". Clever on Magnolia's part... I never occurred to me that the Olympics were in Russia when I bought the little Russian Doll (Matryoshka Tilda) stamp. I really liked her, but hadn't a clue what I'd use her for. I dug through my stamps and found some sentiments that worked well together to create this cute "friendship" card.
