Going to Rio

If you are looking for my Melonheadz Challenge card, please scroll up. 

It is the 15th of the month and that means we get to show off a new Dueling Darlings challenge. For the August Challenge, Judy and Debbie, decided on the theme.  Debbie is one of the Darlings and Judy is a Diva, my team!

This theme this month is : Going to Rio with the Olympic Darlings!  The 2016 Summer Olympics is currently going on, until August 21st.  There will be a record number of countries participating in 306 events in 28 sports.  (there also is a refuge team of 20 athletes, participating under the Olympic flag.)  The motto for the Rio Olympics is "A New World".

Judy sent a variety of great embellishments to go with this cute image.  Judy contacted the owner of Scrappin' Doodles to use her digital image for our duel and I am so glad she did!  I then "had" to go to the site and purchased some additional digis.  Thanks for enabling me Judy!  I used one of my newest purchases, a set of cross-stitched oval dies from Gina Marie for the image and background.  Judy sent a sheet of gold, silver and bronze paper--so I used all three of them!  I used three of the ribbons she sent--that is the red, yellow and green banners on the bottom right of the ovals.

Judy and Debbie also asked us to share our favorite summer Olympic event.
I would say whatever is on TV at the time I am watching.  Bring retired, I am able to watch all day long, every day possible.  I LOVE the Olympics!  Being a retired Physical Education teacher and coach, I enjoy watching pretty much any sport.  I do not understand all of them, especially rugby, one of the new ones in 2016.  I do like the major ones--swimming, gymnastics and volleyball, as I coached high school girls volleyball for 19 years!

Here is the inside of my card:

Fun card and beautifully executed Barb - I enjoy the rugby 7's, but that's about it - I didn't watch it, nor have I watched anything else other than news coverage. I'm not really into sport.
