Stampers for Others Challenge!

I posted our "Stampers for Others Challenge" for August just in time to celebrate the olympics this month:


The Summer Olympics have made their grand entrance this week and as teammates for Stampers for Others, wouldn't it be great to give support to our USA Olympic Friends? Here are your options for this months challenge:

  • Create a card using the Olympic ring colors above 
  • Create a card using "rings" or "circles" 
  • Or create a card combining both using the Olympic ring colors AND "rings" or "circles" Card does not have to be sports-related! Anything goes! Go USA!
My Card:


I needed a card for mailing to a wedding that I can not attend and thought these colors might prove to be interesting. Funny how you can turn a sports-related photo into a wedding card!
