Going in Circles

Over on the Penny Black Saturday Challenge they're looking for cards with 5 circles.  It took me a minute, but I am pretty sure the reason for this particular challenge is the upcoming Olympics.  I made this card using a Penny Black image of a mouse on a spool of thread, cut away the spool and gave him an Olympic torch (I used an oval punch and a leaf punch to make the flame).  I think I will send this to my dad before the Olympics get started - I got my love of sports from him and have many wonderful memories of watching football, basketball, and baseball games with him.  I even got to watch some of the 2008 Olympics with him.  Great memories.

Will you be watching the Olympics this year?

Beautiful card, Amy. Your dad will love it!

Yes, I plan on watching the Olympics. I wish I had attended back in the '60's when it was in Montreal which is the closest destination it's ever been for me.
