Go Canada Go !

Sorry to my American friends...I couldn't resist this.

Here's a card I created today after the Canadian Men's Hockey team beat the Americans to advance to the Gold Medal game in Sochi at the 2014 Olympics.


It uses a really cute Cheryl Alger Image from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

I also should mention that I watched the women's game yesterday afternoon and bit all my nails off during it, as Canada came from a 2-0 deficit to tie the game with about 3 minutes left. Then they won in 4 on 4 overtime. Glad that's over...way to go Women's Team Canada Hockey team.

I'm entering it in the following challenges:
1. Kraftin' Kimmie - #217 - Anything Goes
