We had a local resident of McHenry County run The SteepleChase at the Olympics today. It was so exciting to see someone we knew competing at that level.  My two oldest kids did track at CaryGrove HS,  they often competed against Jager,  all they could say was"  That kid is amazing," as he blew past everyone.

Between errands and the Olympics I did get some playtime in.  I have been dying to try this "triple stamping effect"  ever since I saw a few cards made with it on the internet.  Its so easy yet it looks difficult.  Next time I think I'm gonna pop up the second layer for added dimension.

I played with the sunflower stamp from StampinUP, Reason to Smile, used Espresso ink and paper.  ribbon from stash.
