Show your pride!

Hi friends! 

There's only 58 more days until the summer Olympics in Rio
Such an exciting time to see the young athletes that have trained long and hard, dedicating so many hours to their sports make it this far.
And I always get a little teary eyed watching the running with the torch :*)
My card today is one showcasing soccer Riley,
ready for the field in his Team USA jersey!
The challenge at The Ink Spot this week: Show your pride!
We are HUGE European soccer fans in our home,
and also a house divided :)  
 My husband is always rooting for Spain 
while I'm always cheering on Germany!
 In fact, during the FIFA World Cup,
our home gets absolutely bananas with being glued to the tv,
cheering on our teams, and in his case - tears of defeat, hee hee!
I jest :)


  In the spirit of celebrating our athletes right here in our hometowns,
I stamped/colored up soccer Riley with a patriotic, team USA feel.
So many of us 'soccer parents' are/have spent countless hours
cheering for our children as they played on fields at local parks and schools,
and even watched them go on to play at colleges and professionally.

To all the athletes, I applaud you ♥

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
