FM112 Clean Sports

I'm posting tomorrow's Friday Mashup challenge a little early because tomorrow the NEW CATALOG STARTS!!!  And you think to yourself, "Excited much?"  Well, ya!  ;)  Here's Lisa's challenge for us.

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project using the "Colors of your Favorite Sports Team"
  2. Create a "Clean and Simple Project".
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "Clean and Simple Project using the Colors of your Favorite Sports Team".
Over my lifetime, I've followed nearly every major professional team sport, at one time or another.  But sport-spectating has never stuck with me for too long.  I like to play!  One exception would be baseball.  Although I can't sit still long enough to watch a game, we do battle Yankees vs. Mets in this house.  You can tell from my card which team I favor.

In addition to the Mets' team colors, these are also the colors of our bike team, Pawling Cycle & Sport.  Good luck to my husband and his best buddy Paul, who are racing a mountain bike stage race this week in Pennsylvania, seven days, 200 miles, 28,000 feet in climbing.  They are biking as a team and have to stay within 30 seconds of each other at all times.  Yikes!  Here's a blast-from-the-past pic of hubby and me in our team jerseys.

Stamps: Pedaling Past; Paper: Tangerine Tango, Night of Navy, Whisper White, Travel Journal DSP; Ink: Tangerine Tango, Night of Navy; Accessories: Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch, Petal Cone die, Big Shot, Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!

Wow - 30 seconds within each other at all times? That's a challenge in itself, never mind the 'race' aspect of it. Good luck to them! Love how crisp and fresh your card is this week.
