Follower Freebie: Go Canada Go!

 If you are looking for the Fresh Brewed Designs Blog Hop, please click HERE.
Okay, so like I've been trying to get this done and out for the past two days.  I'm such a super fan of winter sports.   I obviously can't play any.  Even when I was physically capable, I was never any good at anything but I've always enjoyed watching them.  In fact the only winter sport I don't enjoy watching is cross country skiing which ironically is the only winter sport I ever was able to pull off; however as I said, I wasn't any good at it but just for a way to work out as a youngster, I managed.

Anyways, every four years I have a blast watching as much of the Winter Olympics as I can possibly manage.  Good thing that it is available on demand and that I can also tape some on the DVR.  In fact, as I sit here creating this post, I've been watching the 1500 M, Men's Short Track Speed Skating.  I've gone from seeing the heats to now watching the B finals.  There is one Canadian in the A finals, Charles Hammelan, one of Canada's Olympic stars.  Let's see if I can watch Canada earn another medal.  So far, I have seen the snowboarding slopestyle event where our dynamic 20 year old Mark McMorris pulled off winning Canada's first medal of the games, a bronze, while nursing a broken rib.  Then I was fortunate enough to watch the women's moguls where our darling Canadian sisters, Justine and Chloe Dufour-Lapointe pulled of Canada's first gold and silver medals.  YaY CaNaDa!

But before we get to that point, and I know you didn't pop in to merely hear me brag about our amazing Canadian athletes, here is the reason I'm still typing at 11:30 pm.  In honour of the Olympics and also  in honour of Canada's first gold, silver and bronze medals, I bring you a freebie.  I thought what better than to create a world paper.  Since the Olympics are in Russia, I have gone with creating a blue one.

I'm also dedicating this as a follower freebie.  Gosh I haven't done one of those in a dog's year and boy do I have some catching up to do.  Like a hundred or so!!!

Follower Freebie #39:    In honour of 'scrappindede' who became a follower on November 7th, 2012. 

As usual, this paper is 3600 x 3600 pixels (i.e. 12 inches) and is published at 300 dpi.  Credit information for this paper can be found in the credit note below. 

Oh and poop the DVR kicked in and kicked me off the on demand feature which means that I'm going to have to wait and see if we pulled off that medal in short track a little bit later.  Guess what I'm watching when I go to bed! 

Until next time,

I also love the winter Olympics. Luge and Figure Skating are my favorites, but I enjoy watching them all, from my cozy, warm living room! Thanks for the blue paper and for sharing your thoughts.

I´m definitely NOT into any sport and I HATE anything cold like freezing and snow he he, but I do understand the national feeling and pride, when one of our countrymen are doing a great job and winning big, even it´s not something for you. I even saw a handballgame here when Denmarks men went sooo well ehre a short while ago, something I had never thought I would do he he.
Thanks soooooo much for the awesome paper here, I could really have used that just before christmas, when I was asked to make a huge card for a young couple, who were taking of on a worldwide trip for a year, but now I have it next time ha ha ha, and it´s even blue my favorit color too he he Thanks sooo very much.

This is gorgeous paper Lisa...and such a great way to celebrate the Olympics. My family and I have also been glued to the tv since it started lol. I would be hard pressed to say which we love more...although my daughter and I are not as big on curling as my hubby is lol. We had a special reason for watching this year as my friend's daughter was part of the women's luge team...her name is Kimberly McRae and she came in 5th and her team mate Alex Gough came in 4th! Was so wonderful to see, especially since the closest Canada has ever gotten was 7th. Again, thanks so much for the fab paper, I'm sure it will come in handy.
