Olympic Nails: Stamping With Mash Plate 43 and British Flag

  Yesterdays challenge in the Facebook group, Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge, was for us to do a mani pertaining to the Olympic Opening Ceremony and the flag.  My creative juices were not flowing to much because the day before was a terrible mani day!  I did three different manicures and couldn't wrap my brain around any of them.  They all looked like crap!  I hate bad nail days.   I didn't get a chance to post this on time yesterday because I went to my best friends daughter's  birthday party right afterwords.  
  Who set a new high score on the Pac Man machine yesterday?  That's right, me!  Granted it resets every day but I got afruit that I had never seen before!  I love Pac Man.  That is the one game that I could play for ever and ever.  Any other game, like Centipede, lasts for about five minutes.
  I did my "olympic rings" in red and blue over white to represent the USA.  And I did the British Flag to represent where the Olympics are being help this year, London!  I am so jealous!  I want to go to London so bad.  I'm sure the natives are hating all the traffic there right now though.  My two must watches in the Olympics are diving and gymnastics, but seeing as how we have no tv, other than Netflix, I doubt I will get to see any of it this go around.  :-(
