Default JUN16VSNL ~ Saturday, June 18 - 7 pm EST ~ Bird On! ~ Covington Crafter

Challenge Title: Bird On!
Hostess: Carla (Covington Crafter )
Keyword: JUN16VSNL
Date: Saturday, June 18, 2016 - 7 PM EST

Did you know that badminton is a summer Olympic sport? “With shuttlecocks traveling at up to 400 km/h (249 m/h), badminton requires fast reflexes from the players and the audience’s full attention. It has been in the Games since Barcelona 1992. Men and women compete in individual and doubles events, and mixed doubles." Rio 2016 Olympic

Here are some more fun badminton facts. The conical feathery balls, shuttlecocks, the players hit are also referred to as a birdie. And, “bird on” is a cautionary call that a birdie has landed on the playing court from an adjacent court.



So, land some birdies in my court! I'll take lovely birds in their natural habitat or silly birds doing silly things or something in between. Go for the gold with birds engaged in any Olympic sport, especially badminton!

View the JUN16VSNL Bird On! gallery: HERE

I have never seen a stamp of a bird playing badminton. But I do have a nice bird stamp so I can play along.

I don't have any birds playing sports - or really any sports stamps at all. But I had fun getting this old stamp set out. TFL.

I love all the marvelous cards in this gallery! I appreciate the time all of you have spent on the cards and your creativity.

All those pretty cards have inspired me to create another. Here's A Little Bird Told Me!. It's also for this week's color and CAS challenges. I just happen to need a birthday card for tomorrow. TFL
