What a fantastic month and a bit of sport we've had! I was really sad to see the end of the Paralympics as I enjoyed it all so much! I've still got a few programs recorded on my sky box so I'll be able to ease myself away from it by watching a few wee bits here and there! I'm really gonna miss all the fantastic action of every event. All I can say is ROLL ON RIO!!
And just to end the week off nicely there was a fantastic F1 race in Italy - I wasn't fussed on the winner, but loved seeing Fernando getting a podium place in his Ferrari. Love it!
But, now that all the sport is over (well, the motorsport isn't yet!) it means there's lots of fab programs to watch on the telly! I caught the first episode of the return of Dallas last week and am looking forward to the next installment. I'm also so excited about the return of True Blood - we're only going to get to see series 5 now, even though the series finale was on in the States a while ago. And the first episode of Strictly is on on Saturday night - right up our street with all that glitter! Fab-u-lous! Time to get the exercise bike parked in front of the box me thinks!
Anyway, time for another challenge from the Creative Card Crew! Our challenge for the next fortnight is...
This time we are sponsored by the fabulous Simon Says Stamps with a fantastic prize of $20 to spend in their shop!
I decided to stick to a Christmas theme for my card, and as I regularly do, I made a selection of similar cards:
No colouring on these ones, so they were quite quick to make I used a selection of papers from the Kaiser Craft Christmas Carnival collection. Kaiser Craft papers are available at Simon Says Stamp.
I used the Stampin' Up! pennants punch and turned them upside-down to make little Christmas trees! I added some coloured Swarovski crystals as baubles.
The corners are Spellbinder dies from the Floral Accents set. A large selection of Spellbinders is available at Simon Says Stamp.
The sentiment is from CC Designs, Christmas Words and is completed on the inside of the card with "Peace & happiness at Christmas and throughout the new year" (I didn't take a pic as it's plain apart form the sentiment). I used another Stampin' Up! punch for the sentiment and my ribbon is from my stash.
So go and have a wee look at the fab inspiration from the rest of my teamies on the Creative Card Crew blog and have a go yourself!
