Christmas Gift

What a NIGHT for Team GB last night!!  OMG I am hoarse from yelling and shrieking lol.  Way to goooooooooo Team GB!!  And what about Michael Phelps!!  What a man!!  I am totally and utterly loving the Olympics and have been glued to the TV.  We even dashed out to the shops yesterday worked around what we wanted to watch lol.  Loving it!!

And now for an attempt at calm – breathe Bev. Today’s card features one of the new Lili of the Valley releases, this is Christmas Gift.  And yes I am still in me pastel phase, although I did make some more traditional cards yesterday.  The sentiment is from one of the new sets that are being released later this month.

And once again Nitwit Collections digi’s have come to the rescue.  I really don’t know what I would do without these for early Christmas cards,  The paper on today’s card is from the Heavenly kit.

Coloured with distress markers and inks with lots of Stickles and Viva Pearl Pen dots added.

  10. Great card Bev! I know what youmean about the olympics! I'm not particularly a sporty person, apart from the fact that I love cycling, but I have been blown away. I expected to be excited by all the cycling medals - got really carried away. And last night was incredible!! Keep it up Team GB! We're proud of you!!

  22. Gorgeous card Bev and that sentiment really suits that delightful fairy. I am exhausted with the Olympics, I almost feel as though I took part! Shame that it was Michael's last competitive swim and our GB athletes were stunning in athletics and loved the veladrome and rowing too. A great day to be British.....A x

  41. Hi Bev,
    Well you sound like a true fan and that is wonderful as our country needs it. I am very shameful I have to admit; I haven't watched much at all. I loved the opening gala, so lovely to show the world our growth throughout history. The Americans celebrate their history every Thanksgiving and I felt it was our pride showing in the same way.
    I adore your card, especially as it's in your pastel phase and nice to see the kraft style base again, it goes so well with this colour scheme. Enjoy your viewing.
    Hugs Linda x
