Another "C" card! .........What's going on?



Hiya girls~

Oh my "Giddy Aunt" I cannot believe I have made another "C" card and it's only July!!!
In our house it is a standing joke that we never use the "C" word until August!
I know...it's daft isn't it? But it's just how it's always been! LOL

I am quite excited as I have the "Olympic Games" bug, cannot wait for the Gymnastics, Velodrome,
Athletics, boxing, rowing, swimming.....everything really! Not allot I don't like (accept cars going round and round, but don't think that happens in these games!!)
Not sure about our opening ceremony, don't know what I was expecting really, but i knew one thing NOTHING could compare to Beijing, that was incredible and I remember at one time almost crying it was so good!

Anyway down to business.  I had no choice in making this "C" card,  the "Powers that be" over at Sweet Stampin' have chosen the theme for this weeks challenge.
(Ta Girls, I am now making a start on my stash of "C" cards needed for this year. It's never too early to start now is it? Especially with the great hoard I had to make last year!!)
I now have a stash of about 12, so only about 240 to go!!  LOL

Our sponsors this week are Di's Digi Downloads.

So onto my card.  I hope you like it.


I have chosen one of my favourite LOTV images, what a cute little couple.
I just love this image and last year I made quite a lot of "C" cards using it.

The paper is one of my favourites by Graphic 45. Thank goodness I bought a load of it just recently, as it has now gone out of print and it will be very hard to get hold of.
The beauty about this paper is, it is double sided and I have used both sides on this card. I love the black and beige holly pattern one side and the sweet little "Carol" paper the other side. I like to cut the Carol paper up like this, looks like a little postcard by the time it is matted up.
I have also used some light coloured Kraft card. All edges are inked with black soot.
Not sure who's sentiment this is. Chocolate pearls are Hobby House.

That's a gorgeous festive card (note that I didn't use the C word!).

I host a Rudolph Day challenge on the 25th of each month if you feel the urge to make another C Card!!!!
