Not surprisingly our Turkey Olympics Christmas e-card proved to be a big hit in 2012. The London Olympics of 2012 was a definite highlight here at KatiesCards.com – it was great to see the Torch relay and Cycling near to our office.

Good Luck Team GB! 2012.07.26.

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

I can barely contain my excitement about the Olympics. Its such a wonderful event and I have the upmost respect for all athletes. Their dedication to their passion is utterly inspiring and although I will be cheering loudly for Team GB, I do feel proud of every athletes’ achievement.

The opening ceremony commences tomorrow at 9pm British time and I have a feeling we are in for a real treat!

To show my support, I sent Team GB our specially designed London 2012 Olympics e card with a message from everyone at Katie’s Cards cheering them on. Take a look at the card here. You can post a message of support to Team GB too by visiting http://www.facebook.com/TeamGB. To send our Olympic e card to the page simply send the card to yourself (with your special message for Team GB) and when you receive the email with the link to the card, simply copy and past the link onto the Team GB Facebook page for all to see!

16 days until the London 2012 opening ceremony 2012.07.11.

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

There are only 16 days left until the London 2012 Olympic’s opening ceremony begins!

This an incredibly exciting time for many people across the globe especially those who live in England, who have been anticipating this fantastic event since 2007. The construction of the Olympic park and re-generation of the surrounding area has been the focus of much attention since work began in May 2008. The site contains the huge Olympic stadium, Aquatics Centre, the Olympic village which is used for accommodation for athletes, a Velodrome and a white water centre.

It’s quite unbelievable to think that such a huge amount of work has been completed in such a short space of time. Take a look at this fantastic time-lapse video which shows you the Olympic stadium and surroundings under construction to completion;

The opening ceremony, named the ‘Isles of Wonder’ commences at 9pm on Friday the 27th of July and will sure to be entertaining. Danny Boyle, Artistic Director of the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony said:

‘Our Isles of Wonder salutes and celebrates the exuberant creativity of the British genius in an Opening Ceremony that we hope will be as unpredictable and inventive as the British people’

I’m sure you’ll agree that this is definitely something to celebrate and enjoy with loved ones. Its not too late to organise your own opening ceremony party or get together so why not take advantage of our specially designed, London 2012 e card and send your loved ones an invite to your themed party?
