London Love

Yesterday I received the London Calling collection from Penny Black in the mail. I've been wanting them since I saw the 2012 catalogue and since my birthday is on Sunday (the 24th) I figured I would treat myself. These were NOT cheap, but whatever. That's what birthdays are for and I LOOOOOOOVE anything London or British in general. I swear to you, I was born in the wrong country. ((pouts))
 These are the two cards I made. I've wanted the snowglobe for a while because it's an empty canvas. You can put whatever you want in it. So, I put the city of London in it! Yay! Then I played around with the double decker bus stamp. I love all the animals on it. And I have a ton of ideas with this one so I'm excited.


  1. From a fellow June baby (next Tuesday!) happy birthday and I love your purchases and freebies! Have a good week, Helen 33

  2. Happy birthday for Sunday! And oh my.. I don't think I'd get any work done with that poster hanging in my work space.. Yummy!

    Happy WOYWW

  12. If you thinks that's messy - you have another think coming !!!
    It looks super tidy to me !! Looks like you are having lots of fun with the London Stamps - all that's really popular this year over here what with the Queen's Jubilee earlier this month, England winning their group in the footie last night & the Olympics & ParaOlympics in August - every village has been a frenzy of Union Jack bunting !!!! So if you want an authentic British look - definately go bunting !!! Have a great week ! Ali #39
