London Calling................

It's time for the July, Artistic Outpost blog hop! This month, I'm travelling over "the pond" to jolly ol' London.........going to see things I've only dreamed about, chase the pigeons and ride the Underground. May have to rent me a scooter, cuz my legs aren't strong enuf yet to handle all that walking, but I'm gona' give it a try. See you there! Cheerio! (Oh yes, Queenie and I are having lunch! lol)




I have used images from the London Underground and London Elements plates in my collage.  You will love that all stamps are cling mounted stamps!  I'm entering my card in the following challenge - Our Daily Bread Designs - ODBDSLC210 Stencils or Sponging.

Please stop by our Design Team gals, and see what they have made for you this month.

Ah you see... great minds! I'm in London too this hop - love your Sherlock figure and fabulous phone box. My favourite bit though is those shabby vintage station names - what a great London collage.

What a great collage, Gerrie, stealing bits and pieces from the London scene! That phone booth, so well recognized in red, is my favorite element! A great design against your brickwork! Well done!
