On the Buses! Saturday 16th March

Good Morning Blog Friends,

The weekend is here! This is one of the guy cards I made a few weeks ago, which turned out to be fortuitous  as a lady bought it from me last Saturday, to give to someone who owns his own London Bus and uses it for private hire!

The stamp is a Pilkington from Stamps Away and I used the Kickin' Rubber tyre tread M-Bossability again, this time on matt/silk gold mirror card. I found the old London bus tickets and newspaper cuttings on the internet.

The card is matted and layered on black card and finished off with bakers twine. The greeting is a Creative Expressions stamp, which is stamped with versa mark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

I didn't get any crafting done yesterday, but we did have a fabulous lunch at Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstalls new River Cottage Canteen in Bristol, followed by a rather wet stroll around the local shops!
