~London!~

Simon Says Stamp and Show:LONDON
inspired me to create a card for my sister.



  While we were stationed in Germany, she came to visit.

If it weren't for her, I would have never had the guts to travel to

my dream destination~London.





With her help, I was able to do so with my girlies in tow 8 years ago.


Look how wittle they were!!!

 BTW, they wore those hats on the flight home(zero room to store elsewhere)...they weren't too thrilled about it.

I don't care...they looked way too cute in my photos!

I made a card for my sweet sister~I owe her a hello/thinking of ya.

I was so excited to use my cool double decker bus button.


(Papertrey Ink Grunge Me,Papertrey Ink All Booked Up,Spellbinders classic circles,Ranger Tim Holtz distress ink fired brick,Sassafras flowers,Piggy Tales DP,Bazzill cardstock,Memento ink london fog,Creative Memories corner rounder)




I'm hoping she will remember that chapter of time...when we got to visit Shakespeare's globe and other cool sites.



We are both English majors, so that was a HAVE TO.

We even rode those red buses!


I glittered up some buttons for Make It Monday #54:Glitter Buttons.
Ashley's tutorial offers a variety of ways to add glitter to your buttons.

I used my daughter's glitter glue to give some sparkle to these awesome Sassafras button flowers.


Thanks for stopping by! ;)

  6. Marlena, another great design! I love the ink splat and how the twill connects your focal points - very nicely done. I love PTI and Ranger products too. Did you know that Tim Holtz is from Arizona? We have some wonderfully talented people who live in our beautiful state.
