Ooooh, super exicted!

Hello Blogland,

I was very lucky awhile back to have a card win over at AAA Birthday Challenges and, as the winner, was asked if I'd like to Guest Designer for their July challenge - well of course I said yes! Not going to turn down a lovely opportunity like that now am I now!

So we are in July and here I am a Guest Designer - the theme for the challenge this month is Where in the World? Which basically means your birthday card could be themed to where you live (a recognisable building / monument / location; colours of your flag; bit of landscape), somewhere you've been on holiday or somewhere you'd like to go in the world. However, it does have to be a birthday card.

I decided my inspiration would be what I like to refer to as my home town. I've lived in Lincolnshire in the countryside of the United Kingdom for just over 20 years, but I am originally from a much bigger town - in fact the Capital of the UK - a little place I used to call home but others call London!

This is what I made:

Supplies Used:

Digital stamp:
Lili of the Valley - Little Policeman
coloured with my Copics
Free downloaded London image

Rubber Stamp:
Catherine Pooler - All around Wishes (sentiment)

Creative Expressions - stitched squares
Julie Hickey - Birthday

Once again I'd like to say thank you to the Design Team (and particularly Jane for all her help with the details of the challenge) over at AAA Birthdays for giving me the chance to GDT - their makes are always fabulous and I'm honoured to be included in the Team this once! 

See you soon,
Signing off for now,
