London Days meets London Fog!

Before I explain the title of today's post I want to share some photos taken yesterday at the opening of our Community Allotment project. As a community we raised money to design and build an allotment in our local park. It was designed by students form the American Intercontinental University in London. The design is based around how agriculture developed years ago along the River Nile.

From the first photo you will see the wooden allotment boxes are built off a wooden aqueduct and water butt in cased in recycled wood. The water rolls down the aqueduct and feeds each box.

We came together yesterday to celebrate the official opening-the Mayor and a number of council and MPs attended. The last photo is of Sarah-our Chair, Claire-our Deputy Chair, and myself-the Treasurer and fundraiser.......we think we are Charlies Angels!!
A fun day. And in the evening Callum and I enjoyed a salad of radishes and spinach that I had grown in our box!!


And now-why London days meet London Fog?? Well to be honest it is just because it is the first time I have used my memento ink called 'London Fog', purchased because I loved the name! And as my blog is called London days I thought that was a cool title (OK sad, I know!!)

My card today is a monochromatic black card using memento black tuxedo and London fog inks and both PTI sentiments and the mehndi medallion stamps and matching gems.
It is to go in a box of notelets for my friend's Birthday.

I here is the set of 3 to go in the pack. The same design with different colour combos and sentiments:

I will be entering my London Fog notelet into the monochromatic challenges on the following sites:
