Addicted to Stamps and More #84

It is time for my favourite challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More, yes, you guessed it...it is our Clean And Simple challenge. We want to see a CAS project. 
This week we are very happy that Cathy is our Guest Designer, please take a look at her blog here, we just love her creations!

And this week I went all London on you again. In my defence I was prompted to be a couple of other challenges-details below.



I saw the London photo below at Inspired By challenges and knew I had to enter. And Laurel had commented that she couldn't wait to see what London buses were like. Then I saw the sketch this week at CAS(E) this Sketch and ping! This sketch gave me the opportunity to create a card to show Laurel what our buses are like....they either don't turn up for ages or they come along in groups of three! I have tried to show this by adding dimension (my road and first bus are die cut and popped up) and stamping off the bus stamp so it looks like they are behind each other. And instead of flowers you see in the sketch, I have Big Ben and a skyscraper!! I love how it turned out and I love the chain of inspiration that led me to it!
I am also going to enter this into the 'London' challenge at Moo-Mania

This week at Addicted to Stamps and More we are sponsored by StampArt Designs. You should check out their store-so many goodies!

And don't forget to see what the DT have made to inspire you.

Here is my inspiration this week

                 

Happy Stamping x

  3. I just love this card - a real taste of home! I so remember standing in line for my bus home, waiting for ages and then having the choice of 3 or even 4! I always got on the last in line - that way I got a seat :) Super Card Sandie!
