Back from London, and Got Sketch? 105

Hello! You may have wondered why I haven't posted anything for days. Well....Eric and I were in London for 5 days. We got back home about an hour ago (midnight on Wednesday). We had a fabulous time. We stayed at a hotel close to Covent Garden which is one of our favorite neighbourhoods. Of course we did some sightseeing, but we also shopped....till we dropped. I bought a new suitcase today because we couldn't fit everything in that one suitcase that we brought along on our way to London. {smile} On Tuesday night we went to see Wicked. What a fabulous musical! We both loved it a lot. The last time we were in London was in July 1996, and it was good to be back. London is a great city. The girls have been on holiday with my parents, and will come home on Friday.

A new sketch went up on the Got Sketch? blog, and I am one of the contributors. Sketch 105 is a great one, and here is my take on the card.

Supplies: Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Fine Linen, Plum Pudding) | Patterned paper: Papertrey Ink (Sugar Plum) | Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Background Basics: Christmas, Signature Christmas) | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Plum Pudding, Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo), Versamark | Ribbon: Papertrey Ink (Plum Pudding) | Twine: May Arts | Button: Papertrey Ink (Plum Pudding) | Pearl flourish, foam dots: Zva Creative | Tools: Papertrey Ink Medium Scalloped Border, Peace Be Still Collection, Sizzix Stars Die

Have a wonderful day!


  1. Londen is geweldig!! Wij zijn er in mei (voor het eerst) geweest en hebben er ook een geweldige tijd gehad. En tja, die winkels...ik wil nog steeds een keer terug om weer wat nieuwe koopjes bij Primark in te slaan:) Goed om te horen dat jullie het zo leuk hebben gehad.

    En je hebt ook een magisch mooi kaartje gemaakt! Dat paars geeft er net een eigen draai aan.

  2. Erg mooie kaart, weer eens wat anders met deze kleuren!

    Leuk... naar Londen geweest! ik ben er twee keer geweest, leuke stad en meer dan genoeg te doen, te kijken en inderdaad te shoppen.
    Ik ben bezig met een van je geschulpte kaarten, heb weer tijd na mijn vakantie.
    Nog niet af, maar in vergevorderde staat :)

    Groetjes, Marjan

  3. Ingrid this is a great Christmas card. Love the colors and the big star. Glad to hear you enjoyed London. I love that city! I remember doing a lot of window shopping because I was a broke college student traveling with friends and a back pack:)

  4. Sooooo very pretty!!! Love, love, love the colors!!!

  5. I love this...the colors are awesome! I particularly love the use of the star and Signature Christmas sentiment...just great!

  6. LOVE your card!! Beautiful! You are going to make me "need" that paper!!

  7. You have done beautiful things here with these papers! I love how you stamped the text on the scallops!

  8. So happy you had a wonderful trip to London! The shopping must have been amazing and Wicked is one of my favorite musicals of all time! This is such a pretty card. Love the purples! I just got the Peace Be Still dies and I can't wait to use them. Thank you for the inspiration, sweetie! ♥♥ Kay
