21st Card- London theme

Good afternoon everyone, today's card- background some postcard type stamps that I have had for ages. Stamps by Kanban, heat embossed, ribbon and numerals from stash, that's it, that is all I had for London. I have been dashing about like a loon all afternoon, trying to keep myself busy, as my grandson Jake has had an operation to have a skin graft over a hole in his ear drum. Thankfully have just received a text to say he is out of theatre, so I can relax a little now.  I have included some more garden pics on today's post.

Just a tiny island of grass/weeds left in the middle, and yet another pile of housebricks that have been dug up!
Not many sleepers left now.
Weedproof membrane going down, hopefully farewell dock leaves!
Now the hardcore.
Now it is all being compacted. Well that's it for today, take care.


  1. Hi Carole,
    super card. I love the Big Ben stamps. Such a handy stamp to have.
    Great design too.
    Oh wow your garden is coming on a treat. It is going to be a lot easier to manage from now on.
    So glad your grandson has had a successful op. It's not nice while your waiting news about it.
    I remember my Dad giving up smoking when my nephew had an op to remove a tumour from behind his kidney. He sat outside the hospital in his car and prayed, and said if he came through it he would never smoke again, and he never did, and my nephew is now a grandfather
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  2. Your card is fabulous Carol, I love the images and fabulous layout.
    Glad that your Grandson's op went okay.
