A bit cuter Brit!

Staying on the Brit theme today........but going a little bit cuter.....and a lot more layered......with one of the lovely Penny Black London 2012 Collection......and as I always struggle with male cards......I think these stamps will be useful for all manner of cards......including male ones.
The papers are a combination of 'Portobello Road' and some magazine freebies.
And today is 'operation speak out' .....the brainchild of Abi.......encouraging everyone to comment on the posts that they read today.....it's so easy to just read and jump onto the next blog......but we all love comments.......so please do leave one today.....wherever you go.

One good thing to come out of us hosting the Olympics this year is the amount of 'Brit' styled things in the shops. Love this card!

Oh my! Love the phone booth!

Abi said...

I love the card. What a sweet phone box. I agree with Debs, there are some beautiful union jack themed products in the shops at the moment! Thanks for joining in with operation speak out! Abi x

Love your cute layered card a lot. I also liked yesterday's one layer card, too. That one would be a lot easier to mail because there are no bumps.

The background paper is very cute - I've always been a fan of bunting - and love those phone booths.

Aw! This is really cute! It made me smile - and made me even more determined to search out some "Brit" products of my own. Lovely stuff.

Amazing how just a few small images - like the animals and the phone box - can speak such cute volumes! Your blue, red and white works really well.

The phone booth is great - I love the hedgehog.
Now the Camellia looks lovely with lots of beautiful flowers but the plant itself looks a bit odd as it is very narrow. Great what photos hide isn't it ;)
