Tri-Fold Shutter card..........

Morning peeps hope you haven't all been blown away with this awful weather, and its still as bad again this morning, thankfully everything is still in the garden, I expected a few fence panels to be down being as the wind as been so strong. Sorry didn't get round many blogs yesterday as we went to London for a day out, haven't been for a few years, so we had a wander round, I manged to find Blade Rubber stamps shop and picked up a gorgeous book by Somerset publications and a couple of new My Mind Eye paper books......scrummy vintage designs. We also went to the Transport museum in Covent Garden, Ethan would have loved it there as you could get on most of the exhibits. Problem with going to London after walking around for most of the day we then have to drive back, however this time I was prepared for the journey as I read going down and then read coming back and i managed to read the best part of a book.......don't worry I wasn't doing the driving, left that to hubby.
Thought I'd share a card that I made for Polkdoodles, I've never done one of these before, they look great when they're finished but it takes abit of filling up of all of the spaces. I followed the Tutorial at Top Tip Tuesday. The papers, image and sentiment are all from The Pretty Tuff Cd at Polkadoodles.

Super little card. I have made these before but it is a bit of a task sometimes filling up all the spaces. You have done a grand job with this one.

It's fabulous Daniele, I made one of these once, with sitting Tildas perched on the 'shelves', I must have another go. Sounds like a great day in London, it's so exhausting though isn't it? We always go down on the train to central London.

LOL I'm with you on this card. I've made one before but having to figure out what to do with all those spaces just wasn't worth the trouble to me. Lazy I guess. :-) I think you did a beautiful job.
So glad you enjoyed your day out. I would soooo love to visit England. Hugs!
