Simply British

The theme on Try it on Tuesday this week is 'so very British' - to show a little bit of Britishness on a project.

So I've made two cards, one with a London taxi and the other with a London bus. These tags are embroidered items that I bought ages ago thinking they would come in handy one day.

The backing papers are Best Creation Transportation - the one with the bus has a piece of the reverse side across the bottom and the one with the taxi has a couple of pieces of stitched ribbon. These were offcuts from a previously used 12 x 12 paper that had been in my snippets box for far too long.

These are also for:

Pixie's crafty snippets 29
Hiding in my craftroom 54: super scraps Saturday
The pretty little ribbon shop 12: tags (the second card)
One stop craft 191: let's travel around the world
Nutcrafters 22: one for the boys
Paperminutes 226: only patterns and ornaments
Crazy amigo: free theme
